Earmuffs have been keeping our heads warm and our hearing safe for almost 150 years, and it's all thanks to Chester Greenwood. Actually, it's also thanks to his grandmother who, the story goes, sewed up a kind of prototype at the then-15-year-old Greenwood's behest. Satisfied with their performance while ice skating, Greenwood would go on to patent muffs of a soundproofing variety in 1873. His hometown of Farmington Maine celebrates the local's birthday and substantial earcomplishments on the first Saturday of December each year, which is solid timing considering the weather. I just hope they all remember his grandma during the parade!

Pop on a pair of your own muffs -- literally or metaphorically -- with these 10 hil-ear-eous comics!
