The Fudge Report

"All the poop that's fit to scoop..."

Monday, November 13, 2006

Note: we're bringing back the reports!

Have you ever had a poo that was, like, twisty? That's the only way I can describe this one. It was like a soft serve spiral twist of mocha and chocolate. I don't know what the hell I ate, but I wish to never eat it again.

As a reminder, here's the guide to our poo ratings:

BF: The Burn Factor (0 none, 5 call the fire department)
MI: Messy Index (0 clean getaway, 5 get a mop)
TP^2: Toilet Paper Squares used (0 impossible, 5 means go to costco to get more rolls)
FL: Number of flushes
ST: Stink Factor (0 none, 5 don't go in there!)

So for our first report of the season, I present the Twisty:
BF: 2
MI: 3
TP^2: 8
FL: 1
ST: 4

Man dead for two days on hospital toilet

A 57-year-old man was dead on a hospital toilet for one and a half days before being discovered by staff, it has emerged.

The man had been admitted to Södersjukhuset's casualty department in Stockholm on 26th October suffering from pains in the chest and abdomen. Doctors took samples from
him, and decided to keep him in overnight.

But when a nurse came to his bed at 7:30pm to give him his test results, his bed was empty and the patient had disappeared. Staff searched for the man in the immediate vicinity of the ward, but did not find him.

Nurses assumed that the man had left the hospital, so they discharged him. It was only nearly two days later that the man was found in a toilet in the adjacent x-ray department. He appeared to have gone there on his own, locked himself in the toilet and died.

"He had been there for one and a half days," said hospital spokeswoman Ulrica Franzén to The Local.

Franzén said she could not reveal whether doctors had considered the man's condition to be life-threatening, but she did say that he had not been confused.

"If someone is in a confused state then we keep an eye on them, but that was not judged to be the case here."

She said that a more thorough search of the hospital for the man had not been judged necessary.

"We are a very big hospital, and it's not unusual for people to just leave. We didn't look for him because he was not confused."

The hospital has reported the incident to the National Board for Social Welfare and to the police.

Four Million Suffering From 'Toilet Phobia' In Britain

London, United Kingdom (AHN) - According to an estimate of the National Phobics Society, more than four million people suffer from 'toilet phobia' in Britain.

National Phobics Society has has launched a campaign to create awareness of this phobia. It revealed that the problem remains 'secret' due to the stigma attached to it.
Nicky Lidbetter, an official linked with National Phobics Society, said: "Few people will talk about having an anxiety disorder in the first place, but for them to admit that they have a toilet-related phobia is rare because of the obvious embarrassment and humiliation of being laughed at or not being taken seriously.""But, no matter how funny we might find it, it's certainly no laughing matter for almost seven per cent of the population who are reported to suffer from this condition," Lidbetter added.
