  1. Yes, yet another tradition for kids of all ages comes to an end. The new owners of Chapel Hill Mall have officially killed Archie the Talking Snowman. A 35 year Christmas tradition, now merely a memory.

    Oh well, I'm sure they'll rent the space to some gold-by-the-inch or overpriced embroidery kiosk.

    No funeral arrangements have been announced, but just how do you bury a 40 ft talking snowman???
  2. I can take care of that. I am a funeral director.
    The fisherman in me says to make him a reef.

  3. why bury him when you can blow him up with dynomite!!!!!

    for anyone who doesn't know "archie" he is a 40ft demonic talking snowman. his eyes even light up with a fiery glow when he talks. I think it'd be much more fun to burn him to the ground. I am hoping another starbucks goes up.
  5. in the hell do you burn snow???? C'mon!!!!!! My question is "where do they keep him during the off season....must be one heck of a freezer?" :eek: :eek: :eek:
  6. I have an idea. I say we get Archie donated to OGF, and we lay him on his side, put in a plywood floor, and turn him into a 40 ft long ice shanty. And whenever someone catches a fish, his eyes light up.

    Hey guys, I went to Archie when I was kid! :mad: I just took my 5 year old daughter to him the last 2-3 years. I was hoping I could make it a little tradition with her as well. Not cool. He always has HUGE lines. How could they NOT MAKE MONEY SELLING THOSE PICS!!! Almost everyone spent about 5-10 bucks getting a pic. It was always at least a half hour wait when I went. They better replace it something worthwhile.
  10. Gee When I Was A Kid Chapel Hill Mall Wasnt Even There...i Say Melt Him Down And Use The Water For A Yr Round Trout Pond For The Kids....
  11. Argee...didn't you discover corn? :D :D :D
    Musta been something to see...real working farms where people learned true values of life....I know, I learned how to work on a 600 acre farm. They'll always be the "Good Ol' Days" to me.
