Some days just suck…

Mark, why perpetuate this stupid moment of oversharing? The FB page where it is posted has a sexist comment and a link for “licensing information.” BoingBoing is better than this.

What happens when women try to do men’s work :sweat_smile::sob::joy: Gracie Henderson
Please share! :rofl:

wow, thats crappy.

That headline set up a drama: would “it” be the toilet or her hand?


#6

She held up pretty well through the whole ordeal. Although, once she was free, she did look a bit flushed.


#7

A plunger is one of those tools that is absolutely worth the price.


#8

I may be dense, but I cannot imagine how one could clear a clog in a toilet with one’s hand.

Why on earth would she want to unclog it by hand? Could’ve used any number of things… but your hand???


#11

This is hands down the worst way I have seen to unclog a toilet.


#12

Lucky for her she had clothes on.

Ok, any reason they felt the need to use a sledgehammer. A small maul or ball peen would have sufficed. Proud of their restraint, but give the lady a pair of safety glasses, especially if you are going to film it.

It does not show prior attempts but first attempt should have been a heavy does of liquid soap or mineral oil. Her arm looks dry. I think someone wanted to break a toilet today.

That’s some amazing plunger work. It looks like she ganked a brown alligator loose. And how did you find that without the words “THANKS OBAMA” tacked on the end?

On a more serious note, the fellows at the fire department were taking her life in their hands. They make knives out of porcelain for a reason. A cracked chunk of toilet pottery is unbelievably sharp!


#15

Maybe she dropped something valuable down there and was trying to retrieve it a-la Ed Harris’ wedding ring in The Abyss.

That’s certainly the story I’d be telling even if the truth was “didn’t have a plunger handy.”


#16

Brings back bad memories from when I dropped my $800 dental appliance in the toilet while it was flushing.


#17

Now she has to get a new toilet for the yard.


#18

I heard it was her phone ??? Her phone dropped in the toilet and she went after it, either that or Univision is full of it like usual >_> they always give the news half way, like plot points missing and the like


#19

That was my first thought. What if it shatters the wrong way and cuts her.

It would be nice if you could request no photos for incidents like this.
