Keep Saying That!
So it's up to you guys to tell me: |
Why is it called a "bonfire"? Who is bon? Was he once the official saint of enclosed fires that make everyone smell like smoked fish? Or is it a smooshing together of other words, like it used to be a "bonniferous fire" but no one wanted to bother with all those extra syllables?
[This post was inspired by the drunk twats who live in my building and insist upon heeing and hawing and whooping next to their bonfire in the sideyard every night until 3am. Yes, it was me who called the cops on you. And yes, it is impossible to get the non-emergency cop number by dialing 411 because yes, the information guy will act all snooty about it because he's gone mad with phone directory power. It would have been so much easier for everyone involved if you just would have shut the fuck up already.]
