Gorgoth the Snow Demon
My landlord has set up a lighted, vacuum-powered snowman in our front yard who we've named Gorgoth. Gorgoth is enormous and more than a little scary. Easily seven feet tall, he brandishes a huge candy cane triumphantly above its head, smiling, perhaps in celebration of clubbing some innocent passerby. I can imagine his attack... with surprising agility, he springs over the picket fence while singing a holiday ditty with Burl Ives voice.

The first time I saw him, I stood in awe of his sheer mightiness. Now I'm just thankful that he deflates during the day.

Oh, no... he's coming.

Current Mood: spooked
Current Music: Burl Ives, "Holly Jolly Christmas"

Wow. I can't wait to see it...

Just make sure you bring appropriate weaponry. Demon fighting is a messy business.

Hmm, not much I can get through the airport security guards... Does lock de-icer work on giant snow beasts?

"I'm Mister Heat Blister"

Only if you're singing The Heatmiser theme while you're hosing him down.

Um, the scariest thing is that after I replied to this post yesterday I drove by one of my neighbor's houses, and they had what I'm pretty sure is the exact same thing that you described... it looks as if the disproportionately large snowman is about to club someone violently with the candy cane.

That's the one! Sounds like he's manifesting elsewhere besides the Boston suburbs.

Remember the Heat Miser song! And know that he can only take physical form after dark.

Dude, once we have snow, I totally want to come take photographs of it.

A bunch of us (were you there?) saw an Uncle Sam like that over the summer...

Absolutely. You should also get photos of him in the daytime for the whole "Demon slain" schtick.

Paul came over yesterday with his kid, and his first reaction was, "Look Marty, it's a dead snowman!" Everybody I know thinks the setup is weird...

I bet you & Joe put it up, being so into the holiday season as I know you both to be. I think I will have to stop by and take a look for myself.

Ok, you got me... Secretly, we are beginning the cult of Gorgoth the Snow Demon. All that is required to set our plan into motion is a donkey virgin sacrifice draught Spaten Optimator.
