"Naked" Snow Woman Prompts Police Action
A snow woman described as “nude” is getting the cold shoulder from Rahway, New Jersey residents. The family who carved Venus de Milo in last week's snow outside their home on Colonia Boulevard has been asked to cover up her “nude” form.
Following an anonymous complaint, Maria Conneran and her family received a visit from police who politely asked them to cover the snow woman’s assets. The Associated Press reports that they complied and dressed her in a green bikini top and blue sarong before she began to melt in the warmer weather.
Interestingly, most three-balled snowmen are clad in nothing but a top hat, but their “nudity” does not seem to produce the same reaction. Similarly, pets run around the neighbourhood flaunting their nude bodies without incident, but this carved Venus is apparently too sexy for her snow.
This censorship of snow art comes as the country celebrates its second annual America’s Sexuality Day to promote freedom of speech and sexual expression.
