It was truly, epically terrible. We were so proud! Reply chris on February 7, 2013 at 12:21 am Great first panel! Took a minute or two to get to the second I was laughing so hard. Reply BugFanNo1Million on February 7, 2013 at 1:08 am The opposite of the snowmen in Calvin and Hobbes, really. Those were epic. Reply Kotsuso on February 7, 2013 at 2:22 am “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.” Reply tymime on February 7, 2013 at 3:50 am They’re not such bad snowmen, really. All they need is a little love! Reply B*ggled on February 7, 2013 at 5:50 am *No snowmen were harmed in the making of this comic. Some children were though. *Five time Ultimate Snowman Contest winner denies use of artificial snow. “I only use the natural, league approved snow and organic carrots!” -Yukon Cornelius * (20 years later) “I ain’t training ya kid! I’m all washed up and besides, ever since I was framed by Hermey, I’ve been the laughing stock of the North Pole! You’re better off without me….” -Yukon Cornelius Reply Armoless on February 7, 2013 at 6:56 am I almost spewed my morning coffee at the S/M refferance… zomgwtfbbqroflamo! Reply Random on February 7, 2013 at 7:16 am I died, plain and simply died with the reference. You had a loyal follower Adam. Remember us.

Reply Wingspin on February 7, 2013 at 7:42 am 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. Reply Leshka on February 7, 2013 at 7:47 am 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. Reply R. E. Hunter on February 7, 2013 at 8:32 am I started making snowwomen. I thought it was sexist that we only ever make snowmen. Reply majdan on February 7, 2013 at 8:44 am 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!!! Reply Adam on February 7, 2013 at 10:05 pm Thanks! I was pretty happy with that last panel. Reply Brad Fitzpatrick on February 7, 2013 at 10:24 am Oh man, I feel your pain! Those Sarah McLachlan commercials are incredible. But I do like building snowmen Reply Ol' Gui on February 7, 2013 at 5:55 pm 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. Reply Mortal Anonymous on February 7, 2013 at 9:34 pm 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… ♪ Reply Jerden on February 8, 2013 at 3:54 pm 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. Reply Echo Burning on February 9, 2013 at 1:13 am There’s a “frost bite my ass” joke somewhere in here Reply aktnova on February 13, 2013 at 7:42 am Holy smeg, I’m listening to that song right now… Reply Saskfan on November 16, 2013 at 9:22 pm Sarah McLachlan… Sigh; she’s such a good singer. Arnold Rimmer, not so great. Reply tookye on March 1, 2013 at 8:46 pm Look, it’s a frozen cloud turd! Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
