View Full Version : SNOWMEN AND BIRD HOUSES
11-19-2001, 11:18 AM
My wife just sent me out to buy more Christmas decorations, and I noticed that most of the snowman decorations show Frosty holding a bird house on a long stick. Why? Is there some connection between snowmen and bird houses that I'm not aware of? I thought this might just be the artistic license of one Frosty decoration maker, but MOST of the Frosty stuff had these damn bird houses....

... and so, of course, after I go through all of that to prove to you that you're just hallucinating, it's actually a broom, I'm upstairs in the Reading Room just now, browsing through last Sunday's K-Mart flier, and there on page 5, is a snowman gift tchotchke, and he's holding a wee birdhouse on the end of a stick.
I have no clue what the idea is supposed to be. All I can guess is that a birdhouse is probably a lot easier to manufacture than a broom, being just a cutout sort of vaguely triangular shape. Or maybe it's just that some enterprising graphics designer thought it up, and now EVERYBODY'S doing it.
I agree, it makes no sense.

ok, lets' think about this.
Where would you find a snowman?
yes, that's right, oursite in your yard.
what else might you find in your yard?
A fence, a tree, maybe a birdhouse?????
just a thought
sorry about the sarcasm, I work in retail, this time of year really takes it out of ya.

When would you find a snowman outside? In the winter.
When do birds nest? In the spring.
There's not much overlap.
Someone wasn't thinking clearly when they thought this idea up.
