“Justice is a dish best served cold” (otherwise, just-ice would probably melt)

“Revenge is a dish best served cold” is an old proverb. A variation was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on September 2, 2017:

“Justice is a dish best served cold. Otherwise, it’d probably melt.”

The pun is on “justice” being “just-ice.”


Urban Dictionary
Just-ICE
The late eighties and early nineties original gangster rapper from Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Was one of the first New Yor’s MCs Had a mouth full of gold, and was down with KRS-One. Most popular song, “Put That Record Back On”. A really rare album is The Desolate One. It’s just that tight.
Put on Just-ICE. He’s dope.
