In an episode of All in the Family, Archie Bunker was given a black lawn jockey as a gift by his friends for paying off his mortgage. After seeing it Archie thanked his friends but refused to put it outside because he didn't want people bothering him about it. (taken from Wikipedia)
I remember this episode and my brother thought it was so funny (of course it was the 70s). Now we get "The Jeffersons" and other old shows on Deja View and my 27 year old son is enjoying them, too. We sometimes talk about things like how a woman's role was different back then i.e. expected to stay home and not have a career etc.
p.s. All in the Family was apparently based on a British Sit-Com but I cannot remember which one (and I am too tired to go look it up on Wikipedia) not-nadine - could you go put on your boots and trudge through the snow for me?
What? Me?? okay.

...now THIS is a Lawn Jockey!...
That black lawn jockey, "blown up to three, maybe four times its normal size", creeping around the Key, really freaked me out! When I think of Duma Key, second only to the paintings, I think of Elizabeth's lawn jockey.
