“Hotter than donut grease”

Someone who is “hotter than donut/doughnut grease” is someone who is very attractive (or “hot"). “She is hotter than donut grease!” was cited in print in October 2000. It’s not known where the expression originated.

“He’s hotter than doughnut grease” was said in 2008 to refer to a baseball player’s “hot” hitting.

Sorry about the cheesy metaphor but I rarely post and thought this may be my only chance to use it. I know...I’m a dork...just like the rest of you ;o) I did a search of the hot deals forum and didn’t see this, so here it is. If it is a repost, lock it or let it die with my blessing.

I have to share yet another message I received from a random guy that has baffled me for weeks: “You are hotter than donut grease.” Yes, ladies and gents, there are guys out there who actually use such lines. Honestly, a pick-up line should never include the word “grease.” It is not sexy, and it is not complimentary, although I hear donut grease is pretty hot.
