    I also seriously think a simple forest fire would turn a human family into ashes, unless they were cut out of a cardboard box.

    Yeah we would all catch on fire like that if we were immobile or made of paper

    Even the Ad Council's recent PSA with Smokey Bear, "Fuse," doesn't compare to the extreme terror-bone tickling of this one...
