The Duff Tufty Club

Far be it from me to stick up for happy slappers, but a recent story in Metro tickled me:
"A video showing laughing youngsters spraying lighter fuel on a friend's bare bottom before setting it alight provoked outrage yesterday. Footage of the stunt carried out by a self-confessed 'idiot squad' was posted on website YouTube in the 'entertainment' category" ('"Buttocks on fire" video condemned, Metro 22 November 2006, p.7).

Quite rightly, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents called the action "absolutely ridiculous". But surely there was nothing accidental about it, and RoSPA is extending its brief here.
