Here’s a job to make you flush…but not with money

If you are a female about 5 foot 8, 140 pounds and willing to stick your head in a toilet, a northern Wisconsin prosecutor wants your help in a homicide case.

Vilas County Dist. Atty. Al Moustakis plans to recruit volunteers for a second round of controversial tests designed to prove that a woman was drowned by her husband in a toilet — and didn’t commit suicide as he claims.

Dropped your phone in a toilet on a high speed train? Buy a new phone.

A passenger on a French train had to be rescued after having his arm sucked down the on-board toilet.

The 26-year-old Frenchman became trapped while trying to fish his mobile phone out of the toilet on a high-speed train, passengers said.

They said he fell foul of the toilet’s the powerful suction system which drains the loos on board, the rail network’s regional office said.

Surprise! There’s a 6ft snake in the toilet

More at 6ft snake found in toilet

A six [foot long] snake has been found in the toilet bowl of a 10th floor flat in Australia. It’s believed the black-headed python had been living in the plumbing of the Darwin building for some time.

Snake expert Chris Peberdy rescued it after the tenants of the apartment got the shock of their lives, the Northern Territory News reports.

“When I saw it I was pretty shocked,” Mr Peberdy said. “It’s one thing in the Territory to have a green frog in the toilet … but not a six-foot python.”
