Fiery passions erupted into floods of complaints about a TV show broadcast in Norway - about how best to stack firewood.
Norwegians apparently love to talk about wood. Burning wood, stacking wood, cutting down trees. You get the picture.
The TV show was shown to commemorate National Firewood Night - "because firewood is the foundation of our lives.”
Nowegians appear to be barking about bark.
“We received about 60 text messages from people complaining about the stacking in the program,” author Lars Mytting told the New York Times. Mytting's bestselling book inspired the show.
“Fifty percent complained that the bark was facing up, and the rest complained that the bark was facing down.”
“One thing that really divides Norway is bark.”
The non-complaining viewers were happy to sit back and enjoy the show. One viewer commented: “I'm not being ironic. For some reason, this broadcast was very calming and very exciting at the same time.”
The Norwegians aren't the only nation that love a nicely stacked fire on TV. In the early days of Sky TV in the UK, German channel Super RTL regularly broadcast hours and hours of burning logs in a cost fireplace.
You can relive those magic broadcasting minutes in the video below. Mmmm, warming.
