Never mind the equatorial divide, here in the Pig's Arse, hundreds of schools have been closed by snow for a week. Except where I work. The blasted snow has been dropping twenty miles inland of us - all we get is rain and/or ice.

I think Kiteman has to mean the county of Suffolk in England, which is (where legend has it) he lives! However, I think it's very nice there (having spent 5 weeks there last year) - anyway pigs are very clean animals, so it's a backhanded compliment really!

Pigs are only clean if you give them a clean environment to live in.....inside, they are able to carry many diseases so clean should be defined I suppose ;-)

Look at a map of the UK. Ignore Ireland. Now picture a witch, riding a pig to your left. Can you see her hat? that's the top half of Scotland. See her long thin nose hanging down? Look further down. See Wales? That's the pig's face. Cornwall is her pointy shoe, sticking out from under her cloak. And, over to the right, is the pig's arse. Imagine where the tail would be stuck on. Now go down a little. That's where I work...

I see the witch, and I think I see where you are talking about. I'm not sure, though.

I can plainly see the pig on the map....the witch is less obvious, but from your description, I can tell where you mean :-)

Ironically, pig-farming is a major local industry.

Must have been the aliens that told them that it would be their lot in life to raise pigs, since they lived inside of one.... *chuckle*

Ummm, "Just because its hot in america you guys are making a big fuss on how to stay hot." That don't compute! Also, USA!USA!USA!

Also you are rather foolishly ignoring that it is winter in the entire Northern Hemisphere, and every one knows that it is the best hemisphere.

Quit your whining Melbourne you had it easy but I almost died of heatstroke when I saw this comp. It's been over 40 degrees Celsius (104ºf) for almost two weeks here in Adelaide, Australia. Just last week it reached 45ºc (113ºf). Today is 43ºc and tomorrows 41ºc.

Well when do you propose this contest be held? When it's only winter in the southern hemisphere? Or do we wait until the next ice-age? I mean...yeah, it's only winter here right now, but it's never winter everywhere.

Just because it's winter in the USA doesn't mean it's winter in America.

I would take a 100 degree day in Arizona over an 80 degree day here on the east coast. The dry heat in Arizona feels so good, compared to the terrible humidity in the Mid-Atlantic region.
