Snowmen

Jabba the Snowman!

Jabba the Snowman, was a creepy slimy soul,
with a greasy tongue and a dripping nose,
and two eyes as black as coal,
Jabba the Snowman is a fairy tale they say,
He was made of snow but the Jawas know
how he ruined their lives one day,
There must have been some force left in that
old Jedi they found.
For when they slipped it in Jabba’s mouth
he began to slither around.
Oh Jabba the Snowman
was alive as he could be,
and the Sandpeople screamed
as he laughed and flayed,
all the little ones he could see.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Jabba go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of . . . sand

Tis’ the season…for superhero snowmen??  Apparently Matthew Connor from Cheshire, England thinks so.  He recently compiled these epic Iron Man and Spiderman  snowmen.  He sent some pics of his masterpieces, which he buit in his own backyard for his 5-year-old son to ComicAlliance to share with the rest of us.  Gotta love that giving spirit!

Here’s what Connor had to say about the project,

Inspired by my 5 year old son’s love for the Marvel Alliance characters, I made them for him. We have Spider-Man and Iron Man costumes for him, the Marvel Ultimate Alliance game for Xbox we even have the bath characters, all twelve of them, which we fight with every bath time.

The snowmen were made December 1st and 2nd 2010, in our back garden at home, in some of the lowest temperatures seen in the UK for a long time, but worth every frozen finger. Unfortunately the snow has turned to ice otherwise there might have been a Silver Surfer to send you, that’s the next on the list if we have anymore snow…”

This most definitely sounds like a super cold but super fun time!  I now feel inspired to try my hand at a superhero snowman if the snow isn’t yellow or plowed away before I get to it, maybe Batman?  Check out photos after the jump!
