When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

There is more front page news. 2011 to be the last year of the Burning Man Festival? Could this be true? Are we going to burn our last Man?

I love The Shroom site, but I'm baffled at some of the comments on that article - how could someone visiting that blog not realize?

Nothing on that site is true. I've heard it referred to as The Onion for Burning Man.

The Final Burn - Harvey calls it quits

Postby Kimo » Tue Jul 26, 2011 2:39 pm

According to The Shroom, "Black Rock City's Least Best Newspaper", Harvey was quoted today that 2011 will be the last year for Burning Man. Scalping tickets was cited as one of the reasons. The event was created not for others to profit from, but for everyone to come together and celebrate and participate in a one of a kind event. Capitalism has finally caught up with our beloved event and has now destroyed it. Scalpers suck!!! Period!

You should also point out the correction they released:

CORRECTION: an earlier story entitled "Harvey announces 2011 is final Burning Man" omitted to mention that Larry Harvey is a shape-shifting vampire. The Shroom regrets the error, and has made a donation to the NAASSV's scholarship fund.

Hilarious! I happily disseminated that story around the internet.

There's nothing more american than some good old fashioned hysteria.

The rumors of 2011 being the last year are a farce. You couldnt end it anyways. The second BMORG doesnt do a burn on the playa 50 other companies would scramble to get a BLM permit and have "Desert Concert" "Playa Fest 2012" or other. Charge less, offer more and make a shit ton of money.
