Giant Snow Woman Spotted In Maine 

Is it an irradiated Frosty run amok? The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Christmas drag? No! It's a Guinness World Record!

My spouse forwarded me this photo of the tallest snowwoman in the world, which was shot by his co-worker Matthew Boynes during a weekend trip to Brunswick, Maine. (Matthew kindly gave us permission to post the image here. Thanks!) He says, "Notice the building to the left and the person taking a photo right in front, as size references."

The good folks of Bethel, Maine, built the world's tallest snowman in 1999, and recently one-upped themselves by several feet and a gender switch.

The creators named her "Olympia", after Maine senator Olympia Snowe; she made her debut on February 29 but seems to be holding up pretty well. Here's another hint about the scale: Her eyelashes are skis.

Check out the builders' blog for a webcam and stats, or see this Flickr photoset of her crane-enabled construction.
