However, there are some people who take up these challenges and make them fun and frolic for all to enjoy. This happened recently in Montreal, Canada, when a 33-year old artist and machinist, Simon Laprise, used snow to make his masterpiece.[caption id="attachment_28219" align="alignnone" width="696"] source: Facebook (laprise simon designs)[/caption]
Simon sculpted the snow outside his house to make a life-size replica of DeLorean DMC-12, a car which has played a pivotal role as a time machine in a Hollywood sci-fi film. The model was made to play a prank on the snow ploughing guys who come to clear the roads in the area every morning. As told to a web portal by the sculptor himself,
"I decided to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a car."
However, it grabbed the attention of the traffic patrol on duty who suspected the model to be a real car parked at the 'illegal' roadside. The patrol officer called another policeman on duty to take a closer look at the 'offending vehicle'.

The patrol officers got tricked by the prankster artist but took the ordeal in their stride and even left a note resembling a parking ticket on the sculpture which read,
"You made our night!!! Hahahahahaha :)"[caption id="attachment_28222" align="alignnone" width="696"] source: facebook (laprise simon designs)[/caption]
In fact, Simon is no novice at this sculpting and creating a model business. His Facebook page Laprise Simon Designs is filled with evidence of his fascination with ice scupting as well as remodeling bikes and cars.
