Snekaos i L.A.?

It’s time once again to bring the joys of snow to poor inner-city children and city councilpersons:

Last time, Reyes and his staff tried to make their own [snowman], but it turned into a disaster because none of the Southern Californians knew how to build one, said Reyes spokesman Tony Perez.

“We don’t have a lot of experience with the snow,” said Perez, who added that he has never actually seen it fall from the sky.

Sir! If you cannot build a snowman from first principles, you are clearly unfit to run the city. I suggest a sabbatical in Sweden or Minnesota.

    Not “knowing” how to build a snögubba? That’s a hefty blow to any doctrine of innate ideas, for sure. Can such things really be?

    Beg pardon, that’s en snögubbe, två (eller många) snögubbar.

    Mange, mange snemennesker, selvfølgelig!
    But, erm, how does one properly danskify “gubbar”?

    Dunno. “Gubbe” means “old geezer” in Swedish, and is the idiomatic thing to make out of snö. Where are the native informants when you need them?

    Det hedder ’snemand’ på dansk.
