REWARD * Amber Alert , sorta


(AP) "Frosty" the snowman has been swiped. The 42-foot-tall inflatable holiday decoration was taken from a tree farm. Officials at Dixon Farms say Frosty, worth about $10,000, was last seen Friday night. So far no arrests. Lot owner Royce Wisenbaker believes Frosty was hoisted over a fence. A $1,000 reward has been posted for the safe return of the towering decoration.

Frosty is described as a white male, sporting a red hat and scarf, with a pipe in his mouth.The Associated Press




This isn't really newsworthy. Or so I'd think. But I have seen it on all the major TV stations, in the papers, on line several places and if you Google it, a couple pages of links come up. (now I am adding one more)

First, 42 feet? Who ever took him can't hide him for long.

Second, Why can't news that really matters get this kind of coverage?

Third, I say everyone start up their "snow-blowers" ... he'll come running *wink*

I think I sighted Frosty last night in a traffic jam. He was being used as HOV lane passenger decoy in a Hummer.

I agree with you about newsworthiness, Nancy. It really isn't important, but folks seem to gravitate to this kind of stuff....

Nancy said...

MaryAlice: LMAO (and I love that pic of you)

Debra: I don't know why that is, but I'm sure it won't ever change. Maybe people like trivial BS for a moment, so they don't have to think of the real issues going on.

Glad to deliver some Trivial BS this morning, lol

I gravitate to the trivial BS too. I barely know anything about the candidates in our upcoming presidential election, the current state of affairs in Iraq, our own domestic policies, etc. But I'm down with Britney Spears finances, Dennis Quaid's lawsuit, and the chicken pox outbreak amongst all the Spice Girls' kids.

What I want to know is how you steal a snowman that large without anyone noticing. Even if you deflate him, you would think someone would have seen it. Odd . . . very odd.

There must have been some magic in that old silk hat he wore...
Frosty the Snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye, sayin' "Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."

That's hysterical. Criminals are dumb, what exactly are they going to do with it? If they use it in their yard, somebody is gonna know. Sheez.

Dude... slow news day. And is that an actual picture? Did I go color blind or is the hat black, not red?

Frosty fits the description of my neighbor Greg.

Things like that happen here. Giant blow up creatures disappear from the top of buildings. I want to know how on earth they do it - I understand why, but how?

Good grief! Well they do say everything is bigger and better out here!
