When a driver decided to destroy a giant snowman in Petersburg, Ky., on Monday, the culprit got a rude awakening. Instead of poor Frosty being murdered, the snowman got its revenge, since its base was a giant tree trunk in the yard of Cory Lutz.
Lutz was hosting his fiancée, Lucy, and her sister, Laura, who were visiting from Mississippi this weekend when Lucy experienced the “biggest snowfall she’s ever seen.” Naturally, Lutz wanted to make it special for the visiting women.
Lutz told FOX 8 that the three of them spent the weekend sledding, engaging in snowball fights and even canoeing. But no winter wonderland of a weekend would be complete without building a snowman.
As three grown adults are wont to do, they set out to build a towering snowman. They used a large stump in Lutz’s front yard for the base of the 9-foot-tall Frosty.
Lutz thought everyone in his neighborhood would love Frosty, and with its top hat and charming smile, how could you not? But apparently, there was at least one nefarious foe.
Lutz came home on Monday to find a set of tire tracks in his yard leading directly to the snowman. The trunk was exposed, and in the snow was not a snow angel but the imprint of the culprit’s bumper.
“Apparently, Frosty had been handing out life lessons to surprised 4×4 vandals. You reap what you sow! Still standing and still smiling — he certainly had the last laugh!” Lutz said.
