Stretching Snowmen

Spotted this on Arnold Zwicky's Blog a week or so ago and I couldn't resist sharing.

Zwicky points out that, "human and snowman aren’t really parallel, historically, morphologically, or prosodically", but I still thoroughly enjoyed the analogy even if it was a linguistic stretch.

Oddly related: I just returned from a walk on which I saw a croquet game set up in the snow on a neighbor's front yard. I wonder if they enjoyed their snoquet match?
