A neophyte ironer learns
Avoiding the danger of burns
Is always a goal
When taking that role.
(Amid other pressing concerns.)

That's not ironic. Ironic is when you're covered in iron.
 
2010-03-23 12:10:14 PM  
Best use of tag today
 
2010-03-23 12:13:48 PM  
It's like goldy and bronzy, only it's made of iron.
 
2010-03-23 12:13:57 PM  
The ironing is delicious
 
2010-03-23 12:14:25 PM  
How is that ironi... ohhhhh
 
2010-03-23 12:15:41 PM  
Use of Ironic tag in this story = WIN

/not the first to say so
//had to say it anyway

Ironic: the best extreme ironers are all men. Ha! Decades and decades of head start granted and we still win.
 
2010-03-23 12:19:54 PM  
These people are idiots.
 
2010-03-23 12:20:14 PM  
Great, now women are playing extreme sports?


Kidding....

well played. in fact - that should have been the headline
 
2010-03-23 12:21:04 PM  
I have no concept of ironing.
 
2010-03-23 12:21:07 PM  
Save Ferrous.

Complain all you want, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better list.
 
2010-03-23 12:24:07 PM  
what a bunch of atention whores.

what's next ? vaccuming the dirt in the woods ?
 
2010-03-23 12:27:33 PM  
The Ironic tag today was probably found red-eyed and giggling madly over this.

covarde_anonimo what's next ? vaccuming the dirt in the woods ?

Brazilian Bungee.

Porous Horace: Brazilian Bungee.

Is that Brazilian Waxing Bungee?

If the goal as he said is to end up with a well pressed shirt... those ashats doing it skydiving, or underwater are definitely not doing it right.

\What a mind bogglingly stupid "sport"
 
2010-03-23 12:31:33 PM  
wow...just wow
 
2010-03-23 12:36:28 PM  
Jesus H farking christ. this was barely amusing in 1997. in 2010 it is just mind bendingly lame. Move on. there really is nothing to see here.

The woman ironing at the bottom of the Blue Hole is under 426 feet of water. That is really impressive.

For a chick.

/hot like an iron
 
2010-03-23 01:12:01 PM  
It's more of a sport than Major League Gaming. Next I propose Extreme Knitting, and Flaming Origami.
 
2010-03-23 01:13:46 PM  
Do the needful: Complain all you want, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better list.

It just steams me that this sport is being encouraged by in-creased traffic. It's just another way for board teenagers to put their lives at risk. I hope the cops collar them and treat them starchly.
 
2010-03-23 01:18:10 PM  
where are the vids of hot women ironing while being tag-teamed?
 
2010-03-23 01:21:17 PM  
Come on... I can't be the only one here who thinks this sounds bad-ass.
 
2010-03-23 01:22:57 PM  
It's a new wrinkle on sports. Or a sport that remove wrinkles. Either way, it's bad. I don't know laundering.
 
2010-03-23 01:26:53 PM  
another +1 for the tag.

Since the thrilling sport of extreme ironing was born in the United Kingdom

Why am I not surprised...
 
2010-03-23 06:55:31 PM  
Wow. Ya learn something every day. (Not that I really needed to know this "sport" existed.) People will do any damn thing for giggles, huh?

Oh man! I once tried to take an ironing board up a ski mountain in Quebec, to take a picture to submit to that website. I tried to hide behind my snowboard away from the gondola operator, but I swear as my friends and I got on I saw him laughing to himself. They didn't let me get off the gondola at the top, so I never got the picture :(.

In some ways it's better that way, though, because I get to imagine what extreme photo I would have taken, and avoid the inevitable disappointment of it not living up to my expectations.

mofomisfit: That's not ironic. Ironic is when you're covered in iron.

I thought it was when you gained or lost an electron?

This Looks Fun: Come on... I can't be the only one here who thinks this sounds bad-ass.

Yes, you can.
 
2010-03-24 12:37:27 AM  
So, basically, its mid level thrill sports with some shirt pressing thrown in for an element of danger?

prekrasno: This Looks Fun: Come on... I can't be the only one here who thinks this sounds bad-ass.

Yeah, I think you're right. I emailed some friends, trying to get some interest and got shot down like some Level 1 Duck Hunt.
