About XTREME Ironing
“Now we really can have a piece of the cake and eat it too. XTREME ironing is the solution for the time-deprived.” – Kym, Founder of XTREME Ironing
What do you do when you want to go out with your friends and have a good time, but have a truck-load of ironing to do at home? Combine them!
XTREME ironing is a celebration of the cultural phenomenon of multitasking that came into vogue at the turn of the 21st century.
Men worldwide have universally declared that multitasking is no longer the domain of women, and have taken to the extreme the concept of multitasking by ironing whilst performing other activities… like base jumping, hang gliding and rock climbing.
Women have joined in the celebration too by participating in the sport of XTREME ironing. The capitalization of XTREME makes it ever more XTREME.
Now an internationally recognized sport, XTREME ironing has exploded onto the main stage after decades of existence in the back-mountains of Kilimanjaro and Everest.
“All fights are resolved when one XTREME irons. Strange… but true.” – Kym, Founder of XTREME Ironing
According to Wikipedia, “[b]efore heading into the mainstream, extreme ironing was used by the band Monster Magnet in the video for their song “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” from their album Dopes to Infinity(1995) (this usage was most likely unintentional, as the video features the band members performing perfectly ordinary activities on asteroids). However, purists of the sport will claim that it was started in 1997 in Leicester, East Midlands, England by resident Phil Shaw in his back garden. Shaw came home from what he recalls as a hard day in a Leicester knitwearfactory. Preferring the idea of an evening out rock climbing, he decided to combine the two activities into a new extreme sport.”
It is the wish of XTREME Ironing that this sport soon enter the list of approved sports by the International Olympic Committee and we have dedicated ourselves to the pursuit of this cause.
XTREME Iron Responsibly
Here at XTREME Ironing we encourage the safe practice (as safe as one can be plummeting to the earth) of XTREME ironing.
Please be safe, be in the grouping of people who are experienced, and don’t forget to turn the iron off.
