The Iceman
« on: May 03, 2013, 10:12:07 AM »
His bearded head showed up near that near-permanent area of open water in The Chuckchi Sea. This is from May 1st. The ice almost seems to fall into the hole in that area, so I don't think he will stay around for too long.
Is it progress if a cannibal eats with a fork?

Your Iceman reminds me on Panoramix (de RenĂ© Goscinny et Albert Uderzo).  :)

Yes, he certainly has that druid-thing going for him :)

Haha, fantastic! Very, very well-spotted.

I wrote a blog post about this phenomenon two years ago: Arctic Faces.

And don't forget sneezing santa:

@ivica

LOL.

But "Panoramix" may be more familiar to Anglophones as "Getafix". And yes, it does for me too.

Alas, already squished. Must have been hit with another menhir...
