This has to be the most bizarre news story ever. I have cried laughing at some many parts of it. Nonsensical and just brilliant. AIBU to find it so funny?

YANBU, although the funniest news story I've read is this...

I saw it on Twitter the other day, it just kept getting better, I loved the part with the sledgehammer that the clarified it was to the bed, I did worry for a moment it was taken to her arm! grin

It was the last line that did me in :D

Apparently she vomited 40 times to keep the moisture in her mouth. How odd as that would a bit counterintuitive

Eye drops. Your news story is hilarious.

oh my god that seagull hotel story is the funniest thing I have ever read!

Sunshineand Mon 24-Feb-20 00:18:21

What on earth. So much to unpick!confusedshock
On a serious note, she is so lucky she didn't die!

AlunWynsKnee Mon 24-Feb-20 00:24:06

It sounds awful for her but "We'll have to find somewhere else to keep the Christmas decorations' as the last sentence is very funny.

My favorite is the lady who pooped on a date then tried to throw it out the window. She managed to get stuck!

🤣 All brilliant- the Poo one ended me!!

AmazingGreats Mon 24-Feb-20 00:38:10

What did I just read? Brilliant.

LoseLooseLucy Mon 24-Feb-20 00:53:53

Was wondering why until the last bit 😬

sashh Mon 24-Feb-20 00:57:23

Seagulls in the hotel - funny.

Someone having to have a muscle removed and a skin graft - not funny, except the sledgehammer.

itsgettingcloser Mon 24-Feb-20 01:05:52

Didn’t find that funny at all the poor lady has been left with a potentially life altering injury!

Holdingtherope Mon 24-Feb-20 01:13:08

Oh god poo one is sooo funny

Taddda Mon 24-Feb-20 01:15:44

Yes, terrible that she suffered the injury, but the 'bbc news on loop with her thinking 'not this fucking shit again!' and 'finding somewhere else to put the Christmas decorations'! She was funny!

The Poo one made me cry!🤣

OvertheUnicornRainbow Mon 24-Feb-20 01:20:15

She had to keep vomiting and went to the toilet there and then?! But of course the worst thing for her was BBC news on loop! I couldn't help laughing either! grin

user127819 Mon 24-Feb-20 01:20:24

It sounds her injury was quite serious, but the vomiting bit was odd. She made herself sick 40 times in 12 hours, while trapped in one spot and unable to get to a bathroom, because she was worried she would die of a dry mouth? What on earth?

Tillygetsit Mon 24-Feb-20 03:51:00

@EyeDrops that's brilliant 😂

Nancydrawn Mon 24-Feb-20 05:31:15

I have just laughed for so long and so hard that I cried. And scared the dogs.

Of course it is horrible that it happened to her, but the vomiting. And the Mp3 player. And the news. And the deaf neighbor. And the incontinence. And the sledgehammer. And the product review. And the Christmas ornaments.

And going to the newspapers in the first place. I am going to weep again.

FortunesFave Mon 24-Feb-20 06:42:50

I think I must be missing something! I don't think it's funny at alL! It's horrifying! Poor woman might never get full use of her arm.

FieldOfFlameAndHeather Mon 24-Feb-20 06:57:40

What the hell? What’s with all the nonsense about being sick to keep moisture in her mouth? She was under a bed for 12 hours, not stuck on a mountain after a plane crash for a year and forced to drink her own urine and eat the dead passengers for crying out loud.

Apart from that it is a horrible story and I do feel sorry for her.
