Eggs fried on sidewalk
Frosty Snowman is big drip
Hell orders a fan


  1. Marlapaige said,

    Hell orders fan is a great line.
    Hell buys A.C.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks, Marla. πŸ™‚

      • Marlapaige said,

        Welcome πŸ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


      • Marlapaige said,

        How are you doing this evening?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Trying to stay cool.

        Wish I had air conditioning.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Oh man! You can do a swamp cooler. It works, but does add some humidity to the rolm

      • Marlapaige said,

        I apologize. That’s something we call it here. Didn’t dawn on me that others may not have a clue what I mean. A swamp cooler is made of dry ice and a fan. As the ice melts the fan blows the cooled air into the room. But if it’s already humid it probably won’t be much use.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I had to google swamp cooler.

        At first I thought a swamp cooler was a cool alcoholic beverage the Swamp Creature sampled in a Louisiana swamp on a hot summer evening.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Ok. That’s actually an amazing name for a cold beer ina frost mug! But now, it’s just another way to pull of a/c without actually having it. Or if it’s the humidity, you can get a fairly inexpensive dehumidifier to pull the humidity from the room, just remember to empty it makes it easier to breathe when it’s like soup. There are also portable /c units but good ones are bulky and can be heavy while also requiring to be emptied. But there are options. I hope you cool off soon!

      @Marlapaige Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide. Satan probably uses it in the freezer section of Hell, to quickly freeze the new entrants πŸ™‚

      • Marlapaige said,


      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, the Norse goddess Hel uses it to freeze people in Niflheim the Norse frozen Hell.

        Satan uses heat to dethaw them when they enter his Hell.

  2. Jo said,

    That bad, huh? It’s not very hot here, but it’s humid and awful. Oh, well…

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, it’s 31 degrees Celsius here.

      Although on the news last night, they were saying it’s 42 degrees Celsius in Las Vegas.

      Which makes me glad I’m not currently in Vegas. πŸ₯΅

      • Jo said,

        Well, 31 degrees Celsius is not that bad. Sometimes, we have in Bucharest 40 degrees Celsius in the shadow. So imagine…

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That would be really hot. πŸ₯΅

  3. Shweta Suresh said,

    I guess Hell will have to upgrade to an AC soon.

  4. Lucy said,

    Sounds about right for the summer.

  5. Suma Reddy said,

    Eggs fried on side walk πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ well opted for a hot πŸ”₯ summer.

  6. Kritika said,

    Hahaha fried eggs on side walks. I only imagined the first two lines. πŸ˜€
    Perfect summer haiku.

  7. Sherry V.H said,

    Eggfriend on sidewalks … that is truly very, very hot!
    Here as well.
    I can fry bacon on sidewalks as well. LOL

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      So you’re able to whip up bacon πŸ₯“and eggs 🍳 on the sidewalk, Sherry. πŸ˜€

      • Sherry V.H said,

        Probably that will end up as good business – sidewalks restaurant just serving the fried eggs bacons! LOL

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        A delightful new business idea for hot weather. πŸ˜€
