I find this post vaguely unsettling; much as I felt 40 years ago when I heard the joke: What's the difference between a violin and a viola....the viola burns longer. Surely no fiddle can be so bad as to be of no use other than fuel. An experimantal cadaver for an apprentice luthier perhaps?
Teach a few hundred lessons on violins that won't play, and then you'll laugh with me.
Ha. Haha... Haaaahahahaha!!!
A joyous fire is a most appropriate occasion to conclude the existence of an otherwise dismal primative tool. As they say, "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust." To burn something is to create fire, and fire proclaims the crowning achievement of mankind, the hallmark which separates humans from their primative cousins. From the fire, the phoenix rises, and from the fire, our souls will be reborn, transformed from the monkeys we once were to civilized homo sapiens once again.
I'm still a little squeemish. Maybe it has to do with the moron in Florida advocating the burning of Qurans, which I find gratuitously offensive to billions.
let's see, Alaskan frontier-woman vs. "squeemish" guy....I know who my money's on...
Burn, baby, burn!
What a fabulous idea. Is this sponsored by some local luthier? S/he could provide funding for the s'mores and know that s/he will have a substantial increase in business.
BTW, in line with Tom Bop's comment, are you a Mama Grizzlie? We've been hearing a lot about them down here in the lower 48, but I don't know any.
I treed a bear once...
That's quite a feat. How did you manage it?
About the same way you'd tree a squirrel, only bigger.
