Someone Tried to Run Over a Snowman . . . Not Realizing It Was Built Over a Tree Stump

Sometimes if you decide to be a total jackass, karma isn’t going to wait to teach you a lesson.

There’s a guy named Cory Lutz in Petersburg, Kentucky, and over the weekend, he and his fiancée and her sister built a big snowman in the yard.

Well . . . apparently, on Monday, someone was driving by, saw the snowman, and decided to RUN IT OVER.  But what that person didn’t realize was . . . the snowman was built over a big TREE STUMP.

So when Cory got home, he saw the tire tracks leading up to the snowman . . . and a bumper-shaped dent in the snow against the stump.

Which means that somewhere in his town, there’s a person with a jacked up bumper . . . all from randomly trying to destroy a stranger’s snowman.


The Latest Internet Challenge: Defend Your Favorite Villain

 Here’s an Internet challenge that won’t KILL YOU:  Defend your favorite villain.  People are doing it on Reddit right now.  Here are a few examples:

2.  The Trix Rabbit:  “All he wanted was a bowl of cereal and those kids never offered him some, so he turned to a life of crime thieving the cereal.  Tragic.”

3.  Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast”:  “In any other Disney movie, he would be the hero.  He hits almost all the hero checkpoints.  Handsome?  Check.  Liking the weird girl instead of his basic fan girls?  Check.  Trying to rescue the girl from a literal monster?  Check.”

4.  Benny the landlord in “Rent”:  “He just wanted them to pay their rent.  LAST YEAR’S RENT.  He was very forgiving to let it go on that long!”
