If I’ve heard this story once, I’ve heard it a million times: Man irons clothes. Man hears phone ring. Man presses iron to ear.
“Hello? Oh, #%&@!”
According to the bastion of hard-hitting journalism, The Sun, Tomas Paczkowski of Poland (*RESISTING URGE TO MAKE EASY POLITICALLY INCORRECT JOKE HERE*) wanted to show his wife that he was just as good around the house as she was. The Einstein of Housework tells the paper that:
“Women are always going on about multi-tasking, so I set up the iron, opened a beer and put the boxing on the telly. Trouble was, I got so involved in the boxing that I wasn’t really thinking about what I was doing. So when the phone rang I picked up the iron by mistake and pressed it to my ear.”
But wait! It gets even more Three’s Company-esque. The paper states:
“Tomas then added insult to injury when he ran to the bathroom to put cold water on the burn only to run into the door,” giving him a black eye. Medics say he will make a full recovery, but is off housework duty for now.
Hmpf. The lengths some men will go to, I tell ya, just to get out of some lousy housework. On the bright side, the left side of Tomas’ face is totally wrinkle-free!
