Get the dog day afternoon mug.
A phrase of unknown origin, but common in the American South to refer to the hottest time of Summer when even the dogs slept under the porch in the shade. With no escaping the heat, all time stood still and everyone slept.
This was a dog day afternoon. The heat got to us all and even old yeller slept all day under the porch while the last of the corn dried in the field.
