A Conversation for How to Build a Snowman

Calvin & Hobbes

For truly imaginative snowman design, you *NEED* to read Calvin & Hobbes.
These cartoons have snowmen, snow-women, snow-monsters, snow-aliens - in a variety of sizes and hilarious scenarios...

A particular favourite is one scene involving a snow-spaceship and a couple of snow-aliens holding blasters, and a snowman with his head blown off. (Ok, that sounds nasty, but it's only snow, right?)

Quite right. Calvin & Hobbes is essential reading, but especially for Calvins Gruesome Snow Halls of Infamy...

In particular I remember his Dad leaving the house one snowy morning to find a macabre scene around and in front of his car where it seemed a snow person had been run over, with distraught-looking snow-folk gathered around... Classic.

Or indeed, his Snow Torture Chamber, with a snowman sawing off the top of another's head...

Inspirational. Roll on the snow... smiley - biggrin

Ahh yesss, Exsssellent.

My fave is in the collection "Attack of the Killer Snow Goons"

I don't even need to describe it. Calvin explains it well.

Frame 1
Calvin: "See my snowman?

Frame 2
Calvin: "He's enjoying a snow cone! There's nothing he likes better!"

Frame 3
Hobbes: "And the snowman with the ice cream scoop in his back?"
Calvin: "It's a sordid story."

I liked the alien snowmen, complete with blasters and snow-ship.

And the one with a cannon and a snowman with a hole through the middle.

(There's lots aren't there...)
