Frightening Frosty Follow Up

I'll start by saying how welcome Tom Canel's comments were on the previous "Frosty" post. However, new information has come to light and it's not pretty. The beloved snowindividual has been discovered, tarred and 'feathered' (with some unknown kind of feather-like substance) and OH MY GOD! nailed to a door. His carroty nose is now irreversibly flattened, his hat sits squarely on his head but the two-eyes-made-out-of-coal are still there. (Frosty might be better off not seeing what has befallen him). Frosty's grin is a bit of a rictus-like thing. You know he can't be smiling. This, my friends, is not a 'jolly, happy soul'.The scarf is now strangulation-red and there are body parts (like the broom) missing. As Jim Calandrillo would say: "What a world, what a world!"

Oh! This is the worst yet!
The sinister element predominates.
Nailed to a door, oh my!
Someone please verify if feathers are real or fake.
If real, then we are staring at one of the worst plucking crimes in the history of making Christmas merry.
Right you are, my friend, THAT is no smile. If you look closely, you'll notice the mouth is a fish hook bent into a smile, meant to torture Frosty in the most mean spirited manner, and is the cruelst thing EVER done to the archtypical snowman. It's making me think 2012 just might be the end.
A moment of silence here.
Thank you.
