Man irons shirt on M1 motorway

In a bizarre scene this week a man in a dressing gown ironed clothes in the middle of the motorway.
Its part of a new craze sweeping the nation known as "extreme ironing", the act of pressing clothes in an adventurous location. The official website states that it is "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt."
Drivers heading northbound on the M1 may have been left bewildered after spotting a man in his dressing gown ironing a shirt on a closed lane of the motorway.

I expected some crazy to do this on an open highway or something. This guy is obviously sane enough to know which road is safer.

There are just some people to whom irons should never be sold.

I hate ironing... why in the world anyone invent iron, not to mention the danger involved possessing an iron when you married and it's the wife who holds it? In this world of crazy laws shouldn't we have a ironing license? A license for tiny iron to do lace and stuff like that, B license for ordinary steam engine and C license for those industrial thingy we see in movies... Now ironing with on of those on rope over Niagara falls would be extreme...

I want to iron a shirt in a gunfight inside of a burning house while zombies try to break in and kill me.

"Extreme ironing"? Daredevils. In order to qualify with other extreme sports such as train surfing however, it would have to be performed in the fast lane.
