How Cold Is It?

It’s so cold, even polar bears can’t handle the polar vortex! Multiple news sources reporting from zoos across the country that polar bears are curling up and staying inside with their snuggie and a cup of cocoa in front of the fire !

  1. aw polar bears. wish they liked human hugs

  2. The new cold joke that I heard last week: It is so cold, when I opened the fridge in the morning there’s a polar bear inside trying to stay warm.

  3. Bear: “Cold .. BAH .. I like this weather .. “

  4. Tony James says:

    Public Service Announcement

    Please do not serve cocoa to polar bears. It is bad for them, and they prefer glühwein.

    Thank you for your attention.

    *snort* Me, too.

  6. I know the feeling. I grew up in Penns but when I moved to the South my blood thinned and I’d rather stay inside too

  7. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I actually like the cold. At least, I prefer it to hot. I can add layers to get warm, but I can only get so naked.

    Still, five degrees was a bit extreme.

    My friend in Atlanta was telling me stories about how unprepared folks were for 17 degree weather, and how many buildings had pipes burst.

    I’m with you! Although, I like living in a part of the country where I have valid reasons to own both snow boots and a wide arrange of flip flops. Sad when people complain about the weather. I enjoy it all (of course, I enjoyed a -40 wind chill from INSIDE curled up on the couch with my kitteh).

  9. I too prefer the cold. Maybe I should move in with some polar bears?

  10. Actually it was six degrees and yeah, we’re kind of wimpy down here.

    Some homeless guy was living in his car until he wrecked it but wanted to make his court apt. So he left the shelter at 1am and WALKED 30 miles to the courthouse to avoid a contempt charge.

    Kicker was, his public defender didn’t show. The bailiffs felt so bad for him they got together and paid $80 for a taxi home.
