Unacceptable Conversation Starters

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to propose that the following phrases be stricken from polite conversation in a civilized society:

Cold enough out there for ya?

Wooo…. guess we’re walking in a winter wonderland!

I guess Jack Frost is working overtime today.

Better batten down the hatches! (also: Better bunker down!)

Old Man Winter/Mother Nature’s really got it in for us, huh?

and sadly, my husband’s personal favorite:

Geez, it’s cold as balls out there!

    We hear a lot of the first one around here (although today? 50 degrees! Sweet!)

    My hubby is fond of saying “it’s colder than a witch’s tit.”

    I’m not sure how cold that is, but apparently its pretty cold.

    There’s an entire Canadian comedy routine built around the phrase “Cold enough for ya’?” I’m always tempted to answer “Nah. I could take ten more degrees or so.”

  3. I agree!
    I am so tired of talking about the f’ing weather.

    My son will probably go for your husband’s quote when he gets old & cold. A few years ago, when he was about four, my mother gave him a bath using “proper” body terminology. He listened, paused, and then looked up at her and said, “Well, we call them balls.” Boys…Men…. perhaps the only difference is a few years & med school.
