As they crackle and blaze on the hearth, hippie socialists are full of sap, ask 'em about global climate change. You'll get all the hot air you need.
Your chatting about tossing some socialists into the fire reminded me about a tale I read (years ago) about how the railroads in Egypt used to toss mummies into the firebox of their steam locomotives to keep the boilers hot enough to generate steam to run the train. I think this was somewhere around the late 1800's to the early 1900's.
