The village idiot

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Setting her own hair on fire isn't the brightest thing to do.

Now, Dani Hamm is the reigning "Village Idiot" in Story, Indiana.

Hamm had given her locks a dousing with hairspray.

She was driving to work in February when she lit up a cigarette and then heard a "whoosh."

It was her hair igniting.

The dubious Village Idiot honor was bestowed by regulars at the Story Inn, where Hamm is a bartender.

The title is awarded every April.

It also comes with a $100 bar tab at the rural inn.
