Prankster leaves glue on toilet seat
upi. ^ | April 7, 2011

Posted on 04/07/2011 10:26:28 AM PDT by JoeProBono

ELKTON, Md.- A man who sat on a glue-covered toilet seat in a Maryland Walmart suffered minor injuries but authorities said the perpetrator of the prank could land in jail.

The prank was actually a day early for April Fools' Day, CNN reported. Police, paramedics and firefighters were summoned to the store in Elkton Thursday, March 31, at about 7 p.m. EDT.

Firefighters spent 15 minutes getting the victim off the john. The victim, identified only as a 48-year-old man, had to be taken to Union Hospital of Cecil County with the toilet seat still glued to his rear end, Lt. Matthew Donnelly of the Elkton Police Department said.

The seat was finally removed at the hospital, leaving the man with only minor injuries.

Donnelly said the person who carried out the prank could be charged with second-degree assault. Investigators say the attack appears to have been someone's idea of fun and the victim was simply unlucky.

Super-Gluing skin to an object is not a prank - it’s assault.

Saran-tape on the toilet, is a prank.
Vaseline on the lid of the bowl, is a prank.
Filling a hair dryer with foot powder is a prank
Gluing a quarter to the sidewalk is a prank.

Anything that is intended to cause harm, is NOT a prank. It’s not that difficult to see the difference.

WHO.....sits on a bare, public toilet? Good grief! He would have been clued to the prank if he’d just used the paper protectors they provide.

Super glue drys really fast. The guy must have seen the perp exit the bathroom. Not much of a time interval between the setup.

Many years ago there was a true incident involving a large woman who got, well “stuck” in a toilet seat aboard an airliner..I think is was American. She had to land in that position, and it took rescue workers about 30 minutes to dislarge her....She got a lifetime pass from the airline..

U.S. woman in airplane toilet ordeal

High-pressure vacuum flush sealed woman to toilet seat

OSLO, Jan. 21 — An American woman had no need to fasten her seatbelt on a flight from Scandinavia to the United States after a high-pressure vacuum flush sealed her to the toilet seat of the transatlantic airliner.

THE WOMAN filed a complaint with Scandinavian Airlines System after her ordeal on a Boeing 767 flight last year.

She got sucked in after pushing the flush button while seated, activating a system to clean the toilet by vacuum, the airline said on Monday.

“She could not get up by herself and had to sit on the toilet until the flight had landed so that ground technicians could help her get loose,” a SAS spokeswoman said. “She was stuck there for quite a long time.”

How about shooting someone off of a toilet with a fire hose? The expression on the face right before you open up the nozzle is priceless.

Whatever happened to that woman who was stuck on the john for months? Her skin actually grew onto the seat.

Remember that one?

NESS CITY, Kan. — Deputies said a woman in western Kansas sat on her boyfriend’s toilet for two years, and they’re investigating whether she was mistreated.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said a man called his office last month to report that something was wrong with his girlfriend.

Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman’s skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

“We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital,” Whipple said. “The hospital removed it.”

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman’s 36-year-old boyfriend.

“She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body,” Whipple said. “It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself.”

He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

.
“And her reply would be, ‘Maybe tomorrow,”’ Whipple said. “According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom.”

The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that “there was something wrong with his girlfriend,” Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was “somewhat disoriented,” and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

“She said that she didn’t need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave,” he said.

She was taken to a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple’s names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz in Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbor.

“I don’t think anybody can make any sense out of it,” he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

“It really doesn’t surprise me,” Ellis said of the bathroom incident. “What surprises me is somebody wasn’t called in a bit earlier.”

After traveling world wide for over 26 years I can attest that MANY restrooms do not offer butt gaskets.

Depending upon the urgency, wiping and lining the seat with little squares of TP may not be an option.

Been there done that, still had time to wipe the seat. It's a two-birds-with-one-stone kind of thing for me. It also allows me to see that there's actually some TP in the stall before sitting.

That was my first thought. Do you reckon a friend of his did it, or did he do it to himself for some obscure reason?

My all time favorite was what the girls did back to us, after we paid a late night visit to their bathroom.

They went to McDonalds and got a bunch of straws. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but McDonalds has the white/striped straws that are a wee bit bigger than everyone elses.

They then cut those straws into 2 inch lenths, and boiled them in their hot pots. Once the plastic was soft, they bent them into “L” shapes and let them cool.

Then, they made a late night raid into our bathroom, and installed them at the top of our urinals, so when we flushed, they squirted water out - stratigically aimed, of course.

So, Sunday morning - the first bunch of slightly hung-over students are all wearing their suits, and making the trek to the church; they stop to make a pit-stop .... and viola’

That was perhaps the best prank I’ve ever seen.

Super-Gluing skin to an object is not a prank - it’s assault.

I don't think it climbs to that height. Some years ago I was asked by my M-I-L if I knew of anything that would remove "super glue". I answered warm water would eventually break down the bond but it takes a rather long time (weeks maybe months) for that to happen. Her inquiry caused me to look deeper for something quicker acting. I asked a friend of mine who was an ER Doctor and he said they used a dull scalpel blade to work along the bond line an just pry the bond line apart a little at a time. That seemed rather primitive so I checked a hobby store that sold model airplane kits and the clerk tossed me a bottle and said "here you go". The answer is a product called "JET DE-SOLV". It is flammable and you should avoid breathing the vapor and also keep it away from your eyes. The manufacturer is Carl Goldberg Models Inc, of Chicago IL. A 1oz bottle go for around $4 at most hobby shops. It works in a minute of two and cleans up with warm soapy water.

Regards,
GtG

PS It's proven over the years to be good practice to look before you sit and super glue is only one reason!

If it’s harmless fun; why not go do it at work? Do it to your wife, your friends, heck ... do it all the time. And when someone take you to task for your ‘prank’ - be sure to tell them to ‘get a life’, that will help a lot.

If the glue dries out so quickly, why was the glue not dried up when this person sat on it?

If the glue takes some time to dry out, then why did this person not get up as soon he realized that something sticky was between himself and the seat?

In all honesty, that was the last volley in bathroom pranks.

My humble contribution was the Bra-cicle. I would find sneak into their room and grab their bra, get it wet with water, wrap them around some popsicle sticks, then put them in their freezer.

Eventually, one would ask what happened to their bras; and I’d ask them if they checked their freezer compartment.

Naturally, my undies got the same treatment later on.
