Classic strip today starring Mary Beth Mammoth. She’s a little paranoid, which is often useful for random joke placement.

Can you imagine a world without fire? How would we toast marshmallows or roast chestnuts? How would we light fireworks or scented candles? Well… I guess you could use an electric lighter. And there are hotplates, of course. And sometimes I like to watch marshmallows puff up in the microwave. And I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a chestnut.

Ok. Maybe fire isn’t that great after all. Besides, what would Smokey the Bear do for a job if there were no fires?
