seeing as how this is my first post on here... and i really don't have an intro into the whole "this is my blog" thing, i'll just get on with what i've been thinking the past few days.
I call this "An Examination of a Popular Christmas Song."
Frosty the Snowman. The lovable snowman we all fell in love with as children, hoping that our snowmen would come to life and sing and dance with us. but upon hearing this song about 5 billion times at the WeggyWorld, i have found some disturbing things about this so called snowman. Apparently, he was a jolly, happy soul... i think not upon further review.
"Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand, running here and there all around the square, saying catch me if you can." First of all, why does he have a broomstick in his hand... this seems a little too "i'm going to beat you with this broomstick"ish. Maybe if it was "with a broom in his hand" it would be harmless. i think not. Secondly, he was running here and there saying catch me if you can. all this with a broomstick. maybe he's running from the cops...wait... he is!
"He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop, and he only paused a moment when he heard him holler stop!" so he was running until the cop said stop. So not only is he a thug with a broomstick... he's a fugitive. yay frosty.
Then frosty gets out the jam enough to address the kids once more...
"But he waved goodbye, saying don't you cry, I'll be back again some day."
Sounds an awful like the "i'll call you" line that guys give an ugly girl after a heavy night of drinking. (walk of shame anyone?) But seriously... you think frosty ever came back? you never hear about it...
So in conclusion, frosty is a thug, fugitive, and a liar. Great morals for a kid.
I'm not even going to start with the whole "thumpity thump thump" part. Snow does not make a thump sound.
More analysis of christmas songs to come...
