Three theories about why somebody was burning a couch in Boulder

The Boulder Daily Camera has the baffling news that Boulder firefighters had to extinguish a flaming couch late Monday night, right in the middle of the college-kid social area of College Avenue.

Why? We can only guess that it was:

  • Someone really excited about the start of classes next week
  • Someone really excited about Boulder’s Jenny Simpson winning bronze (The main problem with this theory is that she won on Tuesday night)
  • Someone really mad about breast milk facials

Correction: This post earlier said the couch fire was Tuesday night. It was Monday night.
