Usually he burns on Saturday night. This year, though, they're mulching him instead.

He's burned out mentally by Tuesday afternoon at the latest. Physically? Hell, a couple years ago he couldn't even lift both arms by Saturday night.

IMHO: If there's a god in heaven, the man would burn Tuesday night in an 'accident' involving illegal fireworks, various and sundry propellant and at least a couple of art cars.

OMG! What would all the Who's in Whoville do?

The good news for new folks is the man burning is the least interesting thing that happens all week.

You guys have it wrong -

The man will be built out of recycled lumber, and then chipped into mulch for composting. everyone is encouraged to bring a gunny sack for their share.

I wish they would surprise us AND BURN IT A DIFFERENT FUCKING NIGHT. It's becoming SO staged and predictable. Let's burn it a different night to put some anarchy into an event that I can now take my parents to. And I'm 43!

I'm bringing mulch carry-home bags for everyone. I've got 39,000 plastic ones stuffed in a drawer, and I'll have a couple grand more by late August, I'm sure.

Just doing my part to recycle.
