Lawn Jockey

Lawn jockeys like the one I recently spotted in a small Missouri town were once fixtures on Midwestern lawns. As they're patently offensive, it's now rare to find a figurine that's not alabaster white. And even these modified statues are usually confined to the property of elderly folk. I suppose that the lawn jockeys I recall from my childhood were either tossed in the trash or quietly pawned off to collectors and antique dealers at garage sales in the late '60s.
