Extreme hobbies

That body spray is hot. Really, really hot.

Gazette staff May 25th, 2011

Drinking, sex, fast cars … these hazards have been around since the beginning of time. (Or, at least since the great family musical “Grease.”) Apparently eager to provide fresh content for the Darwin Awards, young whippersnappers have found a new rebellion: setting themselves afire!

Yes, the new hot thing is fiery self-expression, according to a YouTube video (one of “dozens”) featured on Eager to demonstrate his technique, our exhibitionist young daredevil sprayed body mist in a zigzag pattern on one pant leg, then set it on fire, so it “looks all crazy and stuff.”

“The more you move around, the less it hurts,” the teenage torch said. That’s pretty much its own punch line.

Because CFN denounces all potentially lethal teenage rebellion (other than the all-American types “Grease” endorses), here’s our PSA: Kids, please don’t set yourselves on fire. Fire can burn you, m’kay?

Even more concerning to Chicken- Fried News than this asinine adolescent display is the revelation that body spray is so extremely flammable. (What is in that stuff?)

CFN intern Bucky is now concerned about any and all junior high dances going up in an apocalyptic ball of flames. Purposeful self-destruction is one tragic thing; accidental mass death by the sparks of young love is quite another.

It's a cheaper thrill than fast cars, drugs, and sex.  Unless you count the hospital/burial expenses.
