how did you get "stoke the fire" from that? i see "wood" inside "fire"...
Aug 26, 2002

ie. to put wood on the fire means to stoke the fire.

stoke Pronunciation Key (stk)
v. stoked, stokĀ·ing, stokes
v. tr.
To stir up and feed (a fire or furnace).

i just dont get it to be honest.... someone want to explain???

Vinx, don't be too worried about it. This is one I wish I'd never submitted ;P. It was one of my first. But for your sake here is an explanation of the rubbish that was swirling in my head when I wrote it.


See how the WOOD is in the fire ie. it had to have been put there, and to put wood on a fire is to 'stoke the fire'. I hope that's clear?

Once I read the explanation and thought about it, I like it. I think it is clever.
