A SMALL home-made device exploded in a toilet in the restroom of a fast food outlet in western Sydney but no one was injured, police say.
The device was detonated in the men's toilet cubicle at a McDonald's restaurant on High St in Penrith at around 9.10pm (AEDT) yesterday.
"The explosion damaged the toilet cistern and an air vent," NSW police said today in a statement.
"There was nobody in the restroom at the time.
"The remnants of a crudely made explosive device was found and taken for forensic examination."

It isn’t that unusual to have an explosion in the toilet after eating at McDonald’s. I take it thisbis McRib season again?
Big Mac Attack.
Kids used to flush M80’s down the toilets in my highschool a few times a year.
Thisbis is a word I just invented, as in “thisbis was typbed onba myba iBPadb”. Of course this time around it auto corrected all those words when I tried to type them on purpose. It’s a Mushmouth tribute moment.
I take it thisbis McRib season again?
McRib season starts Nov 2 in the NYC area(no bs). All of the major crap and McRib will be over by Jan 1.
Small price to pay to be able to Freep any time, anywhere.
Fitting that November 2 is both election and McRib day. America deserves sane governance and a tasty sandwich.
I and the rest of our football team snuck into the opposing high schools gymnasium on the night of their pep rally.
This school had been built in the thirties and it was built entirely of wood.
Well we stole into the gyms locker room and ‘flushed’ a couple of M-80’s down each of the six toilets.
For a minute .. nothing seemed to happen.
All of sudden .. a rumble starts under the old wooden floor boards and you’d have thought that an earth quake was starting.
Water gushing up out of the toilets, floors buckling and .. The next thing you know .. The damn dividing wall between the locker room commodes and the gymnasium itself .. “FALLS”!
We were standing there looking out at some of the most stunned and angry looking crowd of faces that you’d never want to see!
Needless to say .. We hauled our butts out of there with about 200 alum .. right behind us!
I'm a bit ashamed to say I was one of the little SOB's who did this once. Seemed like a fun thing to do at the time, but I felt pretty guilty after the fact (not enough to confess, however).
Never in a million years would I have guessed homeland security and BATF would come after us for pulling a stupid prank. We were having too much fun to think about the thousands of dollars in damage it caused.
That's why I pray every day for the lord's forgiveness... I was a little bit... "adventurous" when I was younger.
Wolf down two big cheeseburgers and you’ll blow the toilet into orbit.
Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly. MAMA
haha, that’s a great one. We didn’t have any of that, but I know it would cause the pipes to leak in the basement. I went to a very large HS in Chicago (Lane Tech for those in our region), but it would make a huge ruckus and a water mess!
Now, also, being in the city, I heard our M80’s were the cheap ones... you had to go south to get the “good ones”.
But then again, I used to hear that the good beer was “Coors”, until a few folks made the smokey and the bandit run out west and brought some back. Bleh.
Thanks for the chuckle, reminded me of a scene that shoulda been in Porkys, and I can only imagine!
Yeah, there is zero tolerance for pranks any more. Our graduating class put live goldfish in them big fruit punch dispensers in the cafeteria.
I think they’d have you committed now for endangering fish or some nonsense.
I never flushed one down the toilet. What I did do is put one under a garbage can that was empty and turned over. No damage but it was fun.
Yeah, Funny as hell NOW but it wasn't so great back then! LOL
Does it count that this happened in the same state as Porky's?
I 'think' that Porky's was filmed partially in the Keys?
The high school that I was talking about was in Fort Lauderdale.
(Both .. South Florida)
Bunnies are planning to wage war against humans, like they did to ptarmigans.
