    Talking Campfires Banned, Along With Bra Burning, Flag Burning....

    SYDNEY, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Australia's looming bushfire
    season claimed its first victim on Thursday -- anti-U.S.
    demonstrators who tried to burn an American flag in Sydney.
    "No, you can't do that, there's a total fire ban," a police
    officer said as he yanked the flag from two protesters who had
    set a corner of the flag afire with a lighter.
    The demonstration of several dozen peole against a possible
    U.S. military offensive in Iraq fizzled.
    After one of the driest winters on record, and with the El
    Nino weather event promising to bring more drought and heat,
    Australia is bracing for another ferocious bushfire season.
    Fire bans were imposed in New South Wales state.
    No fires can be lit in the open. Electric or gas barbecues
    can only be used within 20 metres (65 ft) of a home and must be
    supervised by "responsible adult" with running water at hand.

    That's almost as funny as that video from last year when some Afgahi was trying to burn a US flag and it wrapped itself around him while it was burning.

    So the whole attempt to ban flag burning w/a constitutional amendment was needless; all we had to do was have an outdoor burning ban! As George Carlin said:

    Well that's just not fair! They don't even have fireplaces to burn bra's in...sheesh!

    Come to think of it, I don't think many of them have gas bbq's either. When I was there, we dug a pit in the backyard, put some bricks around it, and called it a bbq. Best BBQ I've ever had though

    10 points to the Police Officer.

    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.
