Okay, it's from an Onion newstory

(the link will expire in a week or so)
but the name is so Burning Man. Just had to share.

This was a good article, but does anyone notice the irony of the situation?

No, I have not heard of or have read the Onion, but this could be a could place to get started on the project.

Sad to say that link is not far from reality!

I knew (or have known) that.

I've been having really idle thoughts of just what happened if you dropped burners into Iraq.

Just my Berkeley upbringing, I'm sure; but then my mother thought Pepperland was People's Park.

A few would be smart enough to try and find a way West to Jordan.
