    Burning leaves also smell good. Sadly can’t do that here anymore.

    Probably much quieter, too. Leaf blowers are one of the most annoying devices ever invented (and a waste of gas for the non-electric type)

    In other news, Pete the Pyro was sentenced to 10 years in prison for burning down his own house. Sources say he just couldn’t leaf things alone.

    I suggested doing just that to get rid of the leaves of the three large maple trees in our yard. My wife is such a spoilsport!

    Yah. I remember raking them int big piles and putting foil wrapped potatoes into the pile and lighting it on fire. After all the leaves burned down we would have baked potatoes. MMMMMMM

    Of course (you lame colorist) if they’re green they’re harder to ignite. And they probably wouldn’t be on the ground raked into a pile, either.

    Don’t wait for them to fall. Just light them up on the tree.
