Snowmen not really banned in Saudi

A prominent religious scholar in Saudi Arabia has reportedly issued a fatwa against building snowmen in the kingdom, stating the practice is not acceptable to Islam. [The Telegraph]
I have just come out of a closed-door meeting with top-level imams to discuss this most pressing and earthshaking issue, and the consensus is that this cleric has erred in his reading of scriptures.

Making snowmen is perfectly fine. However, snow-women must always be built with a niqab or burqa. And snow-women must always be accompanied by their father, uncle, or brother snowman. And it goes without saying that snow-women cannot vote, cannot drive, are most definitely not entitled to any formal education, and cannot have any profession other than motherhood.

Oh, and before I forget, it was unanimously agreed that snow-goats are a must when making snowmen. Ice-Muslims need mates too you know.
