A man was burned inside his rental car after he tried to kill the bedbugs populating it with alcohol, then lit a cigarette, setting the vehicle ablaze Tuesday afternoon outside an Eastport supermarket, police said.

Better than bedbugs, anyway.

I saw that on the news this morning.


All together now:

"What could possibly have gone wrong?!"

And a side note to Newsday: Be straightforward and charge a content fee if you want (which I will probably decline), but I'm not clicking stupid survey links that install cookies/spyware/etc. to read a one-time story.

I often wonder why my friends don't burst into flames when they light up; they are usually populated with alcohol as well.

It's not his fault! His flamethrower was in for repair.

Just put in some tarantulas to eat the bedbugs. Then some pythons to eat the tarantulas.

I blame the cheap motel he stayed at.

But this guy was a "firebug"....bwhahaha....

Next time, don't decline the insurance.

No deposit, no return.

Something tells me that with that proof of alcohol the car probably wouldn't have come back unscathed anyway.
