Danish Dude Getting Cinnamon Shower For Not Being Married By 25 Suddenly Starts On Fire

On second thought, I will get married before my 25th birthday. To anybody, if this is the only alternative.

There is apparently a tradition amongst buddies in Denmark that involves douching a guy with cinnamon on his 25th birthday if he isn’t married to a beautiful Danish woman by then. That seems like a ton of laughs, unless of course you’re allergic to cinnamon.

Or, you know, if you suddenly find yourself on fire for some reason.

Great news, ladies! This eligible bachelor wound up sustaining zero serious injuries after his pals jumped on him to put out the flames, so he’s all yours if you’re into burn victims.

And in case you’re wondering how a guy covered in cinnamon could burst into flames, it’s because, believe it or not, cinnamon contains cinnamaldehyde and eugenol. According to Strike First USA, aside from giving cinnamon its unique flavor and odor, the compounds are also flammable. That means cinnamon can cause an explosion if too much of it gets into the air and ignites.

Maybe from here on out, Danes, something a tad safer like letting a mule kick him in his junk should be in order for those not married by 25.
