You will often find Numpty hanging with his brother, of a similar name, on a wall. One particular day he discovered fire. Curiosity killed the cat, but Numpty doesn’t like cats, so he thought this must be a good thing. Needless to say the matches were lit and landed square on Numpty’s head. He now does public speaking for baldness.

In the video, a dandelion is shown, and three of its seeds are blown away. Then Numpty shows up running towards the camera scared with fire on top of his head.
In the beginning of the video, Numpty does not have fire on his hair, but his child adds a whoopee cushion on his chair, later pulls the rope and kicks Numpty and falls in the fire and acquires the fire on his hair again.
