“Do you smell carrots?” (snowman joke)

A snowman usually has a carrot for a nose. A popular joke (cited in print since at least 2002) has two snowmen standing in a field. One snowman asks the other, “Do you smell carrots?”

The joke has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: Snowman
A snowman is an anthropomorphic snow sculpture often built by children in regions with sufficient snowfall. In North America, typical snowmen consist of three large snowballs of different sizes with some additional accoutrements for facial and other features. Common accessories include branches for arms and a rudimentary smiley face, with a carrot standing in for a nose. Human clothing, such as a hat or scarf, may be included. Low-cost and availability are the common issues, since snowmen are usually abandoned to the elements once completed.
