Pants on fire

Bewildering use of the bastardised form in a headline in the Scotsman -
Fireraiser was all mouth and no trousers
A BUNGLING fireraiser challenged a man to fight then set himself ablaze when he tried to torch a house.
The High Court in Glasgow yesterday heard that 37-year-old Gary Reilly fled the scene with his trousers on fire.[...]

The head's both ignorant and inaccurate, as clearly he was wearing trousers - though, perhaps, not for that long.
