Maryland man glued to Wal-Mart toilet seat
(CNN) -- Police in Maryland are on the hunt for the perpetrator of what appears to be an April Fools' prank that left a man glued to a toilet at a Wal-Mart store.
<snip>

Police, along with the Singerly Fire Company and the Cecil County Paramedics, were called to the scene at about 7 p.m.

There, they found the 48-year-old victim, who called for help after realizing the sticky situation he was in when he tried -- and failed -- to stand up and leave the superstore's restroom, Donnelly said.

It took responders 15 minutes to remove the victim from the stall, but they were unable to disconnect the toilet seat from his body, Donnelly said.

1. Yup, the last guy did it himself
Would someone be dumb enough to try and pull it again?

2. Who sits on a public toilet seat?
Not at all endorsing the asinine prank - it was clearly out of order. My concern is that anyone actually sits their bare behind on a public toilet seat. That's all kinds of just nasty.

3. And in Walmart!
I would trust my bare behind on a toilet seat even less in one of those hellhole stores.

The article never actually said he placed his bare behind on the seat. But I suppose he did.

6. Paper/Cover

If he'd put paper on the seat before proceding to sit down he would have noticed a substance on the seat. I can only imagine the nasty germs on a public seat.

9. Who the hell doesn't look at a toilet seat before sitting down?
Does sitting in other people's piss not bother some folks?

15. Why "on the hunt for the perpetrator" when they should prosecute for shopping at Wal-Mart!
Boycott these profit-mongering, right-wingnut financiers, FCS!!
