I burning your log

Good laugh listening to Wait, Wait— Don’t Tell Me this morn. During the Lightning Fill-In-The-Blank round, Charlie Pierce was asked something like, “In Germany a woman called the fire dept to extinguish her burning ______?” Charlie had no idea & guessed DOG! I broke up about that, & the real answer is her tv was broadcasting a burning log, which is still amusing. I was thinking maybe Charlie’s been hanging around in here. I work with a woman from Germany, man, she’d be livid if someone torched her Mittens!

Ahhh, they’re 1920s-style “Death Rays.”


Sorry, I’m a little behind the times.
