Ice Age

More Than Just A Cold Shoulder

An Austrian man is demanding substantial damages after he was blasted off the toilet when huge hailstones started shooting out of it. Martin Bierbauer said: "Hailstones the size of golf balls started exploding out of the toilet like it was a popcorn machine." He ran down the stairs and said the hailstones followed him.

FOOTNOTE: Hail wary.

WHAT?! From where did the hailstones come??? Where do you find these stories!?

In a hailstorm of epic proportions, the throne was overrun.

They followed him down the stairs?

Until that line, I wasn't necessarily questioning his sanity. They followed him? Hailstones are sentient beings with intelligence enough to trail someone? Or perhaps they were heat-seeking hailstones?

Hail Mary.

Too funny! And what nut house had he escaped from? We need "the rest of the story".

Was it something he'd eaten?

Charles Gramlich said...

Did he mean gallstones? Kidney stones?

Crystal summed it up nicely.

What psych ward should I send the flowers to?

Stormy weather! *chuckle*

Here's the full story, pictures incuded.
During a thunderstorm, heavy rains and golfball size hailstones had created so much pressure in the aging sewing system of an apartment building that water and hailstones began spewing out of toilets.

Hmn. Rather hailstones than a huge hairy rat - I almost sat on one at a hired church hall loo - I couldn't even scream on account of it being mid-way through a kids birthday party.. shudder.
