This weekend, wacky Chicagoans dove headfirst into an ice-cold Lake Michigan as a part of the annual Chicago Polar Plunge, an event dedicated to raising money for the Chicago Special Olympics.
Actor Vince Vaughn was the leading celebrity guest of the event, but another low-key plunger stood out: Lady Gaga, riding in on her trusty muscular steed and new fiancé, Taylor Kinney.
Gaga looks as though she had a frozen hell of a time in the lake, so we took it upon ourselves to speculate on what was probably going through her head as she took the Plunge:
"God, it's like frickin' minus infinity out here. What did I sign up for?"
"Alright, chill out Stefani (heh, 'chill'). You're engaged now, time to try some new adventures."
"And besides, how bad can it be?..."
"OH GOD NOPE."
"NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE."
"STOP RASSLIN' AND GIVE ME YOUR BODY HEAT, YOU FIEND."
"YOU SAID THE WATER WOULD BE WARMER THAN THE AIR. Liars don't get to wear hats."
"Seriously Taylor my hair is literally turning to ice GIVE YOUR HAT."
"I agreed to marry this guy."
"Well, I mean, it's not all bad. Have you seen him emerge shirtless from a frozen lake?"
"Wait, have the cameras been here the whole time?! Quick, vogue."
"Nailed it. Tay, remind me to add heated everything to the wedding wishlist."
"Alright fine, it was all worth it. For the kids. For the kids for the kids for the LOVE OF GOD SOMEONE GET ME A THOUSAND BLANKETS."
