"A Chinese man who got his arm stuck in a toilet pipe in an attempt to retrieve his dropped mobile phone was freed by rescuers, state television reported on Tuesday.

When rescue workers arrived on the scene in Jiangsu province in eastern China, they found the man crouched over the toilet in a bathroom stall, his entire arm submerged up to the shoulder in the drain." Reuters

If you drop your cell phone in a public toilet, it`s going to be waterlogged and useless if you manage to retrieve it.

Only an idiot would put his arm all the way down a filthy toilet, to attempt to retrieve a waterlogged cell phone.

The idiot should have bought insurance for his cell phone, it would have saved him from becoming a national laughingstock.

The only person who should ever reach into a disgusting toilet bowl to try to get his cell phone is a spy who doesn`t want his phone containing state secrets to get into the wrong hands.

The rescue workers freed the man, and he was able to recover his feces-covered gadget.
