In a playful Halloween parody, a Westchester man is displaying a mock graveyard on his front yard paying homage to "dying trends of 2017," including everything from politics to pop culture.

Michael Fry is a 39-year-old art teacher in Mamaroneck, and his students were eager to lend a helping hand, reports ABC News, which featured the display in a segment on "Good Morning, America ," sparking a stir on social media.

The tradition began three years ago.

“Being a teacher, I get input from my students and friends and family members, and it’s become a collaborative effort," Fry told ABC News.

Among this year's gravestones: "Trump Care," "Watching Live TV," "Plump Lips," "Old Taylor Swift," and even a weather-themed one: "Normal Seasons."
