"Big smile, it'll be over soon!"

I work in a frame shop. There's a staircase with a 180 degree turn in it that leads from backstage to public space. The last thing employees see is a blank spot at eye level that's about 2 feet wide by 1 foot. I'd like to put something silly and PG13 there that would cheer everyone up when they see it. We have to be able to take it down periodically (and I'm open to changing it out every so often.) I was thinking a plastic dinosaur (plastic dinosaurs are inherently funny) with a thought balloon, but maybe MeFi can do better.

Cheap is good. Can't insult anyone. Shouldn't project very far outward. We don't have an outlet there, and I'd prefer unpowered, but battery-operated is OK. We need to be able to take it down and hide it when VIPs are expected. I am open to fabricating something rather than buying something. Nothing dangly or heavy. We have some flexibility with height but not width.
