Isn't the phrase "hot burn" redundant?

When did people start using it?


Answer by  Krissie (551)

"Hot burn" is not necessarily redundant--burns can come from cold, too. It's possible the phrase came about from how the burn FEELS; i.e., hot.


Answer by  phrogi (79)

The phrase "hot burn" is redundant. However, I think that its' redundancy is needed in particular situations. This is usually used as a descriptor of what kind of burn, as in an insult, is being described. For example, "That's a cold burn, dude." Verses "that's a Hot burn, dude." They both are descriptive of the type of burn (insult).
