Growing up in a country that hardly has snow, my wife and I never had these childhood memories – took her to New Zealand last year for the first snow she’d ever seen in her life, and we made a snow(slush)man. It was truly, epically terrible. We were so proud!
Great first panel! Took a minute or two to get to the second I was laughing so hard.
The opposite of the snowmen in Calvin and Hobbes, really. Those were epic.
“For just pennies a day, you can help neglected and malnourished snowmen, like Slushie here, find a caring home, far from the sun and close to a loving child. Call now.”
They’re not such bad snowmen, really. All they need is a little love!
*No snowmen were harmed in the making of this comic. Some children were though.

I almost spewed my morning coffee at the S/M refferance… zomgwtfbbqroflamo!
I died, plain and simply died with the reference.
You had a loyal follower Adam. Remember us.
Not Sarah McLachlan ROFLMAO!
Here in the south… a half inch of snow on top of 4 inches of dead leaves makes for especially horrible snow-urchins… er snowmen.
You got to make snowmen? In NYC, there’s snow for about 2 hours, and then it quickly turns to slush. I mean, we can make Calvin slushballs, but not much else.
I started making snowwomen. I thought it was sexist that we only ever make snowmen.
Pure gold! I’m nearly always amused by your comic, frequently laugh, and on occasion even howl with laughter. But today, when I hit the last panel I laughed for a full 5 minutes. I know for certain I’m going to break out in chuckles all day when I remember today’s strip. “In a commercial with a Sarah McLachlan song”… BRILLIANT!!!
Excellent work. I SALUTE you, sir!!!
Thanks! I was pretty happy with that last panel.
Oh man, I feel your pain! Those Sarah McLachlan commercials are incredible. But I do like building snowmen
Being told to make the snowmen in the BACK yard must leave something kind of mental scar on a budding sculpter. A cold feeling inside, like a soggy knit mitten, freezing tiny fingers numb and then hurting them.
Dude! My brother and I started a tradition as kids to make “Oatmeal”s instead of “Frosty”s, because we hated Frosty, feeling like Oatmeal was some rejected alternate snowman. (If you remember the animated special, they rejected the green-hat-kid’s suggestion for the name.) We liked it, and so began annually constructing the most lumpy, misshapen snow piles we could. We even made our own complete knock-off carol, and still uphold the tradition today.
♪ Oooatmeal the snowman, was a lumpy pile of snow…he shoulda been first but the kids said no, and then Frosty stole his gig… ♪
I know how you feel. My snowmen, at least the few I’ve ever made, are always horrifically mishapen, and always seem to pick up a coating of mud and leaves as they get rolled around the garden.
There’s a “frost bite my ass” joke somewhere in here
Holy smeg, I’m listening to that song right now…
Sarah McLachlan… Sigh; she’s such a good singer. Arnold Rimmer, not so great.
Look, it’s a frozen cloud turd!
