    Wink Hot enough for ya comebacks

    It finally got hot,really hot,around here today(102') and the knuckleheads are out in force. What is your response to the conversationly/mentally challenged who ask, "Is it hot enough for you"? This to someone who is dripping sweat. I have tried- "No, the sweat hasn't reached the crack of my butt yet".

    How about: "well, it's not hot enough to stifle your stupidity, I see..."

    That is surely a start. Being "from around here" you know stupidity is a relative term. We need to get to the farthest reaches of that tunnel where the dimmest light exists. This truly is a challenge.

    I was asked that very question at church tonight. I told him it was hot enough for me and 3 other people. I know this man really well so I know it wasn't done out of stupidity or lack of something better to say. He was actually being quite sarcastic since he was sitting there wiping the sweat off his forehead

    But for those that ask it, and really mean it, tell them, "Well it's 29 out but feels like 33." And of course the "really?" and "What?" and "Are you kidding me" questions will follow. Just look them straight in the eye, say yes, then walk off without telling them you looked at the Celcius side of the thermometer.

    That 33 converts to 91 here in Bristol. And the humidity is crazy high. And it's 9:00pm, so it's gonna be another miserable night out.

    Yeah I know it does...just saying that it's 91 degrees, here in Bristol. Not that Bristol has it's own version of the metric system

    That wasn't bad. Just too much info. Plus the mercy attempt shows weakness for the clueless. I'd leave it at the 29/33 and let them fend for themselves. After all, I want the entire phrase eliminated. Along with "neck of the woods". Anyone see one of those lately?

    Are you sure it isn't "Hotter than a Fresh F&^%ed Fox in a Forest Fire"?

    This thread reminds me of a song.

    "I walk around in the summertime saying 'How about this heat?'"

    Name that song.

    Someone asked me yesterday if the heat was getting to me, and I told them that I was in the wrong business if 111 degrees farenheit was too much for me.

    First we have the hurdle of getting them to make subject/predicate agreements when speaking.
