Do you want to build a snowman? Who can forget the plaintive song of that dewy eyed girl in that weird movie about two creepy sisters who live in a frozen palace in the snowy north. After being initially spurned, the older sister finally does make an abominable snowman with her younger sibling. It’s a classic moment that melts even the coldest of hearts…
Unfortunately, the girls’ father Grady soon chops both of them up with an axe, and the young sisters spend the rest of eternity wandering the hallways of the hotel where he was the caretaker. It’s a wonderful movie, although a bit scary in parts.
Incidentally, the sisters in this cartoon are from Finland, and that’s modern day Stockholm in the background. There is a word in Old Norse for being hexed by Finnish witches – finnvikta – and that’s exactly what these young girls are doing to the city of Stockholm.
Why, you ask? Because these sisters are completely evil, not to mention Grinsane. They also had to pay 30 dollars for a cheeseburger while visiting the Viking museum, and that’s got them peeved. By the sway, if you think building a classic snowman with a carrot nose and a corn hole pipe is fun, you should try building an abominable one with black magic.
Just for fun, since you’re still reading, I want you try and say the word abominable five times as quickly as you can. Then try the alternative version of the same word and try and say “abominidable” five times as well (that’s the version I would have used if I didn’t get spell checked into using the proper one). Once you’ve got those words mastered, you’re half way towards building your own snowman using nothing but magical words in Old Finnish. And if you ever succeed at that, pray you have a flamethrower handy!
