Saga of Bus Mowing Down Snowman
A HAPLESS bus driver in the US has resigned after his bus was videoed colliding with a 1.2 metre snowman standing in the road.
The hit-and-run was captured in the University of Illinois campus and posted on YouTube on Dec 4, along with the title "Insane Bus Driver Brutally Murders Snowman."
In the video clip, a car carefully swerves the snow-clad obstacle on the icy road, whereas the public transit bus veers onto the wrong side of the road and annihilates the unwanted object. The video has been watched more than 66,000 times since its release, and the number of hits is likely to rise.
According to Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District spokeswoman Jan Kijowski, it is highly likely that the driver has quit after his deed became known.
After the video had been posted and spread on the website, it stirred a controversy over who is responsible -- the bus driver or the person who deliberately made a snowman on the road.
The driver said he had seen two cars almost crash trying to avoid the icy impediment, and decided to get rid of it. Amid the hot debate, more than 800 Facebook users insisted that the bus driver be restored to his former position.
The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
No one likes shoveling snow, but at one Marquette County motel, they've found a way to make it fun for everyone.
At the Marquette Motor Lodge in Harvey, residents have pitched in to create a giant snowman out of the snow from the motel's parking lot.
The snowman stands around 25 feet tall and is drawing a lot of attention.
"We've had people that look like travellers, out of state plates, doing laps around, taking pictures and stuff," said Michael Guenther, a snowman builder. "We're hoping that the kids will really enjoy it, that's the big thing. Maybe the kids will come out and check it out, you know, a little holiday drive, and that would be great."
It took several weeks to build and should be completed Wednesday complete with eyes that light up. Those creating this monster plan on making an even bigger snowman next year.
A woman who dialled 999 to report the theft of a snowman from outside her home has been branded "completely irresponsible" by Kent Police.
The force said the woman, from Chatham, thought the incident required their involvement because she used pound coins for eyes and teaspoons for arms.
The force said the call was made at the same time as operators fielded thousands of other phone calls about the heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures in the county.
When she was asked who had gone, the woman replied: "My snowman. I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about, he'd be safe."
She was then asked whether it was an ornament, and answered: "No, a snowman made of snow, I made him myself. It ain't a nice road but at the end of the day, you don't expect someone to nick your snowman, you know what I mean?"
The operator then told her she had rung an emergency line and she should not be calling it to report the theft of a snowman.
Chief Inspector Simon Black Kent Police said: "This call could have cost someone's life if there was a genuine emergency and they couldn't get through. It was completely irresponsible. We have spoken to her and advised her what is a 999 call, and this clearly was not."
A snowman has celery sticking out of one ear, lettuce out of the other, and a zucchini up his nose..

Christmas Tale: Santa Get's a Parking Ticket
In England a jobsworth was at work in Nottingham where Santa got a parking ticket, a warden booked him after his sleigh stopped on yellow lines. Richard Walters, pictured left, dressed in a Father Christmas costume had towed the sleigh behind his Land Rover to a street in Nottingham where the Round Table was making a charity collection and as he unhitched it and pushed it on to the pavement the warden struck.
Furious Richard, 38, exploded, 'It's ridiculous. We are raising money for a good cause at Christmas. I will be appealing.'
An Amusing Snow Story From Germany
A seven-year-old boy was stopped by police in northern Germany while trying to plough snow with a front loader he borrowed from his parents' business, authorities have told Will and Guy. Officers on patrol found the boy atop the 3.5-meter-tall [11.5-foot-tall] excavator after he had cleared the street in the town of Reinfeld and was driving back to the parking lot. The child noticed the police car behind him and stopped immediately.
'He opened the door, got out and admitted immediately that he did not have a driving licence,' the police report said. When asked why he had begun ploughing, he said his father had complained about the state of the roads. He saw the key in the ignition of the vehicle and set off.
Police retrieved the key to the loader from the child and returned it, and the boy, to his mother.
