Scorchio

Only the british can spend most of the year longing for summer to arrive, then as soon as we get anything resembling hot weather, we start moaning that it is too hot and longing for the cool. The news was full of it this evening; any temperature over 35 is apparently a major news story. Mind you, I was very amused to find that the word ‘scorchio’ was in wide use: it seems everyone remembers the old fast show sketch to the extent that we now use it as a common reference point. There’s quite a bit I could say about that, and ordinarily I’d analyse it…but it’s way too hot.
