Pajama Pants on Fire!

It would have to be this word, wouldn't it? Pajamas, bloggers, the internet, it's all related, obviously.

Candidates for British universities have been caught red-handed copying their applications from the Internet after hundreds mentioned "burning a hole in pajamas at age eight" on their online entrance forms.

The phrase, taken from a Web site which provides examples of personal statements used by successful candidates, describes an early encounter with a chemistry set.

Medical course applications from 370 others contained statements beginning with "a fascination for how the human body works" and 175 included anecdotes which involved "an elderly or infirm grandfather."

Jeez, it's there as an example, not as something to cut and paste!
