Survey Question(s)

Ok, so I'm caught in between "this Old House" and "decorate for Halloween" modes lately and I am having trouble making a decision. Which would be a better or more amusing thing to build:

a) A coffin

b) Functional (but not lethal) electric chair

c) Medieval stocks

Realistically I could probably make c regardless of which of a or b I pick, but I'm not sure which would be more amusing for general halloween/home decor. I've got both designed but I'm pretty sure that I could only make one of them in time for Halloween this year (but hey, I can always make the other one for Christmas ;). The coffin would take more wood-working since I want it to be a traditional truncated long diamond (as opposed to a plain rectangular box), but the electric chair would involve finding a few things that I don't currently have on hand.

So which should it be? Oh, and feel free to suggest other morbid/seasonal items that I might have overlooked. I've been looking for some twisted home improvement projects and all suggestions would be welcome ;)

Well, I'm partial to the cool coffin, but that's probably because electric chairs freak me out.

But I also think stocks would be a great thing to have just inside the front door. Just to startle people when they come in or come to the door. :)

Vic...you're scary enough so you could sit on the rock next to the door holding like 1 unwrapped peppermint star candy w/ a big ol' grin on your face, dressed hm...as usual and that would definitly freak some kids out more than an electric chair or coffin...no doubt
