Extreme cold enthusiast and motivational speaker Wim Hof has decided it’s time to put the heating on.
As temperatures continue to plummet across the country, Hof has admitted that there are only so many jumpers you can wear before it’s time to give the boiler a good workout.
“It is time,” said Hof.
“Yes, winter has been approaching for a while now, and I have been using a series of concentration and meditation techniques which have allowed me to reduce my ex vivo proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine response. But have you looked outside today?
“Everything is covered in frost. Sod that. I’m happy to sit in a bath of ice for hours at a time, but even I draw the line when you’re having to scrape the ice off your car windows in the morning. Yes, I’m happy getting into a freezing plunge pool in a pair of budgie smugglers, but getting into a cold Audi A3 while it’s still dark outside is inhumane.
“I’ve got two pairs of socks on this morning. TWO!”
Despite Hof announcing his plan to put the heating on, fathers across the North of England have insisted it’s still too early, that you should add another jumper, and that you should only come back when there is an icicle hanging from your nose.
