    Talking man uses lighter to siphon gas .......BOOM

    Man gets burned while using lighter to siphon gas


    The Associated Press
    MUKWONAGO, Wis. - Police said a man was arrested after he used a cigarette lighter while trying to siphon gasoline from a van. Police said the man tried to siphon the gas with help from another woman, but he couldn't see how much gas was in the container, so he used the lighter to check.
    A blast of fire burned his hands and caused nearby residents to call police.

    I remember reading a few years ago about a man that was attempting to siphon gas out of a camper and accidently put his hose in the sewage tank - he was easily aprehended vomiting at the scene.

    I read that too! If I remember correctly, the man was not charged in the attempted theft. The owner of the RV said it was the best laugh he'd had in a very long time. :-)
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
