back to article Livid woman torches ex-hubby's wedding tackle

A Moscow man who ill-advisedly decided to sit watching telly in the nude in the flat he shared with his ex-missus earned himself a wedding-tackle-torching for his trouble, the Evening Standard reports.

    I guess next time he'll take her seriously when she yells, "I swear to God, Vladimir, put that thing away or I'll set it on fire!"

    Hmm... What was on TV?

    Was he watching Hot Rod racing at the time? Perhaps he had been practising his german; I say dear, "ich habe ein brennendes steifes".. whilst watching some "WhatBoysWant" vids and his ex misses got the hump and decided to take his comment as a request!

    He described it as "Mosntrously Painful", well now we know.

    I wonder if Mrs Boris in a fit of remorse is going to offer to apply the savlon? (picture scenes from a singing detective with Joanne Whalley).

    A song springs to mind.

    "Come on baby light my fire"

    Ok let's think

    Let's think about whether this is a good idea. Over there sits my ex-wife. Let me go ahead and take all my clothes off, and then sit here naked in from of the TV with my giant gut, and to top it off, I'll sip some Vodka. Preferably when she's got a date coming. think she'll be offended???

    Dirty bastard deserved what he got.

    Women be warned!

    There are many over-the-counter products that can be surreptitiously applied to certain women's undergarments that cover certain parts of a woman's anatomy that will induce (over a short time) an overwhelming desire to remove such undergarments immediately. In great haste. No matter the current company.

    While not physically scarring like fire on a "stick", the target of revenge being stuck on an airliner or some other suitably confined space and being forced to disrobe in public because her nether regions were on fire.....Priceless.

    oh nasty...

    I'd put some deep heat on that.

    is that my coat?

    Another song springs to mind

    "My Old Flame"

    Far more appropriate, as three years on she's still carrying a torch for him. How romantic ^^

    'Men rule the world for a reason.'

    WOW, and I just wanted to say what a bang up job you guys are doing.

    So good in fact that perhaps you should move on to being some sort of powerless figurehead and let people who know what they are doing run it instead.

    Or anyone else really...

    I wouldn't bandy about statements like that unless you want to start a wave of incidents similar to this one.

    Just maybe he should get to do the equivalent to her in retribution? I'm always one for "an eye for an eye" punishments. You know.....funnel some petrol down her chuff and then lob in a match?

    He *didn't* deserve it?

    So if you were watching telly in the nude would you deserve to have your genitalia set on fire? Really? You actually think that?

    What was on TV

    Maybe he was watching Dr Who

    And she preferred "Torchwood"

    Priceless - fell off me stool laughing.

    Just trying to picture it now.....

    Is Spike Ravenscroft...

    A man or a woman? "you guys"? Never heard Spike used as a woman's name before, maybe I'm just being naive but I call shenanigans.

  22. James

    Although I bet he wishes she wasn't

    I guess after all these years she was still carrying a flame for him.

    For Iain Cartledge

    Yes, believe it or not, I am a woman and I read the Register and my name is Spike.

    *gasp* Yes folks, all of the above are true.

    Everybody happy now?
