Woman gets prize for setting her hair on fire

A woman in Story, Indiana whose hairspray-coated hair ignited when she lit a cigarette is now her town's official "Village Idiot." Dani Hamm earned the honorary title by getting the most votes from regulars at the restaurant where she's a bartender. The title awarded every April comes with a $100 bar credit.

Hamm was driving to work in February when she lit a cigarette and then heard a "whoosh" as her hair ignited.

She wasn't injured because she used her hands to douse her hair, which she had coated with a liberal layer of hairspray. (info from The Associated Press)
