What's That Funky Smell?

In case you notice insalubrious amounts of smoke over the 5000 block of Midmoor Road today (Saturday, July 11), have no fear, it's the Monona Fire Department burning down a house. Seems counterintuitive, the Fire Department starting a fire, but practice fires are, of course, an important tool.


By the way, the title of this post is a paraphrase from an old Richard Pryor skit that is roll around on the floor funny and also contains biting social commentary as well as insalubrious amounts of profanity, insensitivity, vulgarity, and other bad-ity's. I think he apologized for this type of humor later in his life - after his near death experience left him disfigured and sober in all senses of the word - and not real funny. The skit contains enough F-bombs and N-words to start a war. The transcript is here, but do not complain to me if you click on it and are offended.
