NO ONE is quite sure what a man was trying to prove by building a ridiculously large and detailed snowman.
After nine hours of toil in his garden, marketing manager Martin Bishop created a complicated snow sculpture for no obvious reason other than wanting to show off.
Girlfriend Nikki Hollis said: “We were making a little snowman but Martin took over and kept making it bigger. He had that crazed, competitive look in his eyes he gets on charity fun runs.
“I soon lost interest, but hours later he’d built a surprisingly well-crafted snowman with eyes, ears and even an adam’s apple. With all that facial detail it looks weirdly like a police photofit of an armed robber.
“I know Martin likes to be best at everything but I think putting it on Facebook with the caption ‘I am the king of the snowmen, bitches!’ was a bit excessive.”
Bishop said: “It was totally just a bit of fun but frankly it pisses on other snowmen. Next door’s is barely two feet tall with wonky eyes, so try a bit harder next time, you five-year-old twat.”
