On the contrary. I would imagine that precooked meat would probably make her job easier. Very thoughtful.
2006-03-27 11:39:49 AM  
Exactly. Dinner is served!

Try the flaming burka burka.
2006-03-27 11:40:43 AM  
The headline is correct. Everyone knows that he should have doused himself in sweet and sour sauce.
2006-03-27 11:47:58 AM  
Mmmm... self-roasted husband...
2006-03-27 11:49:12 AM  
I am curious as to how exactly he got inflammable fluid to burn.
2006-03-27 11:49:48 AM  
Nevermind, I used a farking dictionary and learned something today.
2006-03-27 11:49:51 AM  
Prolly seemed reasonable at the time.

Worked for Vietnam
2006-03-27 11:50:20 AM  
My wife is a vegetarian. I doubt this would work on her either.
2006-03-27 11:50:54 AM  
I thought Buddhists didn't eat meat!

/reference to the monks who set themselves aflame as a form of protest, in before "lol, it dunt say hez boodhist"

Anytime I see a headline like this I know it took place in: a)India b)Africa or c)Pakistan

The winner this time is A. Nice work Indian moran
2006-03-27 11:52:29 AM  
Sounds like there's meat for the whole block now.
2006-03-27 11:52:30 AM  
Was pudding involved?

/curry that beef
2006-03-27 11:52:36 AM  
He was a raging alcoholic who had not worked in years. 50 bucks says his wife was relieved to be rid of his ass.
2006-03-27 11:52:45 AM  
Trouble was, he kept going out, so she had to keep re-lighting him.
2006-03-27 11:53:19 AM  
What he really wanted was the pudding afterward.
2006-03-27 11:53:21 AM  
Threatening to light HER on fire would work much better, IMHO.
2006-03-27 11:53:24 AM  
doused his body with an inflammable liquid

inflammable as opposed to flammable? wouldn't inflammable be a liquid like water? okay.. what did i miss?
2006-03-27 11:54:06 AM  
Ya beat me to the wall. Good show.

"Sixty-year-old Mithailal Ram Sanjivan doused his body with an inflammable liquid and set himself ablaze..."

/what made him burn?
2006-03-27 11:55:23 AM  
Inflammable means flammable? What a country!
2006-03-27 11:55:38 AM  
who knew inflammable meant flammable?

2006-03-27 11:55:42 AM  

1. Easily ignited and capable of burning rapidly; flammable. See Usage Note at flammable.
2. Quickly or easily aroused to strong emotion; excitable.


Easily ignited and capable of burning rapidly; inflammable.
2006-03-27 11:56:24 AM  
Well done, article subject.
2006-03-27 11:56:33 AM  
Sanjivan locked [his wife] in the house before setting himself on fire outside

Hmmm, they install doorlocks backward in Indian homes?
2006-03-27 11:56:51 AM  
Is it wrong that I laughed myself silly over the headline?

Is it wrong that I knew before I RTFA that it was India?

Am I going to Hell?
2006-03-27 11:56:52 AM  
Oh, forgot the usage note:

Usage Note: Historically, flammable and inflammable mean the same thing. However, the presence of the prefix in- has misled many people into assuming that inflammable means not flammable or noncombustible. The prefix -in in inflammable is not, however, the Latin negative prefix -in, which is related to the English -un and appears in such words as indecent and inglorious. Rather, this -in is an intensive prefix derived from the Latin preposition in. This prefix also appears in the word enflame. But many people are not aware of this derivation, and for clarity's sake it is advisable to use only flammable to give warnings.

I get the feeling most of these "strange stories" from India, Africa and Russia are just made up for the purpose of getting linked to by sites like fark.
2006-03-27 11:59:06 AM  
maybe he read "inflamable" and got confused. it was obviously an accident. i smell lawsuit.
2006-03-27 12:00:47 PM  
ok, Buddhist monk jokes already done. i would like to point out that HE IS NOT MUSLIM (or Buddhist either for that matter...). ignorant farkers.
2006-03-27 12:06:40 PM  
Irritated by this, Sanjivan locked her in the house before setting himself on fire outside.

I doubt if she tried very hard to go outside and stop him. Reminds me of the Polish family who almost starved to death when they locked themselves in the car.

/have Polish wife. get no sex for a while when I tell that joke
2006-03-27 12:09:30 PM  
well at least what little money they had will go further now.

A definition of "inflammable"(pops) for the ignorant.
2006-03-27 12:16:41 PM  
Somehow, I don't think you thought your cunning plan all the way through.
2006-03-27 12:17:36 PM  
Simpsons link

For those who didnt catch the simpsons reference and seriously think that people think inflammable means not flamable.
2006-03-27 12:18:14 PM  
Glad to see I'm not the only one to think of
2006-03-27 12:19:16 PM  
At his funeral, they plan to play "On top of Old Smokey"
2006-03-27 12:28:19 PM  
Of course he's not a muslim, he only killed himself without trying to take out innocent bystanders or supposed enemies of his 'one true path'.

Here's a tip kids, if your religion only has one god it's not going to be very imaginative.

mmm... cooked meat...
2006-03-27 12:30:16 PM  
Is it a new fark cliche to spell moron as "moran" or do that many people just not know the difference?
2006-03-27 12:31:23 PM  

I'll bet she's REALLY sorry now! That'll show her!
2006-03-27 12:37:30 PM  

I see you're relatively new here...

See Fark Cliches (wikipedia)

"Moran": Misspelling of moron, referring to a well-known picture of a redneck holding two signs saying "Get a brain! Morans" and "Go USA", in response to anti-war activists protesting the US invasion of Iraq.
