Ring Of Fire


I learn something new everyday!

Yesterday I learned from FACT OR CRAP Daily tear-off calendar that after Johnny Cash died a hemorrhoid cream offered his daughter Roseanne Cash to buy the right to use Johnny’s song “Ring of Fire” in a hemorrhoid cream commercial. She turned down the offer.

I ran a search for “Ring of Fire” and didn’t find much. I was hopping to find a ring of fire, maybe a volcano opening with red hot lava around the edges.

I also learned that an area in the Pacific is called The Ring of Fire because of the active volcanoes in the bordering the imaginary circle and within it. Alaska borders the northeastern part of the circle, it looks like Japan might be the border for the northwestern part.

Then I searched for hemorrhoid and was one site offered pictures of hemorrhoids for sale. Who would pay money for pictures of hemorrhoids and what would they do with them. Wait! I forgot the ex-Waffle House manager and his remote camera. He might be their best customer.

The ring above was the closest I found to a ring of fire.
Wait! Here is a better one (thanks to Michael Banes):

Suzanne,
I'm sorry, I didn't know I had any more replies. Adam gave us the Fact or Crap calendar.

Michael,
Thanks! As I just told Suzanne above, I didn't know I had any more replies. That is what I get for thinking. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
