The people who manufacture Zippo lighters have pulled the plug on a website dedicated to describing various tricks you can do with a flame emanating from small containers of highly combustible butane gas. The gags included such fun gags as dipping your finger in lighter fluid, then it setting on fire. There was also something called "Hogan's Leg Drop." That one certainly sounds, but unfortunately is not described in the article. And now, with the shutdown of, Hogan's Leg Drop will presumably be forever lost to the ages.
The loss of the site is also expected to severely reduce the pool of applicants for the annual Darwin Awards.
