It’s so cold that . . . we want your jokes

It continues to be cold in Boston.

OK, we get it, you’re funnier than we are.

Here at the Globe we were weary of this unrelenting, uncomfortable, even dangerous cold weather. (Not to mention the snowstorm that’s on the way.) We bet that you were, too. So we threw out a few “It’s so cold . . .” jokes and asked you to brainstorm some of your own.

Well, the weather may be cold, but you readers were on fire.
