Extreme Ironing.: Has to be seen to be believed. I don't know whether to be awed, amused or sad. (via Coudal Partners)

In an old post, salmacis referred to this in what he probably thought was just a ridiculous joke. Won't he be surprised. I'm still not sure what to think of this.

Oh, I think extremeironing's server just crashed. It'll be back shortly once they iron out the issues. Ha!

It'll be back shortly once they iron out the issues. Talk about a ridiculous joke.

Don't get steamed Ufez, WC is just trying to smooth things over.

saw it on TV last year around this time maybe. they seemed to take it seriously but it was a piss take for fun (as far as I can tell). still, every so often I have seen a news item about extreme ironing. apparently a new altitude record was set over the summer. When you have had your fill of extreme ironing (or maybe get bored waiting for connection issues to be sorted) then have a peek at Wheelbarrow Freestyle.

Well, having the dead link really takes the starch out of this post. I guess I'll just press on.
