Stolen snowman prompts emergency call

By Washington Post Editors

A woman in the UK called for emergency assistance after a snowman was stolen from her front yard, according to this story:

Police said she thought it demanded their involvement because she had used pound coins for the eyes and teaspoons for the arms.
The woman, from Chatham, Kent, has been "spoken to"' by officers to advise her about what constitutes a real emergency.

Read the full story on the Telegraph web site.
