'hotter than Haiti's' for 'hotter than Hades'

I’m just passing this one along. It was discovered by my distinguished colleague Annette Kawecki, M.D. in the transcription of a dictated medical note . (Just what kind of notes Dr. Kawecki is dictating these days is a different question!). About 50 ghits:

The weather is by far the worst, it goes from 40 degrees with 40 mile an hour
winds to hotter than Haiti’s.

Jake proudly and quickly announced he was going to be a beach guy. It helped that it was hotter than Haiti’s here last night.
