I dunno, what do you guys think? If I woke up and saw this in my neighbors’ yard, I would probably be packing the kids into the car to get the hell out of Dodge. Florida does not ever get enough snow to make a snowman. If the folks across the street had that much snow, we’d be running for our lives.
But . . . if I lived somewhere, in this case, New Jersey, I’d be might impressed that my neighbors had the good taste to make a Venus de Milo rather than, I don’t know, a nasty Dolly Parton (for the record, I love Dolly Parton but she does lend herself to some serious snow-making endeavors) type of snowman. I cannot, however, imagine calling city officials and complaining!
The Venus-crafters complied with city officials and covered Venus. You tell me, I think she looks much better nekkid. The clothing totally changes the proportions of her armless little body. Makes you think, doesn’t it? Skip the Spanx and go au naturel? Let nature’s lines fall where they’re supposed to rather than impose more lines with clothing?
That said, there will be no time soon that I’ll become a clothing optional person. I’m just thinking aloud. If you want the feeling of nekkid, get some overalls and a tank top. Comfy and you won’t get a nasty sunburn and your neighbors won’t call the police when you head out to collect your mail.
I’m curious – what would you do if you woke up to a snow-Venus across the street?
1) Call the police?
2) Congratulate the neighbors on a job well-done?
3) Say nothing but take a picture to email to your friends?
4) Get some fall leaves, currently being pressed in your unabridged dictionary and cover Venus’ naught bits?
5) Take action and knock Venus down with a pick axe?
