Superhero reduces “stuck in chimney” incidents


A Reykjavik rooftop, Iceland, September 2018


Chimneys have claimed a number of lives over the centuries, in fact the word “stuck” may have come from the chimney sweep trade. You can read all about it here.





Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. I had to check but there is also a German children/youth book called “Die schwarzen Brüder” (Black Brothers) about a young boy from Tessin in Switzerland. During the 19th century poor people from the alps used to sell their children to go to Milano, Italy, to work there as chimney sweeps. The novel impressed me a lot when I was a youngster and I read it several times.
