Tongs break on man after he forgets to click-test them before use

Yesterday, Matthew, 30, had all the sausages prepared and ready to go on the grill for his family barbeque, until disaster struck when he attempted to grab a sausage with the tongs without first testing if they worked. Witnesses report that the tongs flung open, sending the spring across the yard and into the garden. Matthew told us he has never felt so annoyed at himself for forgetting the first rule of tong use - clicking them (twice) to make sure they work. He was put under barbeque supervision for the rest of the night.
