(WWJ) As metro Detroit endures days that feel like sitting on the surface of the sun, some are having fun with the situation.

This guy, in particular. He's selling 'grams' of water wrapped in individual Baggies for $10 each on Facebook marketplace. The tongue-in-cheek reference is a play on street drugs in Detroit.

The seller notes, "I got that Fiji, Voss water, essential water, spring water, and for $5 I even got faucet water."

The seller is Bradley Stokes, and he's getting tons of request for his water.

"Lol," "Is this still available?" and "I'm dead" are the most common responses to his listing.

Enjoy the joke, but don't cry with laughter. You'll get dehydrated.

And dehydration is dangerous right now, so eat and drink correctly and stay inside when you can. Get the complete list of cooling centers HERE.

Meteorologists are predicting a high around 95 degrees Friday and 97 degrees on Saturday, but real feel temperatures, including humidity bring the air closer to 105 to 110 degrees

All of southeast Michigan remains under an Excessive Heat Warning until 8 p.m. Saturday. 

With temps this high, metro Detroit could see some new all-time heat records. The maximum temperature for July 19 was 100 degrees set back in 1946. On July 20, the record temperature was 97 degrees set in 1977.

The average temperature for this time of year is right around 84 degrees.
