Al Gore and Nano-Frosty

These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest... that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.” -- Al Gore

"Five out of four people have trouble with fractions." -- Steven Wright

"Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical." -- Yogi Berra

The good news is, it doesn't take very much polar ice cap to make The World's Smallest Snowman.

With an atomic force microscope
and a button deposited platinum nose
and two eyes made out of focused ion beam coals


  1. Awesome. Even if we somehow catch up with the Medieval Warm Period, we'll still have enough cold stuff to make snowpersons.

  2. Damn, RK with all this global warming, you're still able to be politically correct... After all why should it be called
    a "snowman",after all 90% of snowmen are half "snowwomen"... This coming from a 59 year old who has only seen snow once in his life...

  3. Appears there is a 100% chance Algore's data is not scientifically based

  4. I want my old light bulbs back; any chance? Even if we prove Al Gore's totally WRONG?! I can't even get 150 watt regular bulbs here anymore in LA!!

  5. RK- I want a palm tree in my front yard but I'm too lazy to move. Please people. Continue to exhale at a prodicious clip.
    Born Again- The women of the species are snow angels.
    Chuck- AFLACK! (That's "duck" for "I agree")
    Z- There's got to be a black market for old style light bulbs for those of us with mercury aversion.
