Hot as a Half-F**ed Fox in a Forest Fire

That's pretty insensitive considering what just happened earlier this week.

Blimey, it's hot in here, Bruce.
It's hot enough to boil a monkey's bum!
That's a strange expression, Bruce.
Well Bruce, I heard the Prime Minister use it. "It's hot enough to boil a monkey's bum in 'ere, your Majesty," he said and she smiled quietly to herself.


I've liked "fair up" for a weather term... it means it's clearing: "It's supposed to rain this mornin', but it should fair up this afternoon."

Kind of off-topic, but as far as wet weather, I heard a weatherman in Gainesville FL describe excessive rain as "a real frog choker".

/Had never heard that one before.

I first heard the one about the bear in N. Florida, where I got a summer job during high school working for a black fellow who was a brick mason as well as a roofer for the local school board.  Did repairs and improvements while school was out.

He worked my butt off, and whenever I'd start slacking, he'd say '"Did the bear get you?"  Or, "Is the bear gonna get you?"

Where I grew up in the year-round gloom and rain of the PNW, we didn't have a word for "hot". The closest we could come was "wood-burning stove".*

* - damned near factual statement

Sweating like a pig on butchering day.
Sweating like a two dollar whore on nickel night
Sweating like an African American on election day*

Northern California has been under some pretty severe heat conditions for over a week now. I am just past Sacramento and and it has been roughly a high of 109 since last Wednesday.

The Delta Breeze finally kicked in and I believe today should only be 95! Brrrrrr

/I know, I know, only a week. But still. Ick

"Hot? Wouldn't know. I'm inside; we have air conditioning."

or

"Poor people problems."

It's not the heat. It's the humanity.

It's Summer, it's Texas and it's hot. Is there someone surprised by this?

"Hot as a fox in a forest fire."

Ronnie Van Zandt, Lynyrd Skynyrd (1976).  Bet he wasn't the first one though.

Wool socks and shirts (good ones) do a great job of wicking and naturally anti-microbial. Not as drastic as winter hiking (cotton kills), in the drenching full humidity summer, cotton is just a wet useless PITA (just like failed perspiration mechanism at these dewpts)

Hot? In Texas? Nah, you just have to learn how to live here. You don't go outside between the hours of 10 am-8pm. Works pretty well actually, then all the stores are empty by the time the dreadful weekly grocery shopping trip comes around
