My mother had a mangle and always warned me to stay away from it.  It
was basically a huge roller that was used to iron sheets and other large
pieces of clothing.  Getting your tit caught in one was considered a
minor injury as a number of people lost arms and/or lost their lives for
the sake of having ironed sheets.  I always figured that's why they were
called mangles, but I could be wrong about that too.

PS:  Saw a good sticker today.  If adapted to a Triumph it would say
"Driver Carries No Cash, I Drive A Triumph"
