Entry from February 15, 2017
“How often should you wear gloves in the winter?"/"Intermittenly.”

A joke about winter mittens was printed in the “Cryptoquip” column in many newspapers on February 1, 2008:

“I don’t really love having gloves on my hands. THat’s why I only wear them inter-mitten-ly.”

A similar pun was posted to Reddit—Dad Jokes on February 13, 2017:

Q: How often should you wear gloves in the winter?
A: Intermittenly.



1 February 2008, Albuquerque (NM) Journal, “Cryptoquip,” pg. C2, col. 5:
Yesterday’s Cryptoquip: I DON’T REALLY LOVE HAVING GLOVES ON MY HANDS. THAT’S WHY I ONLY WEAR THEM INTER-MITTEN-LY.

@mattfraction Unlike CalTrans, who’ve at times used “intermittenly.”
Looks like something to do with knit gloves, I tell you.

Someone who only puts on winter gloves occasionally might be said to wear them intermittenly.
