The Full Monty Has a Lot to Answer For

Just look at the size of his chopper

From the BBC:

Firefighters mistaken for strip show
"A group of firefighters were mobbed by women who thought they were part of the act when they arrived to tackle a blaze during a strip show. Female fans clapped the firefighters at a pub in St Helens, Merseyside.

"One lady shouted, we have got our money's worth here," said watch manager Paul Costello.

The fire was accidentally started by a stripper using lighter fluid in his act. One person was hospitalised with smoke inhalation...."


God alone knows how these women react every time they see a pair of mall security guards, walk past a building site, or glance at muscular men trying on velcro-sided trousers. Wang-hungry northern slatterns out of their heads on Diamond White and black market Embassy Number Ones, the lot of them.

I need more details on what the stripper was doing with the lighter fluid.....

For what it's worth I've got a couple of friends who rush to any fire in NYC just to gawk at the firemen. They've even been known to sneek out of work if there's a fire in the neighborhood. I've been left at the bar while they run down the street after the fire truck.

Strippers in Aberdeen? What do they do: unzip their survival suits a little and show off their fleece jackets?
