I didnt assign it a gender, its not my place to.. I'm not god. I like my snow 'men' to be liberated & choose whichever gender, if any, that they want to be.
Whenever I tried to give it a smile it ended up looking evil, and I didnt want an evil little face staring at me whenever I looked out of the window!

I looked at that picture literally 2 minutes ago! Im trawling through google to find inspiration for my next masterpiece


*Edit - Ive come up with the best idea ever, Im making Jedward into snowmen.

Hi, from Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. Main roads clear here, but side roads are no go areas. Worked from home today, couldnt get car out. Phoned my father who is 84 this tea time to check he was ok. He lives 3/4 mile from Cleckheaton across the valley from me.

He told me that this morning he had walked into Cleckheaton, there were no buses. Why you may ask..... well, he had run out of cornflakes (WHAT).
He bought 3 carrier bags of shopping ...just incase, then was surprised there were no taxis. He had to walk up hill then with the bags in thick snow.

What did he have on his feet, 'sensible shoes'... !! You couldnt make it up.

Two day's off work; I love the snow me. My dog wasnt too keen though as he has little legs and i think his balls were getting numb as he basically dragged me back to the house after 20 yards.

British spirit and drive my friend.

Glad he was ok, maybe suggest toast to him next time


But you highlight a good point on people needing help with weather like this.

I remember snow like this in December some 25 years ago, and i think one of the reasons for people not being prepared for it, is the because we have all been told that things are getting warmer, why would you prepare for a cold spell if that's the case? however the alternative science and the one now being looked at more so now as the real science has been warning people of the cold spell coming our way. I fear for some though who are not ready for this, and i fear for the amount of elderly not ready, we need to keep our eye on them and offer help wherever we can.

Well I put it to you that by not placing the aforementioned carrot in its correct spot you have assigned a gender. Female. And how exactly is the poor thing going to choose a gender when its feeble little arms wouldn't be able to pick up a carrot even if it wanted to.

You really haven't thought this through, amateur


I see your predicament about the smile. It's a fine art for sure. But at least you have the power to smash its head in if it looks at you funny, take solace in that.

That picture is amazing, had me in stitches. It's beautifully macabre.

I fell through my pond today. The snow hid how truly thin the ice was, you live and learn


Jedward! May God have mercy on us all......


The irony is that like your snowJedward, the real Jedward are destined to melt away into obscurity...and die.

Just checked the Leicester square streaming webcam and I'm more than certain I spotted the occasional snowflake drifting down but melting on the wet road ... chances are that even London may not escape totally unscathed

Build the whole judging panel!

I really want to make this one. Preferably in my front garden so the young kids next door can see it:

Hehe, sure is fun for us northern country folks to see you guys have some "real" snow sometime.


I agree I hope everyone gets a chance to go outside and play.

I'm in Colorado I love a good snowstorm. If it gets deep don't forget to set out something for the birds. Stay warm & have fun.

The whole panel sounds more like a job for a regular snow man builder.

Its hard for me to pick the snow up long enough to shape anything, it looks like splatted snow balls on a face haha.

That picture is scary, but really really impressive i wonder who made this a married ..... man


If i had enough time i would get creative but i know i will go to far and freeze

But it has no lady parts either! Its arms may be weak, but lets not forget that some snowman never get given arms in the first place, so mine should feel lucky.

I dont know about smashing it in.. I had visions of waking up in the middle of the night to find it sitting right outside my window. Or even worse, in my bedroom trying to attack me with its twiggy little arms. I'd just die of sheer terror before I could do anything!

Haha, unlucky about the pond!.. I will probably suffer the same fate at some point if I keep randomly jumping into piles of snow without considering what may or may not be underneath.

Jedward will take over the world, ITV2 is giving them their own show

Unfortunately, the brilliance of a piece of art is directly proportional to the amount of suffering undertaken to create it. Van Gogh cut his ear off for his art... so a little frostbite is nothing really


*Edit: a possible improvement on the murdering snowman - I could go out in the morning and build the killer one next to other peoples normal, peace loving snowmen

I can't believe you are going out picking up giant ice cubes without gloves or mitts on your hands!

The snow is beautiful....I can say that because it never snows where I am, so it is a treat for me to see videos like yours.

I don't think I would like to be in the snow, though.

I hope you get a wind to blow some of that off the roofs before it gets too heavy.

Are you staying warm enough?
What kind of heat do you use?

I doubt enough snow will fall to collapse buildings. It would take ALOT of snow for that, by which time we'd have bigger issues, like being dead anyway!

Most of us in the UK have Gas central heating, although I augment mine with electric heaters to keep my toes warm as my fancy wooden floor gets bloody cold!

Don't get me wrong I think it's wonderful you have given your snowbeing arms, and lucky, yes.

However, imagine if you had three eyes or a tail. Some might say you were 'lucky' because you had better vision or improved balance. Other might mock you and make you the 'star' of a Channel 4 documentary. All I'm saying is don't be surprised if it's not in one piece tomorrow, snowbeings can get jealous


At least if it attacked you in the night you could come on here first thing in the morning and start a thread on it - Snow Demon - but you better have pictures of the attack or no dice!

Bloody hate that pond! My next door neighbour fell in it once. She only has one arm. She tried to swim her way out but she kept going round in circles. True story


Jedward for the win
