Kid Rock Putting Up Giant Middle Finger Statue

Kid Rock is getting a new lawn ornament for his Nashville home: A seven foot tall statue of a hand glipping the middle finger. He got the idea from a Vermont man named Ted Pelkey... who put one on his own property to protest his town's refusal to let him develop his land.

Rock actually called Ted and told him, quote, "I like your style."  Ted hooked him up with the artist who made the statue, and the guy made another one for Rock.  he artist is personally driving it from Vermont to Nashville for him.

Here is a photo of the originally statrue that Ted has in his yard:
