From your 24/7 rolling news service...This just in

Snow news.
A woman dialled emergency services today after  thieves made off with her snowman.
She had given him pound coins for eyes and teaspoons for arms ( hmmm, teaspoons?) and the brigands made off with those too.

Listen here to the audio of her frantic call for help.
"There's been a theft from outside my house." She said.
"I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a fag and he's gone."
When she was asked who had gone, the woman replied: "My snowman. I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about, he'd be safe."
She was then asked whether it was an ornament, and answered: "No, a snowman made of snow, I made him myself. 
It ain't a nice road but at the end of the day, you don't expect someone to nick your snowman, you know what I mean?"

The police did not really know what madam meant and were not amused.

"I went outside for a fag and he's gone"


  1. I laughed when I heard about this too.

    We've been enjoying the lovely snow too...except when the boiler outlet pipe froze up! :)

  2. I don't know if I have ever commented on here, but I have to tell you that in the midst of writing lectures for this week (I teach college), this was just the laugh that I needed. Thank you!
