Gerbil story

Allegedly from the L.A. Times, but perhaps not..

"In retrospect, lighting the match was my big mistake. But I was only trying to retrieve the gerbil," Eric Tomaszewski told bemused doctors in
the Severe Burns Unit of Salt Lake City Hospital. Tomaszewski, and his homosexual partner Andrew "Kiki" Farnum, had been admitted for emergency treatment after a felching session had gone seriously wrong. "I pushed a cardboard tube up his rectum and slipped Raggot, our gerbil, in," he explained. "As usual, Kiki shouted out "Armageddon", my cue that he'd
had enough. I tried to retrieve Raggot but he wouldn't come out again, so I peered into the tube and struck a match, thinking the light might
attract him." At a hushed press conference, a hospital spokesman described what happened next. "The match ignited a pocket of intestinal
gas and a flame shot out the tube, igniting Mr Tomaszewski's hair and severely burning his face. It also set fire to the gerbil's fur and
whiskers which in turn ignited a larger pocket of gas further up the intestine, propelling the rodent out like a cannonball."
Tomaszewski suffered second degree burns and a broken nose from the impact of the gerbil, while Farnum suffered first and second degree
burns to his anus and lower intestinal tract. A warning to us all not to play with matches...

JJ, although I wouldn't swear to it in a court of law, the LA Times is far too stuffy to print this story.

And yu do know the gerbil story has circulated before about a famous Hollywood star, don't ya? If not, here's a hint: finish the following sentence...."Get your ass in _ _ _ _."

JJ - that must be made up? Tomaszewski can't possibly be a realname!

Urban Legend Alert! ... but, then, the "allegedly" seems to suggest you already know that!

I'm going to have to upload the urban-legends blog I've been working on quickly or else they're all going to have appeared elsewhere - this is two in a week now!
