#33 - Temperatures

                              How is it outside?                                 Hot?
                              Guess.                                                        Cold.

                              Warm?                                                      Cool?
                              Also cold.                                                 Warmer.

                              Cold?                                                         Very cold!
                              Hot.                                                             Yes.

As well as writing sharp cultural and political satire, Raczkowski also likes to play with language. Not all of his linguistic jokes survive translation, but this one happily does, as the "warmer...colder" system of hints for guessing games is used in both English and Polish.
