"How Cold Is It?"
It'll be 30 years next month that I pledged Phi Delt. One of the more humorous things we did as pledges was memorize a little list of poems and limericks. Walking across campus, brothers would sneak up behind us and ask, "How cold is it, pledge?" to which we'd have to respond,
It's cold as the rim on a cocktail glass,
Cold as the hair on a polar bear's ass,
Cold as the handle of an out house door,
Cold at the tits on a Norfolk whore.
It's pretty damn cold, sir.
Catchy little ditty that makes me chuckle even today. Worthy of being saved for posterity.
It certainly is cold out there.
