But, my friends, there is an evil side to these pure-as-the-driven-snow beings.
And I'm not even talking about trumped-up Hollywood cold-blooded killers such as Jack Frost, or wicked legendary creatures like the Abominable Snowman.
No, these are small, smiling, sweet snowman who look like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.
(Which it probably wouldn't, actually, since snowman are about as cold as a refrigerator.)
These disturbing thoughts entered our minds while visiting my mom this weekend. Mom has always loved snowmen, and she has a charming display of little carrot-nosed figurines on a bookshelf set up for Christmas.
They're very cute.
But on closer inspection...
If a snowman is made out of rolled-up snow...essentially, giant snowballs...then isn't a snowball...a BABY SNOWPERSON?
Ergo, is it not wrong for a snowman to be throwing baby snow-beings?
Would it throw them at people? at cars? Does this mean the benignly smiling snowman is really just about as nasty as those trees in The Wizard of Oz who throw their own apples at Dorothy and the Scarecrow?
