Record Breaking Temperature: How Hot Is It?

Boy, it's hot out. 

How hot is it? 

It's so hot that we're actually thinking of drinking LandShark lager to cool down. 

It's so hot that Father Cutié is glad that he doesn't have to wear that heavy black robe anymore.

It's so hot that cats are pissed their owners no longer have a reason to keep them inside. 

It's so hot that people are actually buying The Miami Herald to use as shade. 

It is so hot, that we've officially broken records. The previous hottest temperature on record for June 22 was 94 degrees, today's sweltering temp soared past that to 97 degrees.
