The giant 9-foot snowman Cody Lutz and his fiancee built in their Petersburg, Kentucky front yard gave some local hooligan what would become the worst idea of his life. Why not just ram a car right into the snowman, plowing all of their hard work into the ground? Wouldn’t that be hilarious?
Yes, as it turns out…but not for the reason the prankster thought.
This is a big dose of Karma https://t.co/RMlVF488AM

What the driver didn’t know was that the giant snowman’s structural support was provided by a massive tree stump in its bottom layer.
Sometime during the night of January 13, a prankster tried to run Frosty down, only to get a strong helping of instant karma.
This is Petersburg for you. What they didn’t count on, is the massive stump in the center. Life is hard, but it’s much…
Lutz summed things up pretty well in his Facebook post:
“This is Petersburg for you. What they didn’t count on, is the massive stump in the center. Life is hard, but it’s much harder when you’re stupid.”
Lutz also laughed to Fox 19:
“Instant Karma! It’s hilarious! You know, what goes around comes around, in good ways and bad ways. So, I guess everyone learns a valuable lesson here from Frosty.”
Twitter couldn’t help but snicker at the prankster’s misfortune.

The driver was probably hoping for a good laugh, but it seems the shoe is on the other foot this time.

Definitely not a great look for the driver…

People who run over snowmen don’t seem to be the brightest batch.
Years ago someone ran over a kids’ snowman in my neighborhood. I looked closer… and saw the imprint of their license plate in the bottom ball. Oops.

You have be a really low life to wanna run over a snowman

Twitter got a big collective laugh out of Lutz’s picture of the snowy aftermath.

“The snowman is still smiling.”
I disagree. That’s a smirk if I ever saw one.

Some others couldn’t wait to try making a giant snowman of their own:

Can @Twitter give me an option to like this more than just "like"?

One can only imagine the little “souvenir” the driver now has of his exploits.
Ha, Ha! I want to see the front of the vehicle!

Remember: never mess with Frosty.
