Parody Facebook page uses lewd snowmen to implore residents to ‘stop creating sexually suggestive snow people’
According to the City of Winnipeg Complaints Department on Facebook, a fictional state agency, people are making sexually explicit snow sculptures -- as opposed to normal ones with scarves, caps and carrot noses
Residents of Manitoba, Canada, are purportedly having fun with snow. But not in a traditional way. According to the City of Winnipeg Complaints Department on Facebook, a fictional state agency, people are making sexually explicit snow sculptures -- as opposed to normal ones with scarves, caps, and carrot noses.
The most recent complaint from The City of Winnipeg Complaints Department page on Facebook is an all-caps plea. “PLEASE STOP MAKING SEXUALLY SUGGESTIVE SNOW SCULPTURES AT CITY HALL!!” reads a February 19 post on the page. “WE HAVE CAMERA FOOTAGE OF THE PERSONS INVOLVED AND POLICE WILL BE INVESTIGATING!!” It was accompanied by a photo of a snow-sculpture -- of what appears to be a snowperson fellating another seated snowperson, on a bench near Winnipeg’s City Hall.
A January 31 post says, “If anyone has information on the individual pictured below please contact us immediately via call or text: 1-204-800-8174. One of our Complaints Department Clerks discovered her vehicle to have this disgusting 'snow sculpture' created on it sometime during the lunch-hour. Needless to say, we are shocked and saddened this vandalism happened to one of our employees.”
This post came with two photos. One of a really distorted and grainy human figure in a hood. And the other of a gigantic penis fashioned from snow on a car. Although like many have pointed out, the photo of the car is definitely an old one. It appeared on the internet as early as 2013 at least and became a meme that has been used time and again.
There’s another post of a snowman apparently engaged in masturbation. “The City of Winnipeg would like to remind residents to please stop creating sexually suggestive snow people. Especially around schools! City crews have dismantled DOZENS around the city,” the page announced on January 19. “This photo was sent to us by Karen Moyle at Kildonan Park. We have blurred the phallic object in question.”
But it’s not just sexualized snow persons who have been the page’s concern. A post from February 18 says, “An investigation is underway after a makeshift meth-making tent was dismantled in the parking lot across from Mayor Brian Bowman's home this afternoon. Stay tuned for further updates.” Another post shared a photo of the mayor's car keys, allegedly lost by his driver.
Most of the group’s followers appear to be in on the joke. Though some of them do appear to believe this as real -- judging by their comments on the posts. But mostly, everyone seems to be having a laugh.
Back in January, a Twitter user shared a video purportedly taken in Madrid, Spain, which had its biggest snowfall in 61 years in early January. There, someone had sculpted snow into two people having sex on the hood of a car. "Madrid, Spain covered in snow for the first time in 61 years and people are getting creative," the poster wrote.
