Bad Idea #2

Take an oil lamp. Light it. This oil lamp can not be tilted in any direction or the flame will “jump.” Which means that oil will pour out of the lamp in a stream of fire. Hand it to a puppeteer to hold over the head of two other puppeteers.

Now make it leak.

    The chances of me catching on fire were actually very, very slim. Someday, remind me to tell you about the show where I worked a puppet made out of rusty knives.

    And then had to run down stairs. In a mask.
