It’s so hot the jokes are melting

I think it’s safe to say the ‘hottest’ topic in Prince George this week is the weather.

So, with that in mind (and because I was too hot to think), I went on the Internet and found a selection of “It’s so hot . . . “ jokes. I did research on a number of sites, and found many of the same jokes on each of them.

(By the way, it’s called plagiarism if you steal from one author, and research if you steal from many authors.)

With that out of the way, here we go.

It’s so hot, the cows are producing evaporated milk.

It’s so hot, you can wash and dry your clothes at the same time.

It’s so hot, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking.

It’s so hot, you can’t make a chili dog.

It’s so hot, fire hydrants are fighting over dogs.

It’s so hot, the frozen pizza I bought at the grocery store was ready to eat by the time I got home.

It’s so hot, the chickens are laying hard-boiled eggs.

It’s so hot, birds are using oven mitts to pull worms out of the ground.

It’s so hot, I discovered my seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron.

It’s so hot, my thermometer goes up to “Are you kidding me?”

It’s so hot, Tabasco sauce tastes mild.

On to other things. Today marks the halfway point of 2021. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but at least on the COVID-19 front, we seem to be making progress in getting back to somewhere close to where we were over a year ago.

The Cougars and the Spruce Kings have released full-season schedules. (Think about ice and the heat seems to fade for a moment.) The WHL is still making at least one provision partly for COVID: There are no games between the Eastern and Western Conferences this season.

Canada West has announced all of their sports will have full schedules, but again, UNBC teams will only play the other teams in B.C. That’s partly to avoid COVID-isolation problems, but also a cost-cutting measure after last season with no sports.

We have our first big concert of the fall announced, with the twice-postponed Saints and Sinners tour coming to CN Centre in November.

While there has been nothing announced officially, it appears the World Womens’ Curling Championships will be played in Prince George in 2022, after the last-minute postponement in 2020.

As long as people in B.C. behave as intelligently (for the most part) as we have the last few months, there’s no reason masks won’t become a personal decision and not a legal requirement by the beginning of September.
