I don't know what a firelighter is, but apparently, someone in South Africa will build a factory for me, for not much money

Not ironic. It would be ironic if the factory spontaneously combusted while giving a fire safety presentation

Factories catch on fire all the time, not Ironic

If people actually submitted truthful, factual, non-trollbait headlines, Fark would be like a desert, no page clicks, no ad revenue

Would it be ironic if you DIAF?

Apparently, a firelighter is something that's used to start fires, not to fight them, according to this article: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/119525-firelighting-block-factory-cat c hes-fire-in-netherlands/

It also says that the cause of the fire is still under investigation.  Gee, maybe having a bunch of flammable materials around the place might be related.

On the positive side, the product testing department reports good results.

Name a word that start with "f" and ends in "uck".

Well at least being in the netherlands the firefighters had winmills to keep them cool.

AW, FiretrUCK!!
 
2013-06-20 03:26:23 PM
It would be ironic is the fire was started by a firetruck.

This is like rain on a wedding day.
 
2013-06-20 03:31:37 PM
How is it ironic? They build firetrucks. You know, mechanics? They don't fight the fires.

THATS NOT IRONY!

Um...the story says "Blaze destroys firelighter factory in the Netherlands"

"Firelighter are small solid fuel tablets sold as a consumer product and designed to replace kindling in starting a fire."

So, it would be like a fire at a lighter fluid factory here in the States.

/no firetrucks inside
 
2013-06-20 03:43:56 PM
They don't build fire trucks, they make firelighters, things that are used to start fires.

for the confused,, the factory was making these sort of BBQ fire-starter-lets-make-everything-taste-like-gasoline-cubes.

They worked.

The Incredible Sexual Egg: Not ironic. It would be ironic if the factory spontaneously combusted while giving a fire safety presentation


CSB:  My senior year in highschool, someone kept on pulling the fire alarms and calling in bomb scares.  The Principle had enough of it and invited the fire cheif an inspector over for a visit.  In order to make sure they weren't interupted during their meeting, he turned off the fire alarms in the school.  Wouldn't you know it, that was the day the school caught on fire!

Every fire alarm in that part of the school was pulled, and no alarm sounded.

Doesn't exactly count for irony, but it was funny as hell.

The worst part was all the spoons everybody was tripping over.

How many died when they couldn't get out through the chained emergency exits?

Guadior42: How many died when they couldn't get out through the chained emergency exits?


You know, I'm not for the death penalty in many cases, but when events like that happen, I feel summary execution of the person who ordered the chaining of the doors is in order.

Is the ironic tag a scandal yet?
 
2013-06-20 06:16:27 PM
A firelighter is something that actually helps a fire start so...this is totally Alanis "Ironic" (as in not at all)
 
2013-06-20 06:49:27 PM
Oh sweet irony you are so evasive.

Maybe...MAYBE...if water used to fight a fire burned then perhaps we have a little irony going on...must not end a sentence with a preposition...thus.

\What the fark was that?
 
2013-06-20 07:32:06 PM
If there were only some way to put out a fire.  Maybe a vehicle of some kind.

"These things are amazing. Check this out. Just one could burn down this whole building."
