Norwegian public television plans to broadcast a burning fireplace for 12 straight hours from Friday evening, with firewood specialists providing color commentary, expert advice and a bit of cultural tutoring.

Once known as the love that darest not speak its name....

Say, my comment was supposed to go under the infalatables guy story....

isn't it good, norwegian wood

I use to have a VHS tape called "Instant Fireplace". I'd put it in the VCR when I was reading. Now I have a real fireplace that I seldom use. I did use it yesterday during Snowmageddon here in North Carolina. We got TWO INCHES of snow. I can't believe I survived.

Their 17 week broadcast of a rotting cod was a big hit too.

That sounds almost as exciting as a three-day cricket test match. But warmer.

They'll do anything during pledge week.

Major *SNORK* at Clankie.

Color commentary :

"Wow. What an orange flame! "

"No, Mike. I think that was burnt umber. "

Second the *SNORK* @ Clankie!

Let's not forget a hearty *snork* for Lairbo

Beats basketball. Or golf.

Beats golf, but basketball is only an hour long, and you get to laugh at the weird player names.

Sometimes, I tune in just to see the announcer struggle to call The Man Formerly Known as Ron Artest with a straight face.

The Norwegian version of Downton Abbey.
