German police rescue 91-year-old man glued to roof - Tuesday March 13, 05:47 PM

BERLIN (Reuters) - A 91-year-old German sparked a rescue operation when he slipped mending his roof and got stuck fast in tar "like a beetle on its back", police said on Tuesday.

Passers-by were so shocked to see the elderly handyman working on the roof they first thought he was planning to commit suicide, according to police in the eastern city of Magdeburg.

"In fact he was just re-coating the roofing with bitumen. But then he slipped," said a spokesman for police.

"When we got there, he was like a beetle on its back, with his arms and legs sprawled out and completely glued to the roof," he added. "Due to his age, he couldn't free himself from his unfortunate situation."

Local firemen carefully detached the man using ropes and ladders. He was unharmed, but had sticky clothes, police said.

That shouldn't be funny but I could help but laugh! Poor man

instead of watching why didn't passers by offer to do it for him, for goodness sake is there no respect anymore, at 91 years old he shouldn't have had to do it himself anyway!

I thought you might find this funny.

On Thursday Dad decided to fix the leaking shed roof, so he got the ladders out (which must be at least 30 years old) and started mend it. He couldn't quite reach parts of the roof so he decided to open up the ladder and lean them against the shed while I stood on the bottom (nothing wrong with it). All was going well until the metal clip that was holding the ladder straight bent and they gave way. I felt the ladder go, but it wasn't till I looked up I saw that dad was stuck on the shed roof with the ladder underneath him. At this point I looked at mum who was standing only feet away and we both burst out laughing. We tried to pull the ladder out from under dad but he was shouting to us to stop, saying it was hurting, we realised that the crutch of his trousers had got wrapped around a rung on the ladder and when we pulled it it was pulling him too. Still in fits of laughter we managed to free the ladder and eventually get him down, he was covered in black mastic which he had been gluing the roof with and grazes from his elbows to his wrists, which only made our fits of laughter continue. "I'm glad you find it amusing" he scorned.
He was lucky really that the roof held his weight, because of the amount of crap in the shed he would have been in real trouble had he gone through it. I know we should have been concerned but all we could do was laugh, it was like a scene from a carry on film. I wish I'd had the camera running, could have sent it into 'you've been framed'.
After cleaned himself up, he went to inspect the ladder to find out what had happened to it, only to then say "Who made them? I'm going to sue!".

Having a cup of tea he turned to mum and said "Now you've unsuccessfully tried to kill me on the shed roof, what else do you want me to do?"
"Finish the driveway" she replied.
"No, you'll probably drop a paving slab on my head" he finished.

Now I call him Stunt Devil.
Awww, poor dad, but it was hilarious.:lol: :lol:

The two stories are not meant to laugh with, still it is in our nature to do so.
I can't help myself to laugh with that. Everybody laughs with it otherwise you would not have programmes on TV like those that Nikki mentioned.

When I look at the faces of those joggers who would rather be doing anything else, I have to laugh - the pain & stress continually puzzles me. I take my hat off to them for making the effort but I'll be kind in saying their physique would cause a tsunami in India. Not a hope in hell would it be me even being slightly underweight.

I know I definately shouldn't of laughed at this but it was soooo blatantly fake!

Spoiler:
The Firework disaster on Casualty last night
I mean, if your going to do it at least set more than one off surely one firework wouldn't of done that much damage?? I don't know :roll:

Edit--I added the spoiler boxes incase no one has seen last nights episode of Casualty yet.

I laughed at the car accident bit - could see it was a dummy - but didn't she strap several fireworks together? That's the impression I got

Kitten Molly, being a little over inquizitive, fell into the bath the other night - luckily the water wasn't too hot but she was like a drowned rat. I'd to dry her off but she didn't learn her lesson because she was tip toeing around the edge of the bath 2 minutes later.
