  • Only if the cops want to snap a pic of themselves posing in front of it.
    Was it boobs or a penis?

  • I would guess the latter, since someone in the comments says "it was pretty big" (as opposed to they were pretty big)

  • Eh if it's a repeated occurence it could be seen as harassment (of the people living in the residence) otherwise it was likely just a bunch of idiot teenagers.

  • They should have talked to their neighbors BEFORE they called the police. If you have young children it could easily be something you don't want them to be outside seeing.

  • I was under the impression (from other people on fb who live there) that it was made by the resident LOL

    Well in that case......sheesh did someone get offended and need to police to issue a lecture about the "appropriateness" of images drawn in snow in their own lawn?

  • Was it necessary for the police to come? No, probably not. But was it necessary for him to build such a thing in his front yard? Probably not. If he had put it in the backyard, more than likely nobody would be upset by it. While I would find a well-hung snowman hilarious, I wouldn't want to have to look at it every day until the snow melted.
