3/16/2005: Snowmen mob Moscow



Thanks xoB. Apparently every year Moscow clown Vyacheslav Polunin puts on a "Snow Show" at Moscow’s Vakhtangov Theater, with mimes and clowns. This year they decided to establish dozens of snowmen on Moscow's Arbat Street as a prelude, and set up a new requirement for his clown college (full story):

Quote:
Every student in the Academy of Fools — or anyone who wants to join this “academy” - must take a final exam in January… by making a snowman.

In case the weather turns unpredictable, organizers set up a truck-full of snow for anyone wishing to pitch in.

The clown, meanwhile, expects that by the end of the month, there should be about a thousand snowmen in central Moscow.


One of them is a robot...

They all appear to have different personas like real pedestrians so don't get between the Crips and the Bloods.

That first picture is awesome. Reminds me of some of the snowmen Calvin used to make.
Like this one:
Late for work

Sure there is... just do this!

Here's the recipie:

When you see the image you like, right click and choose view image, then use the resulting url as the link. Voila!

Edit'OH!!

Our links are identical, you clearly already know this recipie, then why did it work for me, and not you? I think because I followed your second link and that cached it for my link. Sorry.

i still have all my old Calvin and Hobbes books. i bought each one as soon as it was released. i look forward to my son giggling at calvin, instead of acting like calvin.
