A debate between a Douglas Fir and a Lincoln Log would be more intelligent.

And by “modified”, they mean replacing that DFH Lincoln with a second, louder copy of Douglas.

Actually, they should just run it as a telethon – whoever can huck the most books before time runs out is declared the WINNAR!

So I’m guessing the over/under would be 9.
