You say that like it was a 'bad thing'! 

Some of us *like* fresh fried fish!

Didn't you ever read that pamphlet in school "Our friend fire 
(or why Johnny has scorch marks where his eyebrows used to be)"?

Dude! Fire is ... like ... totally natural and organic, man.
It's nature's way of cleaning out the chaff ... like out of 
favor mobsters (oblique reference to Shonder [call me 'Cinder'] 
Burns) ... and mayors with bad hair (Ralph Perk).

It's a celebration of the cycle of life! 
(Ooops, sorry, that was Detroit.)

Just remember what the good book says:  "Give a man a fire and 
you warm him for a day. But _set_ a man on fire ... and you 
warm him for the rest of his life!"


(Hey, they'll never pin that one one me ... I was ... uh ... 
ummmm ... I was standing in line somewhere ... I'm sure people 
saw me.)
