Chill Out!

It's tongue-draggin' hot around here. 

The temperature here claims to be only about 93 but the weather peeps say it FEELS like 117 and they're RIGHT! We've noticed lots of you (and us) hanging inside close to the AC, so we thought we'd post something to help cool you off.  At least the THOUGHT of it might help cool you off!

These pics are from the Polar Bear Plunge New Year's Day (this year) at a local beach.  Now, we'll admit it wasn't all that cold, maybe in the 50's, but it SEEMED kinda chilly that day, especially compared to TODAY. 

You've heard of Polar Bear Plunges, right?  Yeah, well, it's not what you'd think!  There wasn't ONE polar bear in sight.  BUT, there were lots of strange-looking humans doing strange things.  Oh, yeah, there were some dogs.  Bet they were there to see polar bears, too, and got totally disappointed!

Before we show you the pics, we must warn you that there are some scantily clad humans in these pics and one that is just EXTRA strange - we'll put it last and give you another warning in case you might get, um, offended.  But we've got to put him in here 'cause we think he's trying to challenge Frankie for the role of Captain Underpants and that's just not right!

But first, we'll show you the Polar Bear Plunge in action ~ 

(Disclaimer: Not our video. Owner's info is listed here :)

Now, we'll show you some of those nutjobs up close and in person.

Dude looks like a lady!

Water . . .get me to the water!

You want a piece of me???


Can you spot Abraham Lincoln?

Okay, here comes the one that you might not want to see.  Trust us, we're real sorry we had to see it!  You probably don't wanta biggify this guy!  Small is bad enough!

We think he may be the one of the local politicians! BOL!

So, are ya feeling any cooler???

BOL! I see even some dogs took the plunge, but that one little dog was really trying to warn everyone not to do it! Frankie will be livid when he sees that guy, or else he'll try to recruit him as a side kick!
