“It was so cold that grandpa’s teeth chattered—and they were still in the glass”

"It was so cold that false teeth chattered—and they were still in the glass” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on several images. “It was so cold last week that my grandpa’s teeth were chattering — and they were home on the dresser” was printed in The Little Giant Encyclopedia of One-Liners (1999) by Gene Perret and Terry Martin.

“You know it’s a cold day when your teeth start chattering and they’re still on the nightstand” was said by the “Crabby Road” comic character Maxine (created by Hallmark) and was posted on the newsgroup alt.wisdom on January 28, 2000. “It was so cold...Grandpa’s teeth were chattering—in the glass!” was posted on the Athropolis blog on December 4, 2003.
