In fact, frigorifically cold.

I see that a low of o is predicted for Timaru and Queenstown tomorrow, promising a frigoric experience for anyone game enough to expose themselves. :O

My advice is to keep it well greased Cap'n. No need to get frostbite and rope burns all at once.

> and
> Polly wants a cracker

Maybe you should disregard my advise re the lighter then :O ooh! could knock Polly right off the swing doesn't bear thinking about :(

> Hope I didn't offend any of you pulchritudinous

That could be a problem if they wern't so thick skinned Cap'n. Even then, if anything happens to rouse em there's no harm that can be done, if you get my meaning...sir.

Great word Billy. I'm about 12km from Queenstown at this moment and it's 0 degrees. Hardly noticeable really.

Now there is a tenuous connection between this thread and Groucho Marx would you believe?

Just a little while for people to think of it...........

Ok the connection is the 1930 Marx Brothers film 'Animal Crackers'.


Ok the next connection is the character Mrs. Rittenhouse....

No connection yet?

Ok here it is:

There was a song called "Why I am I so romantic" sung by Lilian Roth and Hal Thompson.

The verse started off something like this from memory:

'All the boys I have know used to say I was made of stone,
I would always leave them alone in despair,
I've been on the pan, I've been called an electric fan,
Told I'm much colder than frigidaire......'

And to actually hear the song click here (http://www.return2style.de/duesenberg/romantic.ram)

We now have musical WFTWE :)

Frigidaire, one of the first household fridges made by General Motors in 1918 after aquiring the Mellowes fridge design.

Very well done Terry!

Take a bow.


All we need now is a bishop and an actress and we'll have a full hand.
