“Lukewarm implies the existence of matthewwarm, markwarm and johnwarm”

The term “lukewarm” has nothing to do with the Gospel of Luke (one of four canonical gospels along with Matthew, Mark and John), but there are jokes.

“What about those who are not Luke warm but are Matthew warm, Mark warm, or John warm?” was posted on the newsgroup alt.freemasonry on June 30, 1999. “matthewwarm, markwarm, lukewarm, johnwarm” was posted on Twitter by Pfizer the Pvaccinated Cat on November 1, 2012.

“does not the existence of a “lukewarm” temperature logically imply the existence of matthewwarm, markwarm, and johnwarm temperatures as well” was posted on Twitter by Gerry Canavan on April 23, 2019. “Lukewarm implies the existence of Matthewarm, Markwarm, and Johnwarm” was posted on Twitter by Natasha Backlin on October 27, 2020. “Lukewarm implies the existence of matthewwarm, markwarm, and johnwarm” was posted on Twitter by bornloser tetcon on March 10, 2021.

InterestingSidenote: I’d like to know why we have ‘lukewarm’, and not’markwarm’, ‘matthewwarm’ or ‘johnwarm’, or how, if they exist, do they relate?

Spouse and I long ago decided that Matthewwarm = piping hot, Markwarm = the good hot (eg perfect drinking temp for tea), Lukewarm = tepid, Johnwarm = cold.
