I have often repeated the phrase: ‘Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it!’ Well today I did get what I asked for.
I was looking for something to smile or laugh about, and I hope you can hear me right now. My eyes need wipers on the fast speed.
While checking through the 83 subscriptions in my Google Reader I came across this beauty from Guardian Unlimited.
A large pair of knickers saved the day in northern England after they were used to smother a household kitchen fire.
Jenny Marsey’s size 18-20 cotton briefs were used to put out a frying pan fire, which started when an extractor fan fell on the cooker while her son and nephew were frying some bread at the house in Hartlepool.

Jenny aged 53, said the blue cotton knickers were from Marks & Spencer, and were a few years old.
“I call them my emergency ones,” said Jenny 53 and the mother of four. “They’re the ones you wear when you’ve run out of all your others!”
These M&S Knickers were good enough for Margaret Thatcher and Bridget Jones!
Do you think if I got some I might have more success with the Toyboys
