Christmas Funny: Snowmen Protest Global Warming

"Braving balmy temperatures and sunny skies, millions of scarfless snowmen and snowwomen gathered in cities across the world Tuesday to raise public awareness about the heavy toll global warming is taking on their health and well-being," reports The Onion.

"Joe Centigrade, president of the Advocates For Beings Of Frozen Precipitation, spoke at a mass rally Tuesday on Washington's National Mall"

"'The unseasonably warm winters of the recent past are a clear indication of a real environmental threat to humans and their frozen simulacra,' said Centigrade, his coals arranged in a frowning pattern. 'As snowmen and snowwomen, we accept the inevitability of melting, but the actions of man are causing us to evaporate well before our time.'"
