They taste really good, particularly the custard filled ones.
These probably taste better than the ones that you were thinking of...

It's 'polar vortex", caused by global warming. yes that's right; all the warm, air at the north pole is forcing the cold air south. :lol:

Time Magazine Goes Both Ways On The Polar Vortex
In 1974, Time Magazine blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling.

Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.

Another Ice Age? – TIME

Forty years later, Time Magazine blames the cold polar vortex on global warming

But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles. Usually the fast winds in the vortex—which can top 100 mph (161 k/h)—keep that cold air locked up in the Arctic. But when the winds weaken, the vortex can begin to wobble like a drunk on his fourth martini, and the Arctic air can escape and spill southward, bringing Arctic weather with it. In this case, nearly the entire polar vortex has tumbled southward, leading to record-breaking cold

Polar Vortex: Climate Change Could Be the Cause of Record Cold Weather | TIME.com

At least the 1974 version made sense. Bryan Walsh’s 2014 version makes a complete farce out of science.
At least with blaming the polar vortex on both global cooling AND on global warming Time has a higher chance of getting it right.... ;-)

Was it quite warm and dry last summer with wild fires and all?

But considering the two week memory span of American media, this is obvious:

Conservatives are having a field day “sticking it” to liberals about the weather. They have no time for scientific theories like “Arctic amplification,” which only perfectly models how general warming trends can lead to increasingly severe cold snaps. After all, like evolution, Arctic amplification is “just a theory.”

The common refrain, in light of the “polar vortex” sweeping the country, reads a little something — and just about as intelligently — as this:

Looks like my trolling of The Church just succeeded in bringing the Jesus Fish to the watering hole, blathering on about how his religion is best and anyone who doesn't agree with the Church's decrees being stoopid.

Smells like victory. ;)
