a scorcher in the w.c.

in Silly stuff and bluster

This photo was taken in the staff restroom at work. Those are scorch marks (not soot) on the wall next to the commode; you can see for yourself if you click the second image, which is an enlargement of the boxed area in picture one.  Sorry for the poor quality; I received some odd looks when I went in with camera equipment.


I inquired as to the health and well-being of all my co-workers.  Everybody seemed to be walking and sitting normally, and nobody was willing to admit to producing these strange, fiery marks on the wall.  Not via an uncomfortable intestinal ailment, not via some odd combustible ritual.  It remains someone’s burning secret.

How can I put this delicately?

Do you suppose someone has been "lighting the gas"?

Hmmm — interesting ….

First farting birds, now strange bathroom shots! Hmm, can we say your blog has been going down the drain?

No one's fessing up, huh?

I was just flushed with the success of the little farter story…

I think you might want to consider applying for a homeland security grant to thwart this type of terrorist activity in the future.

I'd have an electrician check the wiring if I were you… It looks like it could be caused by something dangerous happening inside the wall.

Maybe it's someone's hair dryer on the MAX setting.

If so, I wonder what hair they were drying!
