snowman poop

The fourth grade holiday party in December served hot cocoa and sent some home as a favor.  The kids were asked to choose from one of two bags- one marked Naughty and one marked Nice.  Interesting to see who decided to see what was in the Naughty bag.  In the end they got both.  In the Nice bag were packs of cocoa mix with the accompanying poem:

Snowman Soup
I'm told you've been quite good this year.
I'm always glad to hear it!
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit.

So here's a cup of Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow.
It's sure to do the trick!

In the Naughty bag was this poem...

Snowman Poop
I've heard that you've been naughty!
Now listen, here's the scoop.
I'm running short on coal this year,
So you get Snowman Poop!

...and a baggie of marshmallows.

Today, in Atlanta's "Snowpocalypse" we've already needed hot cocoa, but we had no marshmallows.  I suppose I should have joined the bread and milk lines at the grocery yesterday to buy them.  We were home making candy cane ice cream instead. (The best possible use for a candy cane.)  Plus, as a friend pointed out, if you have wine and chocolate, what need do you have for bread and milk anyway?

As you can see in the photo, at least the birds are well fed!
