Hot and Tasty

The BBC is reporting that the UK's hottest July day in history was recorded today in Wisley, Surrey, where temperatures rose to a sweltering 97.7 degrees Fahrenheit. During the nation's recent scorching heat wave, schools have been shuttered, roads have been closed due to melting asphalt, railway lines have buckled and for some reason I can't figure out, zookeepers have handed out "blood-flavoured ice lollies" to their animals.

July 20 will also go down in history for the largest number of eggs fried on the bonnet of a car in the UK on a single July day. The previous record had been three.
