American Practical Joke - Plastic Lawn Flamingos




American Practical Joke - Plastic Lawn Flamingos





This is our neighbor's front yard. There are two pieces of 'Americana' culture in this picture. This is hard to explain, but I will give it a try.

The first, and most obvious, are the many plastic flamingos decorating the yard. A flamingo is a type of coastal bird. It is usually pink and very tall and you can find them in Florida. Many houses in Florida - primarily in retirement communities - have one or two plastic pink flamingos decorating the front lawn.

The second piece of Americana is that this is the woman's 40th birthday (see sign). Since the average life expectancy of a developed country like America is 80+ years, turning 40 is considered the second half of your life. You are done being young and you are starting to get old.

Pink flamingos are a tacky yard decoration for elderly people in Florida. When someone turns 40, it is not uncommon to receive a pink flamingo as a "joke" gift. This poor woman's yard was COVERED in pink flamingos. Lucky her!

No cars, only pedestrians and a Trolley car for your pleasure takes you around. It was decorated with Christmas/Holidays spirit. I took a stroll and clicked my camera every step I took.
