B. O. L. O.

42-foot-tall inflatable snowman stolen in Tyler | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle: "TYLER, Texas — 'Frosty' the snowman has been swiped.

The 42-foot-tall inflatable holiday decoration is missing from a tree farm in Tyler.

Officials at Dixon Farms say Frosty, worth about $10,000, was last seen Friday night.

So far no arrests.

Lot owner Royce Wisenbaker believes Frosty was hoisted over a fence.

A $1,000 reward has been posted for the safe return of the towering decoration.

Frosty is described as a white male, sporting a red hat and scarf, with a pipe in his mouth."

Perhaps he's just out for a stroll, maybe to get a cup of cocoa to enjoy with his pipe.

"worth about $10,000" seems to be a mis-statement when they're only offering a $1,000 reward for his return--that's worth about a $1,000 in my book.

As they said on FARK.com, if you can tell a snowman is male, you've put the carrot in the wrong place.

Another global warming tragedy, I'll bet.
