Pest problem? Set fire to your house

Late news from dumb Britain - thanks to Kath for the link. For past posts about our attitude toward child-eating snakes, see here and also here.

A man has set fire to his house after trying to get rid of an ants nest by dousing it with petrol and lighting it. The incident...follows a similar blaze earlier this week in Bridgend, South Wales, when a man managed to start a fire at his home as he tried to kill a spider with an aerosol spray. South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue said....'the resident set light to the petrol, but the resulting fire spread to a garden hedge which burnt fiercely, melting plastic guttering, a plastic window frame and a garden chair.'"

"Using petrol to eliminate an ants nest has to be a first for us."

    1. Stupid people were put on this Earth to make the rest of us feel better about ourselves, so it's OK to chuckle....
