“I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.” – Mae West
So we’re going to have a very big snowstorm here in Chicago, according to most news outlets. I’m calling it “Snowmageddon 2011: The Chicagopocalypse”. The Chicago Tribune even says the potential snowfall could break the city record, currently held by a blizzard that buried the city under 23 inches of snow in 1967. (The 1979 storm often held responsible for un-electing Mayor Bilandic was a more modest 19 inches.) At any rate, right now the snow puns are falling faster than the snow, and I’m hoping to make a collection.

I’ll update this post throughout the day with any great puns I hear. Contribute in the comments, or tweet me @imagesandkeys.
- “The Snowtorious B.I.G.”
- “Snow Much More”
- “The Snowdiac Killer” (it’s the only good, original one I’ll come up with all day)
- Thor: Have any good snow puns?
Dan: An avalanche of them
Dan: But don’t pressure me for them, or you’ll be on thin ice
Dan: if you catch my drift
Thor: Die slowly.
Here are a few from my coworkers, Erin and Brett:
- “The Blizzard of Oz”, which Brett informs me is an Ozzy Osbourne album. I still like it.
- “Snowgadishu, Snowmalia” (Erin)
- “The Four Snowmen of the Snowpocalypse” (Erin)
- “You and Me and Everyone We Snow” (Brett)
- “Snowbodan Milošević” (Erin)
- “Bubba Snow-Tep” (Erin)
- “It’s the End of the World as We Snow It” (Brett)
- “Snowtel Rwanda”, “Snowtel California” (both Erin)
- “The Posnowidon Adventure” (Brett)
- “Pandesnownium” (Brett)
And, just so I don’t get it as a submission, “snowmageddon”. Heard it already, chilluns.
Postscript: The RedEye must have been holding their own contest – their front page has “Snowverload”, which is pretty good, but it’s no “Snowbodan Milošević”.
