We here at Mano know that it’s a celebratory time of the year – a time where everybody gets drunk, exchanges presents, and wears ridiculous clothing, but in times of joy we also need to ensure our behavior doesn’t get rowdy.
Fresh snowfalls will make people do things. They’ll be more likely to romp in it, pelt people with snowballs, make snow angels, and if the mood strikes them — engage in wildly deviant behavior that the entire neighborhood will frown on. Like recreating And we don’t make gigantic snow-sculptures of male genitalia, as that could be against the law. Like in Lafayette, Indiana, birthplace of Axl Rose. Two snow sculptures were made of male genitalia, which got the town up in arms – and then realized that it was a class A misdemeanor. Which means that the sculptors could spend up to a year in prison if they were charged – unfortunately the ice sculptures were destroyed by an enterprising neighbor after they were tired of looking at ice penises.
We can all learn a lesson from this. Mostly that even during Christmastime, there are slow news days in Lafayette, Indiana. And don’t make snowpenises.
Think of the children. Think about how terrified they’d be.
