A 65-year-old woman died and two others were injured in a fire at a match factory at Kolakattakuruchi near Sankarankovil here today.

She called the fire department, but by the time she finished telling them the name of the town, the building had burnt down.

In other words, she went on strike.

Reminds me of the story of the Oshkosh fire. Ages ago, they had a hopping and booming lumber industry. They paved the streets in sawdust.

Then, one year, they opened a Diamond Match factory.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Plan me no plans
I'm in no rush
Maybe I've learned
Playing with matches
A girl can get burned
So,
Bring me no ring
Groom me no groom
Find me no find
Catch me no catch
Unless he's a matchless match.

Tirunelveli (TN), Dec 25 (PTI) A 65-year-old woman died and two others were injured in a fire at a match factory at Kolakattakuruchi near Sankarankovil

I knew Tennessee was weird, but those city names are just insane.

A tragic story, no doubt. I would give a good amount to have been a fly on the wall when the news desk was copying down details of this and trying to keep a straight face.

Unlucky strike.

I thought they were a Christian website.

I refuse to sit on a pile of matches.

Am I the only one that finds it sad a 65 year old woman was working on Christmas Day ?
And who uses matches anymore ?
 
2012-12-26 04:10:47 AM
That's just plain retardant.
 
2012-12-26 04:59:53 AM
I bought a box of badly made matches at the dollar store and they were from India. Maryland Match company, my ass...It's sad about the woman, but those matches broke in half and flew apart while striking so often she's probably not the only person they caught on fire. If they were from that factory it wouldn't be a bad thing for them to close.

It was in India. I doubt she celebrated Christmas.

And I take matches along when camping, just in case. But I suspect a lot of Indians who smoke use matches instead of lighters.

Perhaps they should have checked which way that set of matches was pointing.

Bloody heathen foreigners must not grasp the concept of how matches work?

Weird baseball game. One strike and your out.
