While I can't say definitively whether the "" singer would fill his lawn with a set of plastic, holiday-themed lawn ornaments, I am saying you could.

You're going to need a second to take this in.

The flamingos stand about 33 inches tall, but make no mistake—they're every bit as eye-catching as that 6-foot-tall inflatable your neighbor puts up the day after Thanksgiving. You can find both versions on Amazon: One sold as a two-pack (one Santa, one reindeer), and one epic four-pack, so you can recreate your own truncated, tropical version of Santa's sleigh.

Your neighbor can keep grumbling. It's your yard—you do you.
