A notch below belly fire

Last class yesterday night, Paul and I were reading an article in his book about the biggest fire in the history of Yellowstone, which burnt 1.2 million acres of the park.

Paul read this line and burst out laughing.

"What's so funny?" I asked.

"Oh Teacher..." he howled. "1.2 million arses burn to the ground?"
