Noisemakers

It would have been interesting to live back in historical times where 
people apparently felt that evil spirits were ubiquitous, yet 
excruciatingly timid. If using a fifty-cent cardboard horn to make a duck 
noise scares off evil spirits for an entire year, I figure putting up a 
small sign saying "EVIL SPIRITS WILL BE TOWED AT OWNER'S EXPENSE" should 
keep them out of my hair for a decade or so. C+
