Sheriff: Woman Sat on Toilet for 2 Years


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who stayed in her boyfriend's bathroom for two years, spending most of her time on the toilet - so that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the man finally called police. [...]

[Some urban legends feature people who become stuck to freshly-painted or glue-covered toilet seats. Sometimes the embarrassed victim along with the attached toilet seat is taken to a hospital, where a doctor, viewing the prone patient, remarks, "I've never seen one framed before."

We are left to wonder if the attending physician was inspired to make the apposite comment.]
