Hey, do you guys remember the movie Backdraft? It was about firemen, and I think they were sexy, and Donald Sutherland was pretty good in it, but not as good as he usually is, and Robert DeNiro was in it too, and there was a lot of coughing and crying, I think?

It's completely unnecessary, and Mirman, like myself, recalls very little from the original movie. I don't think I've laughed this hard since I won that Laughing Contest at the 1987 Ohio State Fair. Take that, three-time Giggle Champion Maynerd Ferbenberger of Akron!
