    I figured It would be good to have a thread devoted to just fireplace humor.

    I will start off with a few pictures I found on the internet....

    My favorite is the 3rd pic. 1st because they were concerned about draft or ground movements since they taped all the joints, but 2nd because that's the best use of one of those boxwood stoves that I've seen yet.

    I bet you could smoke a lot of sausage in there :shut:

    For those who have everything - the walk-in wood stove.

    The last one looks like a smoker to me. Guy down the street has one and it's actually kind of the same design, just all homebuilt.

    We always wanted to paint the room darker, but we'll just move the stove around the room instead.

    Found on a home inspection forum:


    This is at the top of the firebox in a wood stove. Can anyone help me with the correct terminology for addressing this situation? Thanks.

    Umm - "It's broke."

    Honey - have you noticed the draft is a little lazy lately?

    This one looks more like a SMOKER than a HEATER. I would NOT want to eat that smoked fish. Yuck...
