Snowmen Disasters: Calvin and Hobbes Come to Life

I refuse to read email forwards and chain letters. Even if they're actually hilarious, or educational, I simply skip past them on principal...sorry, Dad.


Well, except for one. Each year, around this time of year, someone passes along a collection of the macabre snow art of Calvin and Hobbes, and I'm instantly transported back to the heyday of Bill Watterson's excellent work, and I'm thankful to have been a kid in the eighties and early-nineties.

And I'm also thankful for these clever, cold-weather peers, who've taken some inspiration from young Calvin and made their own real life nightmare-ish snowmen.   WebUrbanist has assembled a collection of thirty-eight that really are worth checking out.


See them here.

Thanks. Those were fun! 


To Anonymous #! - missed that one. Made me laugh, though, just to read about it. Thanks to both the blog author and the first commentor.

These are great! Do you remember the one with the ice-cream scoop? One snowman is on the ground dead, with an ice-cream scoop stuck in his back. The other snowman is enjoying a snowcone...
