A man saves the day by smothering a fire with his aunt’s big panties.

John Marsey and his cousin Darren Lines were cooking when the food caught fire.

Quick-thinking Lines grabbed his aunt’s big knickers from the laundry pile and soaked them with water then threw them over the flames according to Britain’s Cleveland Fire Brigade.

Lines saved the kitchen — but his aunt’s drawers were scorched.

An anonymous firefighter said the general principle of using a large, wet cloth to cover a grease fire was a sound one. When asked if panties are the best choice, “Clearly it depends on what size you are — but I don’t want to go there.”

(Special thanks to “Drunken Bob” being our Vanna White in the big panties story).

  1. Now, you know, Steadycat, the actual panties died in the fire. The lovely Bob stepped up with the understudy panties. 😉

    • Hi, Katie! 🙂

      My great-grandma had a housekeeper that would have fit in those babies. She’d do her laundry with ours and I’d just stare in disbelief when she’d pull her panties out of the pile and fold!
