For C&H Fans...

I brave the wilds of HuffPo for you...

These Disturbingly Creative Snowmen Would Make Calvin And Hobbes Proud
Bill Watterson's classic comic strip always took an extra sharp turn for the weird around the season's first snowfall. And although there hasn't been a new "Calvin and Hobbes" printed in the last twenty or so years, Calvin's mischievous spirit has quite clearly lived on.

Without further ado, here are some of the strangest snowmen to grace the cold, white earth.
My favorite? Why, it's got to be this one, of course:


Heh. A snow AT-AT. That's one lucky kid right there - I'll bet it took quite a bit of time to create all the tiny snow X-wing fighters needed to round up one snow AT-AT... Some of the snowmen creations are obvious recreations of some of the Watterson originals. Others are riffs on the subject; still more are fresh material (i.e. the snow outhouse - well done!).

Why, yes, I *did* hear that the Northeast is going to get socked with snow, why do you ask?

That is all.

When I was about twelve, my friends and I recreated in 3-D our favorite reclining pose Playboy pinup, with snow limbs covering the essential bits.

My father was not amused, even when we told him it was "art".
