My husband turned the broiler on in his mother’s gas oven to toast English muffins one morning, unaware that his visiting aunt had left her girdle in the oven to dry overnight via the warmth of the pilot light. Burnning rubber makes a horrid smell!
That's a running gag on the ABC sitcom The Middle. The Heck family uses their oven exclusively to store quilts and bedspreads. Until someone forgets and turns it on.
