Do you GET IT?

Harvey issues a challenge.

Let me show you what I mean. Let's say the outside temperature is 10 degrees above zero Fahrenheit (-12 C). You come into my bank, walk up to me, and want to make a witty comment about how cold it is outside. Most of my customers will say... "Boy, it's cold outside"... because they're a bunch of inbred farm-country genetic-defectives.

I'm guessing that my readers can do better.

At first I thought - yeah, that's easy....then I started trying to come up with something. Hmmm...tougher than I thought. But then I realized it's because I'm a reacter. I say a lot of stuff right off the cuff, but it's only funny or "insightful" because of the situation. So...just coming up with a smart ass, or quick witted remark is kinda tough....

Can you do it? Get over there and chime in.

How about "I froze my ass off out there. Here's my cell number. Call me if you find it." :-)

I always tell my hubby after I come in from outside:

"I'm freezing my titties off"

Then he always offers to warm them up for me, nice of him isn't it.

I truly never say anything funny when I'm that cold. Usually I just look at my husband, teeth chatter, body shaking and say, "I think I am going to f---ing die."

That's it. That's the cue I'm cold. It usually happens around 50 degrees. ;-)

Bou - STILL a better comment than 99% of my customers :-)

If I even half know the person, I tend to start with, "It's damn cold out, I'm having trouble breathing around my testicles."
