Just heard about the guy who attempted to put a torch out that had rolled under the car by stamping on it. Seems it had a big nail in it that went straight through his foot. And was red hot! Ouch!!!

That was lucky. A red hot nail will be thoroughly sterile.

Burnt toast torches tend to be nailed on I believe, but as my learned friend DFL says above, proper torches have wire. I am also pretty sure that paraffin doesn't burn hot enough to heat metal up to red hot.
I have a sneaky feeling that this story and the contents of Grunge's last post have something in common - ie. they exist only in the imagination of the respective writers - but I could be wrong.

Original story came from A&E Nurse so is not made up. Head of torch was in the gutter by the car and the 'victim' was trying to extinguish it fully to protect the car.
As to the red hot nail - chances are it had cooled down by the time it was seen by others - whatever the temp it caused a burn and some not-inconsiderable pain by all accounts.

Why do people leave cars so near to the processions? Always amazes me. And by the way, it's not just hessian and wire torches that can be called "proper"!!

You are quite right torch bearer, I think South Street still make torches with tow.

Why did he not just pick it up and move it away from the car!!!!
