Men Glued To Toilets -- No film at 11 (thankfully)

Just when I was thinking about how politics sometimes feels like cleaning latrines, a real potty story comes along to cheer me up. From NBC-4 in Los Angelos (don't they have any human interest stories closer to home?) comes THIS STORY about happenings in Maryland:

Men Glued To Toilet Seats At Wal-Mart, Denny's

SALISBURY, Md. -- You'd think more people would check the seat before they get comfortable in a public restroom.

For the second time in a month, police in Salisbury, Md., are investigating a report of a man glued to a toilet seat.

Go to the site, they have an online poll about the subject.

Last November, toilet-gluing made big news when a man announced a lawsuit against Home Depot after being glued to the seat in a store bathroom:

BOULDER, Colorado Nov 2, 2005 (AP)— A hardware retailer Home Depot has found itself in a sticky situation, defending a lawsuit filed by a man who claims the chain's Louisville store ignored his cries for help after he fell victim to a prank and was glued to a toilet seat.

But that incident was in 2003, and for a while it seemed us males could breathe easier. But no longer. I don't know what they are putting in the water in Maryland, but we can only hope this fad doesn't cross the Potomac.
