Man's arm trapped in train toilet

TGV toilets are equipped with a powerful suction system. A passenger on a French train had to be rescued by firemen after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.
The 26-year-old victim was trapped when he tried to fish out his mobile phone, which had fallen into the toilet bowl, and fell foul of the suction system. I hope for him that he could get up his trousers in time !

Sarkozy needled by 'voodoo doll'
A representative from the company that made the doll responds.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has threatened to sue a publishing company if it does not withdraw from shops a "voodoo doll" in his image. The doll comes with pins and a manual with instructions on how to put the evil eye on the president. What a great idea for the Americans, I think they haven't done that yet with Sarah Palin ! What a doll ! She would be ideal for that !

Snake on menu for Halloween
A RESTAURANT has been branded “sick” for serving SNAKE curry.
Python in a coconut sauce is being offered for £9.95 all week as a Halloween promotion.
But animal welfare groups condemned the stunt, claiming snakes killed for human consumption are “conscious for an hour after they are crudely decapitated”. How nice ! what a thrill having a headless snake running in your stomac !

Sex drug will work faster
SCIENTISTS have made a “son of Viagra” pill that works extra-fast.
It takes effect in just 15 minutes instead of 30 — and wears off after an hour and a half, rather than eight hours. I wonder if it is delivered with a watch ?

Queen's "No" to a gift horse
THE Queen looked a gift horse in the mouth yesterday.
She was presented with a white Lipizzaner stallion on her visit to Slovenia, but decided not to take it home with her. She said it would be “more humane” for 16-year-old Kanizo to stay on his stud farm. She is such a nice lady .... she prefers younger horses
