    Edited because it is not cool for younger people who do read our site.

    I can't think of a single one in my repertoire that would be appropriate for a PG-rated family friendly site such as this one.

    "Hotter Than Hades!"

    Story goes that the Devil came to Arizona for a visit one time. Went home because he couldn't stand the heat.

    It's so foggy here I cant see what the weather is like.

    It was so cold today, I saw a lawyer with his hands in his own pockets

    No matter how hot it is in New York City, when you walk out of a night club and they hand you the check it will knock you out cold.

    It's hotter than a firecracker on the 4th of July
    firearms forever!

    Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.

    In the heyday of sailing ships, all war ships and many freighters carried iron cannons. Those cannon fired round iron cannon balls. It was necessary to keep a good supply near the cannon, but prevent them from rolling about the deck. The best storage method devised was a square based pyramid with one ball on top, resting on four resting on nine, which rested on sixteen.

    Thus, a supply of thirty cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one problem - how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding/rolling from under the others? The solution was a metal plate called a, "Monkey," with sixteen round indentations. If this plate was made of iron, the iron balls would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make, "Brass Monkeys." Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled. Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the brass indentations would shrink so much that the cannon balls would roll right off the monkey.

    Thus, it was quite literally, "Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey!"

    The brass monkeys story is just that - a story. Urban legend.

    Snopes.com, Truth or Fiction.com, and Ask Oxford all say pretty much the same thing. Cannonballs were never stored in or on devices known as monkeys, brass or otherwise. Also, when the expression first appeared, it was "Cold enough to freeze the TAIL off a brass monkey", doesn't quite fit the given explanation.

    The expression was also modified for use in hot weather - "Hot enough to scald the throat of a brass monkey" - also doesn't fit the seagoing explanation, huh?

    I've been seeing this one around the Net in different places and decided to look it up. What a shock, another piece of incorrect info being spread around the Internet.

    Who woulda thunk it?
