Adults Terrified Of 'Frosty The Snowman' Call 911!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A North Carolina man whose one-man parade in a Frosty the Snowman costume yielded four 911 calls said he never meant to frighten anyone.

frostyJeffery Acker, who donned the top section of an inflatable snowman Sunday and strolled through downtown Vanceboro while carrying a 4-foot candy cane, said his walk was meant to inspire holiday spirit, not fear."


Winos like to pick up a few extra bucks during the Christmas season by playing Santa and putting up with obnoxious kids. When you see Santa reach into his pocket at the mall, he`s probably looking for his flask of liquor.

It`s not only little kids who are scared of Jolly St. Nick, when I run into Santa at a mall I give him a wide berth. The typical Santa reeks of alcohol, sweat and vomit.

But Frosty the Snowman is beloved by children and adults, wherever he goes he spreads good tidings and good cheer.

Anybody who is scared of Frosty is in need of therapy, there is nothing menacing or threatening about the loveable Snowman.

Acker wasn`t charged with any crimes, and the police chief said his department had more important things to do than to investigate a sighting of Frosty the Snowman.
