Toilet Floods Oscars Lobby

PIPE BURSTS JUST BEFORE CEREMONY STARTS

By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff

(NEWSER) – It was a decidedly unglamorous beginning to the Oscars: About half an hour before the show kicked off tonight, a pipe burst in the women's bathroom at the Dolby Theatre and flooded the lobby. It happened when the mom of one of the nominees flushed a toilet, an embarrassing situation described by another nominee to The Wrap: "The poor woman came out looking like a scene from Carrie. She was drenched."

While we can't confirm the story, we are receiving scattered reports of cannibalism from within the building.

Most appropriate. Must have been one of those new smart toilets letting the Academy Awards know exactly what they’re worth. ;-)

LOL, exactly. Would have been kewl to see a big tidal wave of turds rush right down the center aisle, then wash up onto the stage in the middle of the show.

"Where was Michelle..."

Ha ha! My first thought was similar, but with Rosie O'Donnell.
