OH, THE SNOWMANITY!

It snowed here a few days ago. Since then the weather has been warmer so most of the white stuff is gone. Over the weekend I took a walk across the park to take some artsy photos of things like--

the neutral colors of winter ice and…

frost on the empty playground equipment. Then I came across this--

--the remains of a dead snowman.

And, nearby, another corpse! The only forensic knowledge I have is from all those crime scene television shows so I could only guess that the deceased succumbed to solar exposure.


Not far away I discovered a sight of horrific carnage.

Such bloodshed and slaughter I have never seen!
The head was torn off and the body was impaled with a sharp stick.

I considered notifying the authorities. But I have also learned from the television that reporting a crime leads to being dragged down to the police station where the witness is shut up in a little gray room. Then he is viciously questioned until at last he confesses to a felony without even an attorney present.

So I went on my way. I saw nothing. In fact, I was never there.

Update: for the rest of the story go here.

So glad you decided to walk...away...the whole good cop bad cop thing can really make you question reality thus leading to confession of something you 'supposedly' did not do - the tricky DNA collection from the cup of joe that they give you- should be illegal, not because it is devious but because it is bad coffee. I , too, know these things - we have a TV...Um, I hope that you covered your tracks...Though this looks like the perfect crime- evidence melted, they have their ways- they will find you- they have psychics on the payroll. (saw it on TV)They know who you are, hiding behind that camera...that sweet exterior...just know this, if you are caught I will bail you out of snoman jail. I will...

I'm glad you left the crime scene forthwith. Only bad things could come from hanging around.
