Few people understand that Burning Man actually evolved out of ancient Swedish cultural rituals.

Wasn't that a big HERRING?

My sister lived in Sweden for a little while....It was there that she learned to hypnotize dogs by speaking softly to them in Swedish. I still remember how to say, "Help me, frog! Thanks shall you have!". (Phonetically, it's "yolpa may, groda! (Rolling the "r"s) Taks groohah!")

If it was REALLY an IKEA commercial they would have shown the celebrants putting the veneered-chipboard components of the effigy together with little wrenches...
