When in the Wrong Flame of Mind...

Like a hole in the head, like an old Onion link, like an outburst of cholera, MetaFilter needs these custom-made Flames. But some of them are hilarious. And anyway, as has been posted before, we didn't start the fire. [Flash needed for this latter golden oldie. Via Linkfilter. NSFW.]

Neither of the first two links worked for me, both gave connection refused errors :P

Yeah, they seem to have been MeFied. The second link was to one particular flame - the "Buy a Vowel" one. What can I say? The URLS are OK, both links worked well for me. Try again later - they're definitely worth seeing!

I think metafilter needs these custom flames (self link). And I'm not the only one...

(Sorry if redundant; I can't see the site either.)

I couldn't see the site either.

But thanks for posting the "We Didn't Start The Fire" link. I had been looking for that.

Kittens, monkeys--these are like the South Park/Bizzaroworld version of those posters with like a cat hanging off a tree that say "Hang in there!"

Also, does anyone know for certain where this one started? There's a certain local coffee house with this posted on the wall by their espresso machine...
