Some woman's underpants were used to extinguish a small house fire in the UK and this somehow made the news. What kills me is how the reporter here refers to the undergarment as a "giant pair of knickers," while sometimes adding hand gestures for extra-"large" emphasis. Meanwhile, the owner of the underpants stands by as if this is objective news. If you ask me, she should ball up those panties in her hand and give someone a giant knicker knock-out. He deserves it.
