Man Stops For a Cig, Burns Up 11 Junked Cars

Forty-two-year-old Brian Hudson of County Mayo, Ireland apparently had a few pints and went to nick himself a new exhaust system for his car out of a junkyard. In the middle of the night. In a bout of wrecking-yard frustration, he paused for a cigarette, which he lit by lighting a piece of paper with a lighter he found in a car and then utilizing said burning paper to light his fag (we have no idea why he didn't just use the lighter). He discarded the piece of paper in the car, which then caught fire. Then the police showed up. Hudson ran, 11 cars burned. Remember, kids, you never know what can be flammable in a junkyard!
