An unusual incident occurred at eleventeen twelve am this morning when Mrs Fanny Ablaze demonstrated that her name was meaningful.
She had been late for her train, and had slid down the escalator bannister to save time, but the friction had created static electricity, causing the illumination of a fairy light hanging on an incredibly long pubic hair. The light immediately shorted out, and a blaze ensued.
Mrs Ablaze felt it necessary to explain that Americans and British were not related, and not even of the same species, proven by the fact that the Brits have the fanny at the front, whereas the Americans have theirs at the back.
Although the flames had been extinguished without too much damage being done, a further disaster occurred when the stretcher bearers heard how the fire had started. They laughed so much that they dropped the stretcher on which Fanny was being carried, causing a broken ankle and two bruised ribs, for which Fanny was rushed to hospital.
When interviewed in her hospital bed, Fanny said "The moral of this story is - check your fairy lights before you leave home"
