FLINT, Mich., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Former Mayor of Flint, Mich., Don Williamson erected a statue of himself outside his new Davison Township home, neighbors say.

The statue, along with six bronze lion statues outside the gated entrance to his home within the past month, The Flint (Mich.) Journal Thursday.

Etched on the back of the base of the statue is: "The Colonel's Inc. Founded by Donald J. Williamson May 10, 1984. His motto 'Success is the best revenge.'"

"I think it's funny," said neighbor Amy Duncan. "It's ridiculous."

Duncan's husband Ryan said they wondered what other work Williamson would do at the property.

"I said, 'What's he doing, building a moat?'" Ryan Duncan joked. "It's a joke. Someone is going to do something to that statue."
