Better call Joe the plumber...
A bit of toilet humour recently. Apparently a French man dropped his mobile (cell) phone into the toilet on one of the fast, intercity TGV trains.
These toilets work like airline toilets and use a vacuum system to empty. In attempting to retrieve his phone the French man found his arm sucked down into the system (cistern?) and had to call for help. Presumably not with a mobile phone.
All attempts to extricate the poor man failed so he had the indignity of being stretchered off the train with the toilet still attached to his arm.
The reports are silent on whether he got his phone back.
