(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*
