Good Day World!
There’s a lot of subtle differences between people living in England and in the USA.
For example, most of our firefighters consider it taboo to talk about emergencies seeking help in removing foreign objects stuck on — or inside — people’s bodies. The very hint of sex makes them blush. Not so in merry old England.
London firefighters have launched a public shaming campaign targeting people who get carried away with their sexual organs and find themselves in very bad situations.
TWEET From London Firefighters:
The exception in America is Los Angeles. Firefighter medical director Dr. Marc Eckstein acknowledges that 911 operators do receive a small number of sexually bizarre rescue pleas and do dispatch ambulances, including instances in which they must assist men with heavy steel rings lodged around their private parts.
LA Firefighters, paramedics or emergency medical technicians use bolt cutters or, when necessary, the blazing torch of a plasma cutter to burn the rings off of the men’s penises’. They just downplay the number of cases per year.
But in London, fire officials aren't holding their tongues about how they must perform tasks like freeing a man's penis from a vacuum cleaner.
The London Fire Brigade has launched a public campaign dubbed "Fifty Shades of Red," theorizing that an increase in such randy rescue calls in that city is perhaps propelled by the popularity of the erotic romance novel "Fifty Shades of Grey."
CBS late night talk show host David Letterman heard about the issue and decided Wednesday to dedicate a top 10 list to "Thoughts Going Through The Mind Of The Guy Who Had Sex With A Toaster."
Time for me to walk on down the road…
