Doofus Of The Day #537

Today’s winner is from Tudhoe in Britain.

The 26-year-old had been playing a game with his drinking mates to find items that could fit over their heads when the idea spectacularly backfired.

He had the brainwave of putting a loo [toilet] seat over his head, but decided to see how far it would go over his body.

But the fun turned into a nightmare when it became lodged around his torso.

For two hours he tried to wriggle free from the plastic seat but couldn’t budge it.

And in desperation, he picked up the telephone to ask firefighters at Durham Fire Station for their help.

The man, from Tudhoe, County Durham, arrived at the station with his girlfriend and pal at 7pm on Thursday so the crew could use cutting equipment to release him.

There’s more at the link.

There are plenty of comments from the firefighters reported at the link . . . but I want to know what his girlfriend had to say! If he marries her, I daresay he’ll never be able to live down this incident. Every time he tries to tell his wife what to do, she’ll retort, “That’s rich, coming from a guy who got stuck in a toilet seat!!!



  1. This is actually a common game amongst cavers (spelunkers) in the UK, as a form of training for fitting through tight underground spaces.
