Pretty Grinchy: Frosty The Snowman Shanked On St. Louis Street

If the Grinch taught us one thing, not everyone exudes Christmas cheer. That was made apparent in St. Louis recently, when a Grinch jumped out of a getaway vehicle to stab Frosty the Snowman, resting peacefully on a resident’s front lawn. Now this Frosty was inflatable and this Grinch wasn’t green, but Christmas cheer deflated nonetheless from such a senseless act.

However Jeff Diggs, the owner of the home, caught the crime on act and shared with KTVI what happened.

“We could see a pickup truck come down the street — down the alley here — a passenger jumped out you can see him run up to the snowman here and shank it, try to cut the rope and then he took off went back to the truck and took off,” Diggs said.

As you can see above, the treacherous deed took no more than half a minute to enact. But Diggs is maintaining holiday cheer and created a GoFundMe page to help heal Frosty’s stab wound.

“Frosty received a total of nine stitches from the stabbing. He is doing well and recovering from his injury,” Diggs wrote on the GoFundMe page. “He insisted on going back to work immediately because he believes in the magic of the holiday season and hopes that all people will come together and learn to love and respect each other regardless of our differences!”

Funds raised from GoFundMe will be given to Judge Joe Murphy’s Good Kids In Need, a local St. Louis charity.
