All this talk about bringing in water cannons to the UK to quell any rioting seems like our politicians are missing the point - simply get a teenager to burst into flames! As shown here, it's a fairly effective method of crowd dispersal. Well, more like it turns a single-minded crowd into a mass of panicky individuals. But still, they're likely to have forgotten about up mobile phone shops in their terror...
It's also a rare instance of Flame On being rendered as a sound effect, devoid of speech bubble. A part of me like to think that Johnny made the letters appear in flame above his head... and then I remember that I rather dislike that sort of thing, and go take a cold shower to calm down.
