Funny Story

I worked and lived at a remote hot spring resort in a small cabin behind the restaurant on the property.  One night, I woke up to a loud bang and peeked out my window to see the restaurant was smoking and on fire.  It turns out, a bear broke into the restaurant, ignited the stove pilot, and was dining inside.  The loud bang was 5lb cans of spaghetti sauce bursting under the heat.
