[edit] Spoons'd

Umm...I'ma definitely have to move Spoons on this mahoney. Flashfight 15:42, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

To quote HRWiki:Spoons: "...items which are terribly common and mundane and which are never or rarely used in any sense beyond what would be considered normal..." Fire is "common", but marshmallows (and, separately, the King of Town) spontaneously combusting, and fire coming out of a watering can, etc. are not things that I would call normal. So, whatever a mahoney is... Umm...I'ma definitely have to say keep this mahoney. OptimisticFool 16:33, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

It seems to me this falls under a few distinct categories the it would be fair to dicuss.
Fires as vandalism caper, the process, kids' book, caffeine, Theme Song Video, Answering Machine 11.2, the chair Marshmellows/Campfires Luau, Mr Shmallow, bottom 10, 4 branches
Dragons dragon, Peasant's Quest, theme park, TROGDOR!, Summer Short Shorts
All of these three subgroups are simply fire used as it's supposed to be used. The other 7 are also not especially noteworthy. Only Kick The Can, Fortune Cookies, and website can't be reasoned away. pom pom (see: explosions), pizza joint (pun), Rap Song (fire is a common visualization of ichy toes; see: every tinactin commerical), yes, wrestling (Wrestling pyro is not out of the ordinary)Flashfight 03:29, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
This needs more than two opposing contributors. I'm tagging it TBD to inspire discussion -Flashfight 08:57, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

When a common item such as fire appears enough times, I think we're justified in having an article on the subject. I'd like to see the article organized something like OptimisticFool suggested, so that we can better spot patterns in its use. Keep.It's dot com 07:27, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I can see the merit in this page, without objection I'll be taking down the TBD in a day or so, unless someone beats me too it. Flashfight 07:31, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

To be fair, I made no suggestion on how this article could be organized; credit for that would have to be given to Flashfight. OptimisticFool 07:21, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
