Snowballing Violence

Geez, I guess snowball fights can be nasty, too.

The Burlington Free Press reports today that two people got into a nasty fight in the Vermont town of Jay over a thrown snowball.

Play nice, boys. Apparently, a weekend snowball fight in Jay, Vermont got out of hand.


One guy threw a snowball at a car on a pretty remote stretch of Route 242. The guy driving the car stopped, and they battled it out with fists.

Both face charges.

C’mon guys. There’s plenty of snow. Build a couple snow forts, heave snowballs at each other from your respective forts and blow off steam that way. You know, like kids do.

Aren’t snowball fights supposed to be fun? Well, spring is coming. So maybe we’ll get through the rest of winter without violence.

    Yeah, the article doesn’t mention Denis’ name, but I’m SURE he was involved somehow.

    I never liked to be hit with a snowball, I never thought it was funny, I always thought it was mean. Cars cost a lot of money and people don’t like snowballs thrown at them either.

    M28 is correct, of course, and reading the link you find out, natch, that it was 2 Massh*les. Big surprise!

    When I starting reading this I thought it was a joke since Jay is such a sleepy little town it is hardly ever in the news. Probably all this snow is driving some people mad.
