Tough times at the sea wall

You wouldn't think a sea-wall would lead to this!!
The chairman of the Foxton Community Board says he will not apologise to a couple whose image he publicly burned until hell freezes over.
Basil Vertongen burnt a photo of Christina and George Paton at the official opening of a beach seawall in the Horowhenua town earlier in November.
The Patons and 16 others had opposed the wall, which was completed more than a decade after it was first proposed.

To les barricades mes amis, or not if the Chairman has burnt your photo, there.

Ah, Vertongen... according to the Venerable Bede, he invited the Saxons to fair Albion's shores.

Being publicly burned until hell freezes over would suck.

Just Hell freezing over would suck; I probably wouldn't be able to get to the liquor store.

I'm tempted to link to illustrations of Inferno to prove that Hell has in fact frozen over already... but you know all that.
You would be able to get to the liquor store, but they only stock Miller Lite.

Could the Heavenites allow Hell to freeze over? That would kind of dilute the fear. "Be good, in your life, or you'll have to learn to ice skate!!!"

Clearly you have never read Bloch's famous story "The Hellbound Zamboni".
