Funny News

Today in the papers, there was this guy who got stranded up on a billboard for more than half the day. Apparently, his friend and him went up there to remove a spotlight and somehow, as his friend left, he took away with him the ladder.

Now this man straddling the billboard was there from dawn until past noon and he used a metal rod to shoo away the firemen who came to bring him down with a ladder. Since it was getting hotter, the firemen doused him with water, taken from a nearby drain. If you know Malaysian drains, they are usually thick as gravy and stinks till high heaven.

In the end, they managed to drag him down using a forklift and in the process, one fireman slipped and fell, spraining his ankle.
