Three Eskimos and Their Igloos

Three Eskimos were bragging about how cold their igloos were. They decided to visit all three to see which was the coldest. At the first Eskimo’s igloo, the owner said, “Watch this!” He threw a cup of water into the air and it froze before it hit the floor. “That’s cold,” agreed the other two Eskimos, but each maintained that his igloo was colder still. At the second Eskimo’s igloo, the owner said, “Watch this!” He took a big breath and exhaled. His breath froze in mid-air and fell in a lump on the floor. “Wow, that’s even colder than mine!” said the first Eskimo. But the third Eskimo wouldn’t give in. At his igloo, he went into the bedroom, threw back the furs, retrieved one of several small ice balls there, put it in a spoon, and then held it over the fire. In a few seconds when it thawed, it went “faaaaaaart! ” He won.
