    We had builders in on a very hot day, topless short wearing builders. Unlike most ordinary white van driving builders this trio had a lovely navy blue example which was extremely hot inside. 2ish in the afternoon when it can't physically have got much hotter they retrieved from the van a ginormous can of expanding foam (the M.S.E. part of the story - economy through bulk buying). They then proceeded to climb up a set of steps and squeeze the trigger. Like a thing possessed the can exploded spraying the room and its contents with expanding foam. Being a practical kind of guy the one holding the can ran to the nearest door and tossed the can into the garden still spewing its contents everywhere coating everything in its path with blobs of expanding foam carpets, walls, furniture and builders. It also set very rapidly. One of them, obviously the one with the hairiest chest, had managed to get it into his belly button prior to bending over and getting stuck to himself.

    Logic says you attempt to get off as much foam as possible from the affected person before it sets. Which is why the OH arrived home to find me standing on the drive in full view of passing traffic hosing down a naked buider (only at the point he removed his shorts did I discover that was all he was wearing). Builder is at this point very vigorously rubbing his hands around what appeared from the end of the driveway to be his nether regions. OH stormed up the driveway to be confronted by a very sheepish strawberry scented naked builder and me, and the other 2 builders, in fits of giggles.

    I never did manage to get the expanding foam off the tumble drier or the windows. But I did discover that the only way to remove expanding foam from a hairy builder is to place under icy cold garden tap, hose down whilst scrubbing with exfoliator, dry and then apply hair clippers. Fortunately I wasn't the one who had to explain to his wife why he'd arrive home smelling of strawberries with a cleanly shaven belly.
