Whoops - Bart Simpson To Blame?


Bit of a cock-up at the wonderfully named Mad River Power Plant in Springfield, Ohio, when the 90 metre tower fell the wrong way when being demolished.

Police are looking for a small boy with yellow skin and an attitude problem.

Where's Fred Dibnah when you need him?

Fred wouldn't have used explosives, he'd have pulled each brick out manually and then lit a fire to drop it perfectly into the space he wanted.

Fred was a class act and not inclined to waste money!

As long as they are all wearing their hard hats they'll be fine?!?!

I don't remember Fred Dibnah wearing a hard hat - unless his old flat cap had been specially modified.

Wouldn't have been much use if he'd buggered off a 200ft chimney in any case...

I've just seen a link to the video at WUWT. The frightening thing is that the film crew were underneath the 12,500 volt power lines and damn nearly got hit by them as they snapped....
