How Hot Is It?

How hot is it?  It is so hot and dry that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinklin, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving out rainchecks and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

How hot is it?  A man in Arkansas said the chicken farmers were giving the chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.

How hot is it?  Just this week on my corner, a fire hydrant was seen bribing a dog!

How hot is it?  Near our city lake they caught a 20 lb. catfish that had ticks on it! 

In Tulsa County a farmer said he'd killed a mosquito that was carrying a canteen. 

How hot is it?

                It's so hot that I'm not movin from this spot til it cools off!

Now that's HOT!!!!

Smiles,
Christine

Postnote: Today the heat index got to 121 degrees.  I'm taking a few days off from blogging in hopes of finding someplace to cool off.  See ya when I get back.  Tsk, tsk.

Good sense of humor will get you through this hot mess. Fun jokes - Poor Rocky looks so forlorn! See you when you return.
