Have you ever been camping and wondered how some folks can create roaring fires in no time at all, while others can't seem to get past lighting the match? Or, lighting multiple matches. Well, now you know the secret, "belly-button lint".
Actually, this gag was inspired by a different type of lint. Both my boys were in Boy Scouts and the secret to lighting a fire quickly on campouts was "dryer lint". Yes, that's right. If you are planning on camping this summer and want to start your campfire fast and easy, just add some dryer lint to your stack of twigs and small sticks. Also, if you want it to really catch on fast, place your twigs in a teepee design and place a handful of dryer lint smack dab in the middle of the teepee. Light your match and touch it to the dryer lint. The dryer lint will ignite immediately and quickly spread to the sticks and twigs. Works every time. So save that lint you pull off from your dryer lint screen and put it to good use the next time you go camping. Better yet, prior to going on your campout, make a bet with your friends as to who can create a fire the fastest. With dryer lint, you'll win every time.
I thought it being the middle of a steamy hot summer, this gag would be most appropriate. I hope you get a chuckle from it. If you feel up to it, let me know what you think.
