Re: FAIL of the day

Couple's devoted son a victim of grave misfortune

The Canadian Press

GATINEAU, Que.–A 77-year-old man is dead after a tombstone presumably fell on him while he worked on his parents' grave in Gatineau, Quebec.

Gatineau police say they found the man Sunday evening.

They said they had received a call from someone who had noticed a car had been parked at Saint-Gregoire cemetery since the morning.

The man, police said, had permission from the cemetery to work at the grave site.

He had been digging when the stone fell from the cement foundation at some point during the day, police added.

Re: FAIL of the day

= Man is found glued to toilet seat =
A man had to be taken to hospital still attached to a steel toilet after super-glue was deliberately smeared on the seat.

Firefighters were unable to free the man and were forced to remove the entire toilet with the man attached.



The 35-year-old was in a public toilet cubicle in Brierley Hill in the West Midlands when he became stuck.



He was taken to hospital where doctors had to get into the ambulance before using chemicals to free him.



Toilet re-installed

An ambulance service spokesman said: "He appeared to be none the worse for his ordeal other than being understandably somewhat embarrassed."
It is thought the glue had been smeared on the toilet seat by a prankster.
An ambulance crew and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene just before midday but they were unable to free the man.



"With the help of a local authority and the fire and rescue service, the man was removed from the cubicle still attached to the stainless steel toilet," the spokesman said.



The toilet was later taken back to the public convenience and re-installed.

Re: FAIL of the day

This one has been doing the rounds the last few days, but it's a good 'un.


=E-mail error ends up on road sign =
Quote:

When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed.
Unfortunately, the e-mail response to Swansea council said in Welsh: "I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated". So that was what went up under the English version which barred lorries from a road near a supermarket.

Man's arm trapped in train toilet

"A passenger on a French train had to be rescued by firemen after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.

The 26-year-old victim was trapped when he tried to fish out his mobile phone, which had fallen into the toilet bowl, and fell foul of the suction system."


http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7693386.stm

"The man was carried away by emergency services, with the toilet still attached to his arm."

Pay attention Higgy
Was that a 007 quote GG?
My friend went to see the latest one in London but 'she' said it was pants. Maybe that movie will be a fail of the day on its release here on Thursday. I'm going to a pre premier showing on Wednesday.
I've deleted the duplicate post now.

Cheers,
Double O Higgy
