They didn't get their knickers in a twist...ed pair!
A village in Lincolnshire was cut off after a low flying thong wedged itself on power lines. The skimpy black smalls had been attached to a helium balloon which had become entangled in a power line supplying the village of Leadenham. Locals suggested they may have escaped from the local Polo clubs summer ball. Whilst the …
An article about knickers involving the phrase brown-out? its just asking for trouble ... still, here goes:
If you sense that you might be in a brown-out sitaution, check immediately for the presence of knickers and get them off as soon as posible.
Would you be so kind as to pass my coat? .. thanks.
Well since it said they were sopping wet, and water is able to conduct to some degree as evidenced by for example the instructions not to use water extinguishers on electrical fires... Seems fairly plausible to me. Not sure that the mylar balloon would be able to entangle itself around the pylon while still inflated.
Still confused as to how the hell they got on that balloon though.
Best travel advice for Leadenham is similar to that I was given for the village of Queen Adelaide.
Take a brick with you.
1. When you tire of talking to the locals, you can hold a worthwhile conversation with the Brick.
2. If you stand on it you might be able to see somewhere more interesting.
Mine's the one with a brick in each pocket.
<<My, I didn't even know VW drivers had summer balls>>
Canteen in Nokia Finland once offered - in Greengrocer's apostrophe-laden English - "Fish's Balls". Didn't know they had them, either.
Declined, natch. I prefer:
Yellow Maggot Custard
Green phlegm pie
Leg of Toad,
Worms on toast (Spread on thick)
All washed down with a cup of cold sick.
On second thoughts, I'll take the fish's balls. Less fattening, you understand.
I think we need to go down and check the polo clubs top totty, and look for one with no underwear.
And the top totty is obviously up for it, because i cant think of a single top totty who would bring a "spare" pair of knickers, unless it was a toff and his mistress is now missing 1 deluxe knickers
of course it might be a fat totty, because power lines are quite far apart, and unless the string caused the short in which case it was ballon carrying knickers of top totty caused brownout then the knickers would be of considerable size, in which case NO pictures please.
Paris - because her smalls always hit the floor.
