We swear to dog that we read it as flying fish grease blaze. But no, oh well. A woman was frying some fish on her stove in Topeka, and when she went out to dump the garbage, her dog locked the door. Obviously he wanted all the fish for himself, or did he (maybe she)?
At the end of the day, after $50k in damage was done to the home, we discover that “everyone made it out safely, including the dog and their pet bird.” We think the bird is the real protagonist in this story, orchestrating everything from the initial purchase of the fish to the dog’s dastardly deeds to the great escape in the finale. Of course! Why didn’t we see it all before?
Also, the woman should have tried harder to get back into the house. What was she thinking?
