Stone Age

Lucky It’s Just Toilet Humour

Does this happen in Boulder, Colorado, too? A tourist had a lucky escape in St. Gilgen, Austria when a 47-stone boulder (that’s 660 pounds or 300 kilograms) landed on a toilet seconds after he finished using it. Holidaymaker Josef Heller, 47, said: "I had just washed my hands - and as I walked out the door there was an explosion behind me and the whole house shook. "When I looked back I realised a massive boulder had landed on the toilet - smashing it to bits."

FOOTNOTE: Rolling stone concert.

Reminds me of the story(true or not? Who Knows?) my dad used to tell me about him and his buddies back on Halloween 1930, turning over the neighbor's outhouse while the guy's wife was using it.....I can still picture it.

This makes "getting your picture on the cover of the rolling stone" sound really depressing.

That is not a way that I would like to go, or be remembered - hit by a boulder while sitting on the loo - awful, what a lucky escape.

It seems like that boulder REALLY had to go....

Lucky escape or what? Not his time yet then.

Poor man needs more FIBER in his diet!(Well, you knew I couldn't "pass" on this one, didn't you?)

If I had to go with a bang..... then it had better be on the toilet rather than off!
This man had a lucky escape!

Nobody will beat the weight of this guy's punch line (the lucky fellow's name led me to immediately think of "Catch-47", the one catch that escaped bureaucracy by sheer weight).

I've heard of dropping a log but that's ridiculous. Sorry just couldn't resist! :#

This sure adds a sense of urgency to the phrase, "Hurry up and get off the pot!"

Cheers!

Usually when "massive explosion" and "toilet" are used in the same sentence I'm still sitting on it.
