Nah, I have loud pipes for that. The bell is old folklore that is supposed to get rid of the road gremlins. Back in the day, I had my fair share of grinding my butt on asphalt - I think they have since left me alone. Maybe I should of had a bell.

I would go ahead and put the bell up. Like others have said, if you don't like it take it down. However with the way the outside of your chimney is sooted up, I think it won't be long before the bell is sooted up as well.
In my opinion you would not be blaspheming anyones faith beliefs by doing so either.

Definitely a bell, if not a gargoyle.

Thanks for the replies everyone. We'll bell it. I'll post a picture when I get around to installing it. . .

The reason all your friends (including here) suggest it needs a bell is because it looks like a bell tower, or belfry. More Spanish mission style. I think it would look great with a bell. We have a bell (not in the chimney of course) beside the oven that we ring every time a pizza comes out of the oven and all my workers yell "Pizza". It's great fun and after a time or two, even the guests start chiming in. It makes it a lot of fun. Kids are sure to enjoy it. I would like a photo of the entire oven to make a final judgement, however.
