Lisa (from Life of an El Paso Woman) and I are competing for the Best Snowman. It’s a match between Texas and New Mexico, and you can find her entry (Chico Jr.) here:

Albuquerque didn’t get as much snow as El Paso, and while I tried to make balls out of the snow, they wouldn’t stick together. I’m like, is this how snow is supposed to behave? I don’t think so. Obviously, here in New Mexico, we have alien snow. (Roswell, New Mexico is a famous alien site.)

So, I had to use my imagination.  First, I tried to draw a snowman:

Obviously, I can’t draw. Then I tried to use props:

Does that look like a snowman to you? Okay, maybe not…

See, my snowman is very, very tired (because insomnia), so he’s laying down…

…and smoking some leaf. (Lucky dude.)

And here is Snowgirl:

She’s getting ready to make banana bread. And here she is celebrating bud (wouldn’t it be cool if our money had bud leaves on it?):

And here’s the Trump Snowman:

He’s hiding because he knows everyone hates him.

Oh no, it looks like the Trump Snowman melted. Must be because he doesn’t have any real balls. 🙂

Here’s the sun, trying to escape the clouds:

Since the Snowman Challenge was my idea, I believe that qualifies me as the one and only judge of this contest. And I’ve already decided that Chico Jr. is the winner.  Congratulations, Lisa! 😀

  1. That looks like a snow penguin to me 🙂 But points for making the first horizontal snowman I’ve ever seen. In NY snowmen are fired for laying down on the job.

    Light, powdery snow is useless for making snowmen or snowballs. If you threw a powder ball at Trump, it would disintegrate in the air before it hit that chipmunk on his head. Of course, firmer snowballs might fail to penetrate Trump’s reality distortion field as well, but that is what iceballs were made for 🙂
