Stay Classy, Snow Sculptors

Frosty is rolling in his grave right now.

In a time-honored tradition, children and adults alike are known to venture out into the cold upon the first big snowfall of the year and make a snowman. The three bulbous balls of ice topped with a hat, coal for eyes and a carrot for a nose are as iconic a symbol of winter as anything else. But there's a home on the Westside of Bend that sports a different sort of snow sculpture - two round balls next to a cylindrical tower. Yeah, it was a phallus and it's been there for about a week now. Who really wants a big set of nards on their front lawn? It's been a weird year for snow sculpting, especially up in Idaho where a man made a snowman of a KKK member holding a noose. Outraged neighbors, with the help of police, had the man topple the ridiculous sculpture, but still... WTF? Frosty is rolling in his grave right now.
