Prince Of Porcelain

Please Can I Have My Phone Back?

A Frenchman caused a two-hour delay aboard the high-speed TGV train from Paris to La Rochelle when he got his arm stuck down a toilet while trying to retrieve his cellphone. Firefighters took more than an hour to free the man, before lifting him out on a stretcher - with the entire toilet still stuck to his arm.

FOOTNOTE: Armless fun.

I've always said cell phones will be the death of us!

This so could have been me several times. Never, ever let your one year old play with your phone in the bathroom. Twice. MH

Must have been a very important call to interrupt the call of nature.

And I thought MY cell phone reception was in the toilet.

What did he want it back for anyway? It would be dead as a dodo after being down the loo.
Takes some believing that he had a WHOLE toilet attached to his arm.

Why did he bother? It isn't like the phone was going to work.

Bet he heard an earful for rescuing his eyephone! ;-)

N.B.:
From some of your readers comments I presume that not all countries have train loos that are nothing but a hole, oopsie, pipe with a hole, that empties onto the track. Woooooosh!!!
