Hey, what a big week for high temperatures, aye? First the Miami Heat take the NBA title and then this global warming deal decides to kick into high gear. I don’t know about where you live, but here in the Northeastern United States (i.e. nature’s armpit) it’s been a hot and steamy week. The good news is high temperatures and humidity make for easy joke fodder for the late night shows. Witness the double hit I scored on Thursday’s Late Show (6/22/06) when Dave told not one but two heat related jokes that I wrote for him. He included them in a string of “It was so hot today…” one-liners.
It was so hot today here in New York City the Statue of Liberty was wearing a halter top.
It was so hot today that Angelina Jolie adopted an Eskimo.
See, Dave likes to tell jokes that incorporate famous NYC landmarks, like Grant’s Tomb, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, Times Square, etc. So I thought I’d throw one in about the Statue of Liberty. BLAM! Like shooting fish in a barrel.-Chum [link]
