It’s So Cold In Minnesota That Even Ghosts Started Wearing Pants

I wasn’t scared. But, yet, I stopped
What could those pants be there for?
What could a pair of pants at night
Be standing in the air for?

Winters are really cold in Minneapolis, Minnesota, so to brighten up the mood, Tom Grotting started erecting frozen jeans in his neighborhood. The locals quickly caught on and followed the new trend.

Grotting has been amusing his neighbors since 2013. How do the pants stay up? He soaks them in water and then sculpts them outside as they freeze.

“I mostly do it for my neighbor, Diane,” Grotting told ABC News. “The winter gets a little long and she doesn’t like winter very much so it’s mostly entertainment for Diane.”

Absolutely hilarious. Yes, it's cold in Minneapolis but the people there have warm hearts and a sense of humor unlike anywhere else. I'm sending this right up to Minneapolis friends to see if this is true. ;-0 Thanks for sharing.
