“Cold (and Snowy) ‘Nuff Fer ‘Ya?”

With (mostly) stoic Minnesotans recovering from a one-two punch of 16″ of snow and subzero windchill, I thought now would be an opportune time to recycle an email I got a couple years ago (sorry, don’t remember the source).


50 above zero:

Californians shiver uncontrollably.
People in Duluth sunbathe.

20 above zero:

Floridians wear coats, thermal underwear, gloves and wool hats.
People in Minnesota throw on a flannel shirt.


People in Miami all die.
People in Minnesota close the windows.

25 below zero:

Hollywood disintegrates.
The Girl Scouts in Minnesota are selling cookies door to door.

460 below:

All atomic motion stops.
People in Minnesota start saying . . .”Cold ’nuff fer ya?”

One last one, kind of in the same vein:

What do Minnesota Jews call themselves?

“The frozen chosen.”
