    Default Girl burned when cellphone catches fire in pants.....

    I can see all kinds of one liners coming from this one.....


    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/West/07/0...one/index.html

    (CNN) -- A 16-year-old California girl suffered second degree burns Thursday when her cell phone caught fire in her back pocket, according to the Ontario Fire Department.

    The teenager was volunteering at an Ontario youth recreation center when witnesses heard a loud "whooshing" sound, said Frank Huddleston, a fire department investigator.

    Huddleston said the victim didn't even know what was happening, and witnesses said they thought it was fireworks.

    Witness then saw her pocket explode with smoke and fire, he said.

    The girl was in a kitchen and near a pot of water, so the flames were quickly extinguished, Huddleston said.

    The victim was transported to Chino Valley Medical Center where she was treated and released with small second-degree burns to her right buttock.

    The phone is a Verizon Kyocera, but because of damage investigators could not tell the model number.

    Ontario is east of Los Angeles near San Bernardino.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    I'll leave the one-liners alone - they're not as much fun when they write themselves.

    On the serious side, there have been several stories like this out lately. Most of them seem to have been caused by poor quality counterfeit batteries. As bad as a burned buttock is, imagine it happening with the phone sitting in the seat of her car, on her bed in the middle of the night, etc.

    ...although the boiling water in the pot was the cause of the burns...

    stm4710, is that a proximity suit you have on? Just in case your phone catches fire.

    Wow, must have been some "hot" conversation
    229, you took the words right out of my mouth about the pot of water. That was my first thought.

    After the phone was extinguished, the girl's ex-boyfriend could still be heard on the line...."CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, BIATCH???!!!"
