Frosty the Sn-oh my god he’s crazy

posted by on April 19 at 23:28 PM

UPDATED: Video below.

Frosty Hardison, the parent of 7 who in January prevented Federal Way schools from screening An Inconvenient Truth was on The Daily Show tonight.

Holy. Shit.

I mean, the simple description above is enough to know this guy is nuts, but I had no idea he was actually, like, NUTS.

No video yet (come on Internet!), but here are some choice quotes:

“The global warming we’re experiencing right now would have to be God’s wrath… These are precursors to the rapture, which should occur in about, you know, 5 to 7 years…”

“If you have not accepted Jesus Christ, then you are basically left behind, and a bowl of God’s anger is poured upon the sun, that allows the sun to burn…”

“… waters of the earth, turned to blood, you can’t drink it…”

“… and God comes to live with us and we live with God, and I’m looking forward to having a recreational vehicle and spending a lot of time with my family.”

This bit came a little after he did a mock interview with Al Gore in which he played the part of both himself and Al Gore, that somehow segued into a Mickey Mouse impersonation.

So, not only is the school board listening to this lunatic, but he’s apparently allowed to be near children.

the federal way school district is run by psychotically conservative wack jobs, they banned pajama pants, full length loose-fitting pants for being too sugestive.

Yeah, I mean, have you guys ever actually BEEN to Federal Way? It's nothing but terrible cookie cutter snap-together houses, videos stores and gas stations.

God willing, Frosty and his stupid ilk will be the first to melt in the global warm-up.

Damn. I was going to go to The Daily Show taping with two coworkers last night--but my drunk ass lost my ID about three weeks ago, I don't get a new one until today, and you have to have one to get in. I missed seeing the crazy live! At least they'll have interesting stories today...and if I found out that any of the interview was edited out, I will of course put the juicy details on the slog.

Holy crazy snowmen, Batman! That's absolutely insane. I have a coworker who actually believes the whole imminent rapture thing, too. I seem to recall him having an earnest discussion with one of the other workers who was concerned that the rapture might come before she had a chance to get married and have kids.

I remember thinking that if people think they're going to die pretty soon, the odds of them sticking with an abstinence program were pretty slim. =)

Holy crap, that's amazing.

Why, oh why, does the national press insist on referring to this Federal Way school as a Seattle school, though? Drives me frackin' nuts.

Oh. My. Fucking. God.

And the Federal Way school board actually took this guys seriously for more than 15 seconds? Wow. Did Federal Way import their school board directly from Kansas? I can't really think of any other plausible explanation.

That is a riot! The good thing about this is that the deniers have him as their spokesperson. The bad thing is that people give him the time of day.

Actually, I think ole' Frosty could carve out a nice career for himself as a voice-over artist in say, the video game industry - assuming his isn't carried off to Heaven in the meantime.

If the rapture's coming so soon, why isn't Frosty divesting himself of his worldly goods and going out and saving some damn souls? You can't do the Lord's work from a nice house in the suburbs. Sackcloth, ashes -- come ON, man.

I love the unimaginative literalism that pictures a Heaven with RVs, and a hell with actual blood in the rivers. Koo, koo, koo, koo -- can you hear anything?

Levislade, no one in the country has ever heard of Federal Way, aside from around here. They've heard of Seattle, though. Federal Way IS Seattle if you think "metropolitan area" instead of the usually meaningless city boundaries.

Paper or plastic? Why not use both??

Jesus that was effing amazing.

You're right, Fnarf, but they could get around that with one little word: "Area" "Seattle-area school" would make much more sense. But making it looks as though the Seattle school board would ever sign off on something like this is just wrong.

but hes apparently allowed to be near children.

Yeah, and he's got, what, 7 of his own.

Federal Way IS Seattle if you think "metropolitan area"

Except it tries harder to associate with Tacoma.

And the Federal Way school board actually took this guys seriously for more than 15 seconds? Wow. Did Federal Way import their school board directly from Kansas?

Just about, yes.
