i love the look on the snowman’s face
I feel stupid… I don’t get it.
the ice he’s holding his breath
That’s ok. You don’t have to get all of them. Just pretend that it’s not funny.
But that leaves me with the worry that maybe the joke is that it doesn’t make any sense, and then I find it funny… I’m in a bit of a dilemma here.
I COULD explain it but I don’t think they are ever funny if you get them explained to you.
Ehehehe, it took me forever to get that one.
It must be pretty cold where Biff lives >.
The solution is elementary, my dear LordRetard: You know how you can see your breath in the winter? Where Biff lives, it is apparently so cold that the cloud froze, and Biff is holding the frozen cloud.
So he held his breath… neat.
Forecast says I should be able to do that tomorrow .. ugh..
I wish I was as tough as Biff and could survive at that temperature with just a T-shirt on.
He can survive a lot more than cold!
Tkort, you need to visit North Dakota in January. we are that tough.
Haha, yeah you need to be from a cold climate to get this one. Minnesota is a great start ^-^
its ice storming outside my house right now i hate michigan
I’ve never been in a place that cold >.
North Dakota in January? Bah, try Winnipeg in January!
It was warm in Canada this month. Well, Toronto, mostly. Not sure/don’t care about the other cities, though.
He’s pretty tough to take the kind of cold…y’know, without his blood freezing
How did i manage to undestand it while others didnt?
A bloodsicle! Favored treat of goth kids worldwide!
Living in the caribbean…
I’m not sure if everyone missed this, but for the people who don’t get it, the phrase “holding your breath” takes on a double meaning here.
It can’t be just me who got this. … Right?
Montreal in winter can get darn cold, especially in the suburbs, with wind… When you eyes start leaking and THEN freeze shut, it’s time to go in. It is a very sucky feeling
holds his breath. ha ha ha
where i live we have to fry our conversations to understant each other..!
Colorado this December, we broke three record lows.
snotcicles are the worst. mucus shouldn’t crunch.
Took me 20 seconds to get that one… His breath looks pretty solid. ;o
that was funny, but very cheesy.
I had to read the comments to get this one.
I just audibly groaned, slapped my forehead, and laughed for several minutes.
The pun hurts, mommy! X_X
STill, I swear it’d get that cold here in TExas…I like the cold, but buttkick on a stick. X_X
i’ve never really lived in cold places, all of my chidhood was spent in california, then when i was 14 we moved to new york in the winter, we back in california in three weeks
It would be awesome if your own breath actually solidified like that.
Not really. I could see letting out a heavy sigh and it falling on your foot. Ouch!
let’s see now.
Oxygen turn’s to a liquid at – onehundred forty something or other, so imagine how cold it must be to freeze your breath. Biff’s going to need some blankets soon.
But breathing out is mostly carbon dioxide, so he’s holding dry ice… OW!!! LET GO!!!!! That stuff burns….
(lol @ Stryc9)
Either that or he is holding the ice fromed when the moisture in his breath froze.
Its the moisture that freezes. Dont know what temperatures this would need though. Iv seen -60 C, and that mustve been warm comapred to this.
When I saw the comic, I was trying to figure out what he was holding. Then I read the caption. LOL!
“i’ve never really lived in cold places, all of my chidhood was spent in california…” sayeth Oddly Frozen?!?!?!?! Now I’m really curious as to why OF chose that name.
Got that as soon as i read the “hold his breath” part… Isn’t that funny when u get it right away (still pretty darn funny though). Now, when reading Stryc9′s comment, I laughed.
As for the discussion… the steam you exhale condenses into liquid so you can see it. But it has to touch some really cold ice to freeze instantly, and the ice must get enough cold from the air to not melt.
But actually, u just need -12 deg Celsius: thats the temperature Snow cannons they use to make ski tracks work best on. And they just spray water into the air.
I see you’re a fellow Winnipegger, too, Koer, or did you just visit?
What’s this “Winter” everyone’s referring to?
We only have Summer in Texas.
In nothern Sibiria they sometimes get frozen mist. Imagine walking through mist-covered streets and leaving tunnels as you go. . .
So, frozen condensed breath isn’t entirely unrealistic.
You could have heard my brain for a minute if you where here… tic tic tic tic bing!
OMG! I just got it. Awesome. Took me awhile…
On antarctica, at the Vostok Station, the lowest temperature measured is minus 89,2 degrees Celsius. That is so cold that if you throw a bucketfull og hot water up in the air, it freezes completely before it hits the ground!
So frozen breath shouldn’t be completely impossible )
Impossible? No. Unpleasant? Very Yes!
… I cried when I finaly got this… 5 minutes later…
well more like sobbed…
his breath froze and he caught it
that snowman has a vestigial button out to his left
why is that?
its like suits with the flaps that make you think you have a pocket for your cookies that you’re taking from dance but then you drop them because there is no pocket and you have a nice big icing stain on your thigh and people joke about it all night
You DO realize that if it was cold enough for carbon dioxide to freeze, it would be cold enough to freeze your lungs (or at least freeze the water inside your lungs, which would kill you)
Another reason I’m glad I live in a place where it never gets below 15 degrees F.
i wonder if he also has a lung in there…
That took me a minute, my headphones then fell from my head on their own.
I literally did not get this one at all (until I read someone’s explanation on here). Perhaps it’s because I’m from Georgia. ::shrug::
It would of been funnier if it was a biff snowman in the background
Totally didn’t get it until I read the explanations. Yay Alabama weather! December 3 early morning and it’s a balmy 34 degrees F.
ugg…in NH we’re facing a whole week of the kind of weather that would cause your breath to freeze….plus a huge snow storm….*sigh*
I went out in the winter in a t-shirt once, it’s not that bad.
That’s clever as hell dude.
I live in Alaska, and although I’ve never seen this with breath I’ve done it by spit.
In February, you can just spit, and it freezes and makes crackly noises. So cool!
This is definitely one of my favorites
When I lived in Washington state, I could walk into -20F weather in shorts and a tee shirt and still end up sweating. Cold doesn’t bother me. Moisture and wind chill do.
@kazaaar I feel your pain I have the same problem
