12 hour Long Television Show about Flaming Logs
Hold off on the Scandinavian jokes until the end here. According to Reuters, Norwegian public television is taking reality TV to new heights by airing a 12 hour broadcast of a burning fireplace. "Firewood specialists" are poised to provide "color commentary" for the flaming logs, including "very nerdy subjects such as burning, slicing, and stacking the wood …." Says producer Rune Moeklebust: "It will be very slow but noble television." Sound boring? Well, maybe, but on the other hand, at least somebody out there is trying to help us slow down long enough to enjoy a good fire in the fireplace.
