Top Spot of the Week: Travelers' "Snowball"
A man on his morning walk passes by a lawn sale with a table containing various sundry items. He trips and stumbles, knocking into the table, sending its contents along with him down a steep hill to gather even more items and people in what is a building "snowball" of humanity and inanimate objects.
Becoming part of this ball are pedestrians, a line of motorcycles, a minivan, an entire wedding party, even a bicyclist who tries to peddle away but to now avail. Finally this humongous ball hits a building and disperses, with the people able to walk away relatively unscathed and most of the objects looking pretty much intact. A voiceover relates, "When your insurance is in-synch, you can roll with anything."
