Ball's Back In Your Court, Lava Grillers

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Green. Why use a barbecue grill to make burgers? How about putting the grill on a pole while it's flaming. You lean back and balance the pole upright on your chest. In Wales, this stunt is known as The Burning Brushes of Beelzebub. And 34-year-old Russel Erwood pulled it off. He also juggled daggers blindfolded and made golden coins disappear. With that he became the resident jester in a small town that hadn't had one for 700 years. His official title isn't jester; it's town fool. It's MORNING EDITION.
