"EPIC!! #uwmadison #snowday #snowfight #Draco #Madison #Wisconsin #bascom."

"All my residents came back from the Bascom Hill snowball bruised, battered, & bleeding. #HoFoProblems Good thing it was a #lakeshorevictory"

Collected tweets — with pics — of the latest classic Madison snowball fight.

What are #HoFoProblems? I don't know, and that tweet seems to be the only tweet on Twitter with that hashtag. Urban Dictionary suggests that "Hofo" is short for "homophobic" or — less likely — a combination of "ho" and "mofo."

IN THE COMMENTS: James said: "HoFo is a House Fellow." HaHa.

Some of them had improvised shields made of lunch trays.

Looked like great fun.

With my street not yet plowed and buses not running - I called a cab to get in, this morning. Cool thing - the driver was a former Armed Forces winter driving instructor. No problem...

Wondering if the daughter was there, but probably not -- she worked 7 hours yesterday and has a final today.

It looks like enormous fun, which is why I wonder why the Authorities haven't tried to stop it in the name of safety.

Perhaps there isn't a catchy hashtag for RA.

My son made it home around 9 p.m. last night. I was surprised since I'd heard earlier that all public buildings in Madison were closed for the day but apparently the closing didn't apply to Badger Bus.

I loved snowball fights in college. Of course me and my closest friends were all pitchers on the baseball team...

Too bad this wasn't a school shooting. A lot of fat, faggy, worthless, lefty targets to wipe out.

Oh well. Wait for the Obama hordes to do it!
