When folks complain about how cold it is up here on the north slope I usually tell them, "you're not kidding, I stepped outside with my cup of coffee and it froze so fast the ice was still warm." I'll admit I stole that one from Festus on Gunsmoke.

Looking at a different thread I thought of this old saying, don't know if its been on here or not.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

Goat Man,

You just insulted all Native Americans and the Whole South.  All with only one sentence.  Now, that takes real skill  :D
