Polish man mistakes hot iron for mobe

MY FACE! MY BEAUTIFUL FACE!

The scenario sounds familiar: your significant other heads out, so you decide to relax with some sport on the tellie, a beer and, because you don't want to be found out as a total layabout, out comes the iron to press a shirt or two.

That's just what Polish man Thomas Paczkowski decided to do, with boxing his chosen sport. All went very well until, according to local news service Fakt.pl, his phone rang.

At that moment Paczkowski reached for the item closest to hand, picked it up and pressed it to his ear.

You can guess the rest, or see it in this entirely non-gruesome picture of a bandage-swathed Paczkowski, who required medical attention after his error.

He's since sworn off watching boxing on the tellie, but says he's still up for a spot of ironing.

Sadly Fakt.pl doesn't say where Paczkowski resides. If it did, we'd happily send him a list of nearby dry cleaners. ®
