Why are those belonging to witches colder than others?

6F chez moi ce matin.
Ahhhhhh, j'aime l'hiver!

Not to be picky - well, alright, in the interests of being excruciatingly picky - there's nothing in the phrase to indicate that a witch's thoracic appendage is colder than that of anyone else's thoracic appendage, since the witch's appendage is the comparand (ooh - a new word!).

But I don't like pedantry, so let's just pretend I didn't make this comment.

According to:,

"The simple explanation is that "colder than a witch's tit" is just a vivid metaphor, like "hotter than the hinges of hell." Since a
witch is in league with Satan, presumably she has no maternal feelings. Thus the medium by which she would suckle a child is,
well, cold as a witch's tit."

So there you have it.
