‘Who would have thunk it – a Grateful Dead toilet seat!’

I’m pretty sure if this had happened to me, I very likely would’ve committed hari kiri rather than call the authorities. A Maryland man decided to brave the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and called 911 to get separated from the Walmart toilet seat that he was superglued to by a cruel prankster. The victim, thankfully not identified, was eventually separated from the toilet seat and sustained “injuries to his buttocks” according to CNN.
Is there a worse fate?
I think it’s worth pointing out that often when this sort of thing is reported it turnes out to be a self-inflicted hoax aimed at a lawsuit. I’m sure it’s been done before, but when you consider how strong superglue smells and how rarely most of us sit on a seat without examining it for spills…
But maybe it’s a common prank that rarely works; we wouldn’t hear about all the times someone notices it and wipes it off or refuses to sit, I suppose.
