EL PASO COUNTY, CO -

Some residents of Colorado's El Paso County are making a stink about their neighbor's interesting choice of lawn art.

They're demanding the two toilets and a sink that are tied to a tree in the front lawn to be taken down, claiming it's "disgusting" to look at.

One neighbor, Angela Johnson, even went so far as to build a fence at her property line so she doesn't have to look at the toilets.

"..had the commodes right at the property line faced towards me. So I said I had enough. So I had them come out and build me a fence... That's so nasty in the front yard."

The woman responsible for the art has chosen to keep her identity secret, but says it's an expression of her creativity.

"This is America. Everybody has a right, got their right or whatever. It's not criminal, but it's dangerous. It's unsafe for the children," said Johnson.

Some neighbors say the display is dangerous and that the toilets could fall and hurt children.
