A few days ago we told you about a New Jersey grandma who lit her hair on fire by lighting a cigarette immediately after spraying her head with Aquanet. Then we asked you to share the most embarrassing way you've burned yourself! Here's what you said:


  • Curling iron to the forehead
  • Curling eyelashes
  • Sticking a finger in the car's cigarette-lighter plug hole
  • Camp fire hi-jinks
  • Burned my butt cheeks while floating on my belly on a raft -- couldn't walk right for a couple days
  • Flaming Dr. Pepper
  • Tried to start a car by pouring gas into the carburetor and it backfired, burning my eyebrows off
  • Touching a glass-topped stove to see if the burner was on
  • Gasoline flare up while burning tree limbs
  • Accidentally leaning up against a coil-top range stove with a long shirt on
  • Burned my arm on a light bulb after having way too much to drink
  • I lit my fake finger nail on fire while trying to light a cigarette
  • M-80 firecracker
  • Lighting birthday candles
  • Dropping my curling iron down my back
  • Trying to be sexy with my food in front of a guy and burned my mouth
  • Lighting a blue dart
  • Bike muffler
  • Playing with a cigar torch lighter
  • Spilling Manicotti on my leg
  • Helping a child be safe with fireworks
  • Passing out in front of a camp fire
  • Lighting my hair on fire when bombed
  • Bacon grease popped in my eye
  • Loading logs into the fire place
  • Cooking while multi-tasking
