“It was so hot in New York that I saw squirrels fanning their nuts”

Television’s Late Show with David Letterman (1993-2015) was based in New York City, and there were many New York City jokes. David Letterman told this joke in July 29, 1999, as posted on the newsgroup rec.humor on July 30, 1999:

“It’s so hot, I saw squirrels fanning their nuts.”
