The next few days are supposed to be bone-chilling cold. We have a lot of winter still to come in the Garden State. If you work outdoors I feel for you.

It’s become tradition that when we get into the winter months I search in vain for an ‘it’s so cold’ joke that will actually make me laugh. Or even slightly chuckle. I’ve been known to offer up a $20 bill for anyone who can call in one of these dumb jokes and get anything out of me.

I occasionally try creating my own with a Jersey twist. Here are some I came up with over time. As you can see, they’re all pretty awful and no one would get paid $20 for these.
