Step 1: Materials

What you need:
1. Cutoff pant leg
2. Old sock
3. Old shoe
4. Duct tape
5. Yesterdays newspaper

Step 2: Procedure

Ok, stuff the Old sock with newspaper. Stick it into the Old shoe. Now stick the Sock/shoe combo into the Cutoff pant leg, and duct tape the two together. Tadaa! Now use your sense of humor (lol) to find a place to stick it. I would recommend making two (two shoes, two socks, two pant legs... Hmmm.), which makes it look a lot more realistic.

    have these hanging out of your trunk while driving through a city :D

    make it like that Home Alone movie...when he pulls the legs and that starts something....(in the movie it was a lawnmower that ran him over) but i think that you can just go to the costume store and costum-ize the legs... that would be funny
