    Default House wrecked as man kills weeds with flame thrower

    House wrecked as man kills weeds with flame thrower

    BERLIN (AFP) – A German gardener's house was left a smouldering wreck on Friday after he set it on fire while trying to get rid of the weeds with the help of a flame-thrower, police said.

    After accidentally setting his hedge alight, the 54-year-old's garden shed was soon also engulfed in flames and despite efforts to extinguish the fire with a garden hose, the blaze spread to the roof of the house.

    Seven firemen were needed to put out the blaze in Tangstedt near Hamburg in northern Germany, which occurred on Thursday. Police said the house was now uninhabitable.

    Flame-throwers are used widely in agriculture and also in gardening, but generally only for removing weeds from between cracks in paving in driveways and patios.
    [On the House Un-American Activities Committee] "They'll nail anyone who ever scratched his ass during the National Anthem."- Humphrey Bogart
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done".- George Carlin
    "I just think people should be very free with sex. They should draw the line at goats." - Elton John
    "I'm just trying to figure out why you don’t have any clothes on," the deputy said.

    "Me too," Krauss replied.

    When I first saw this thread I was thinking it should be in the Only in Florida.

    We don't need flamethrowers, the heat alone kills the weeds.

    Adam Carolla used to have a bit on his radio show where they'd read a news story about some dumb-ass pulling stunts like the one mentioned above.

    The name of the bit?
    "Florida or Germany".

    sounds like an idea for an episode of Home Improvement where Tim rigs up a super duty weed killer.

    Either that, or something Red Green would try.

    I'll never feel like a real man again using a pathetic little squirt bottle of round up..

    I'll explain to my wife later that seeing how I'm half German, I will require a flame thrower for the driveway. I'll throw it out there like that and see how it sits.

    With all the talk of weeding and flamethrowers, it puts a whole new spin on this commercial!
