Oh the pranks

I am trying to imagine a guy sitting down on a toilet seat that had something wet on it and staying there long enough to have this happen.

from the Jamaica Gleaner

"There was such a case outside of college. In fact, it supposedly happened in Home Depot, the handyman's (or woman's) store. Bob Dougherty sued Home Depot last month claiming a prank left him glued to a toilet seat. He alleges that paramedics unbolted the toilet seat, which separated from his skin, leaving abrasions. Dougherty buttressed his case by claiming he suffered pain, humiliation and financial loss. He wants US$3 million from Home Depot. However, a witness has come forward to say that Dougherty had made a similar claim more than a year ago in the town where they both live. Dougherty's lawyer has rebutted the accusation."
