Must. Resist. Double. Entendres.

Quick, hose me down before I catch fire!

His bio is really charming though.
"The experience was somewhat traumatic in that it was completely foreign for this little protestant boy to be in close quarters with a nun dressed in a habit. At the same time, it was quite a novelty to be doing something apart from his identical twin Doug."

And he seems pretty serious and committed about it. Shame there's no mp3s on the site. I do like a good bit of fidd-(REST OF COMMENT DELETED BY COMMENTOR'S ADMIN CONSCIENCE.)

I like the opening line:

"IN 1871 a cow kicked over a lamp and started a fire that reduced Chicago to ashes, and a bucket of water started a fire that leveled Seattle 18 years later."

That Seattle blaze was some kind of slow fire... carried to the four corners of the city by pyromaniac tortoises perhaps?

Dunno about Seattle blaze, Nick, but I've caught up with the cow story now, a myth perhapth.

Boynton, you must post some of these gems to Sars every once in a while. (Like, once a week? PLZ.)

More cautious about posting bills in a public place than running with the whims in a backwater...
