BBC wrote: A man who became trapped beneath his sofa for two days said he survived by sipping from a bottle of whisky.

Joe Galliott, 65, lost his bearings during a power cut at his home in Yeovil, Somerset, and fell against the three-seater which toppled onto him.

Laughing out loud

Nah, drunk people do stuff like this:

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2172612.ece

The Sun wrote: A FEISTY raccoon has bitten off a pervert’s PENIS as he was trying to rape the animal.

Alexander Kirilov, 44, was on a drunken weekend with pals when he leapt on the terrified – but toothy – fur ball.

“When I saw the raccoon I thought I’d have some fun,” he told stunned casualty surgeons in Moscow.

Now Russian plastic surgeons are trying to restore his mangled manhood.

“He’s been told they can get things working again but they can’t sew back on what the raccoon bit off," said a pal.

“That’s gone forever so there isn’t going to be much for them to work with."

Just seen this story on the local news programme http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1126351/1-2million-peanut-revenge-factory-worker-ticked-having-girlie-calendar.html?ITO=1490

At the end the newsreader said "Mr Bentley denies the charge of possesing nuts with intention of contaminating food"

Laughing out loud
