A buddy out of Portage said he'd killed a mosquito that was carrying a canteen.


A man in Oxford said the chicken farmers were giving the chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.


In Lake Delton, they caught a 20 lb catfish that had ticks on it!


But just this week, in Baraboo, a fire hydrant was seen bribing a dog.


It's so dry in Wisconsin that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving out rain-checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water.


Now THAT's Dry!

Very dry here also, I water hanging baskets everyday. It has been hot also, I hate the heat.

Very dry here in Texas. We have a lot of trees in the yard and a lot of squirrels. We see them laying flat on the ground trying to cool off. My DH put a tray of water out hoping it would help them. We are lucky to have a well to water the yard so they get water then too.

Love when chuckles are posted, we all need the lift. Those were great, and am sending the hard boiled egg to my grandkids who have to gather eggs each day.

Itís so dry the fish are knocking on the door, askiní for a drink of water.

Itís so dry youíre only permitted to eat watermelon between 8pm and 8am.
Itís so dry the government has announced a water pistol buy back scheme.
Itís so dry, crooks are siphoning off radiators instead of gas tanks.
Itís so dry, theyíre encouraging people to pee in the pool.
Itís so dry, the the dogs are marking their territory with chalk lines.
Itís so dry theyíve had to close two lanes at the swimming pool.
Itís so dry the Mississippi River only runs twice a week.

You have to be kidding. We have so much rain here. The streets and roads wash away. We haven't had any dry weather in weeks and weeks. It has been a disaster area. It definitely is not one bit dry.

Don't know what part of Wisconsin you are from but dry it isn't. This July we had 12 inches of rain. Everything is green and the sounds we hear are lawn mowers running and the air conditioners going full time because the humidity it so high.
