Readers: Fanning the flames with hot answers to our David Sedaris contest

David Sedaris will be talking pretty at the Paramount tonight, and many of his fans did the same when they entered our contest to win two tickets to the David Sedaris appearance. The rules? To enter, you simply had to tell us what you would do "when engulfed in flames..."

Here are just some of the hot answers:

From Mikebdenver:

When engulfed in flames I would get the hell out of the gay bar and go to the Piggly Wiggly for some nutter butter cookies and an issue of the National Inquirer and head over to the trailerpark to visit my old friend from my caferia job days...

From DT Pennington:

Hug a package of hot dogs. #dinner

And from S:

I would mostly just hope that it was raining men that day.

Our winners were Trina Ross and Ian M. Belcurry, and even if you can't make tonight's show, you can enjoy their entries along with all the others here.
