What is the hottest spot on the body?
———- from Tina Smith of Sunderland, MA
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the notorious G spot, nor is it the heart or brain. It is, instead, the back of the uvula, which burns at a constant four hundred degrees Fahrenheit. When you run a fever, it can get even hotter with the danger of setting nearby objects aflame. This is why you should never stuff newspaper down the throat of a fever victim. It’s also advisable not to gargle with mouthwashes that contain a high concentration of alcohol. Doing so could give the phrase ‘dragon breath’ a whole new meaning.
