Stuff reports:

Student gets stuck in giant stone vagina

An easy headline for the sub-editor.

What was meant to be a funny dare turned into an utter embarrassment for an American exchange student, who found himself trapped in a giant stone vagina in Germany.

Damn Americans!

The unnamed man is believed to have been dared to climb inside the sculpture, which sits outside the university’s institute for microbiology and virology.

I did wonder why there was a stone sculpture of a vagina!

A total of 22 firefighters, five fire engines and a number of paramedics were sent to the scene, and quickly freed the man “by hand without use of equipment”, the newspaper reported.

22 firefighters for one stuck person? You could just imagine the scene at the station when they get a call that someone is stuck in the giant stone vagina – no one would want to not see that one, so they sent out five trucks!
