Power Play

Honey, They’re Playing Our Thong

A flying thong caused a power cut in the UK, affecting homes and businesses in the Lincolnshire village of Leadenham. The black thong, attached to a helium balloon, got stuck in power cables above a croquet lawn and caused a short circuit when it rained.

FOOTNOTE: Risque business.

This is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time, David! LOL!

Okay, do we want to know how or why a skimpy undergarment came to be attached to a helium balloon?

People do some damned strange things don't they?

Maybe it was just done for shock value.

One wonders if perhaps there was a body attached to said thong when it went airborne...it's the Cop in me...suspicious, you know? I'm just saying...

I am really in stitches over this one!
I suppose there are worse thing that could be attached to a Helium balloon..... but a thong.....!
Wonder who lost it or (who would admit to losing it!)

Where do you find these, David? Do have slaves searching the press of the world? Gnomes beavering away till the small hours? This is so funny and I love the comments your snippets elicit.

Up up and away...to infinity and beyond.

Hilarious, David! What goes up, must come down. Imagine the surprise of the one who finds it.

Oh, I can only laugh!!!! Why would someone attach a thong to a balloon? NEVER mind! I don't want to know!
