The Great Poodle Fire of 195_

It was a beautiful quilted robe, with its embroidered poodle on the patch pocket. E____ wanted to share it with the world. Her scheme was, to wrap it around the light bulb of a small lamp and put the lamp in the window for all to see.

She pinned the robe around the bulb, lit the lamp, and ran down to tell her sister R____ to come up and see the beautiful glowing poodle design. R____ went dutifully up, but by that time the robe had caught fire. R____ unplugged the lamp and E____ became hysterical in her guilt. The house stood once again.
