CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - People in Michigan are enjoying a very cool winter sight.

Massive ice balls...

And the question is:

What happens to a group of men when Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano, and Michelle Obama walk into the room?

I didn’t read enough of the article to see if it said. I am going to assume that, in certain light, they are blue and, therefore, must be blue!

BTW, you have a great “About” page! Very nice and concise info about NBC. I get into discussions with the “Birther” deniers from time to time and am amazed to see that their minds are welded shut on the issue. It’s a bit disturbing, to say the least.

Have a good weekend, FRiend.

Here's a more concise, catchier headline, rather than "Massive ice balls attracting attention along Lake Michigan":

"Look at MI big balls"
