15 Minutes of Fame

I supposed some of you are wondering why I haven't taken potshots at poor Mr. Bob Dougherty, the man who spent 15 minutes glued to a Home Depot toilet seat in Louisville, Colorado, a victim of an apparent practical joke. But Dougherty is already the butt of enough jokes. His dignity has been flushed down the...

In any event, the story has taken an interesting turn: Dougherty's been accused of having gotten stuck in another toilet in his hometown of Nederland, Colo. Is this some of sort of scam he's trying to pull? After all, Dougherty is currently suing Home Depot for $3 million in damages for pain, humiliation, etc. (He recently took a lie detector test to prove he'd never been stuck before and passed it.)

So what happened? Someone lined the toilet seat with a substance like Krazy Glue. Dougherty sits on it, gets stuck, and asks for help. An ambulance arrives, the seat is unscrewed, and Dougherty is taken out in full public view--his rear still attached to the seat. He also says he passed out from the pain.

Here's yet another reason to line your seat.

Well, one could also LOOK at the seat before sitting down...
