    Is that the hedgehog version of "Not tonight, I have a head-ache"

    No more crispy duck served at toilets

    BEIJING (Reuters) - Food stalls attached to Beijing's public toilets
    will be removed in good time for next year's Olympics, state media said
    Saturday.

    Complaints over toilets with poor sanitation and toilet operators
    turning them into commercial operations led to the ban, which comes into
    force in October.

    "It is not proper to sell soft drinks or snacks right at the toilets,"
    the Beijing News said, citing sources within the Beijing Municipal
    Administration Commission.

    "The city authorities also plan to publish a toilet guide, provide
    toilet information over the telephone and the Internet and erect more
    road signs to help toilet users."

    Billboards near toilets will also be banned, Xinhua news agency said.

    Notoriously polluted Beijing is cleaning up its act before it hosts the
    Olympics. It has also announced crackdowns on spitting and smelly
    taxis.

    I doubt that public toilets, spitting, and smelly cabs are the sole reasons for Beijing's NOTORIOUS pollution.

    I don't know. Most of the toilets I saw were downright nasty.
    And only loosely classifiable as "toilets." "Hole in the floor with footpads" is more accurate.

    ouch!

    TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for 2 km (1.2 miles), leaving a friend to pick up the missing limb.

    The 54-year-old office worker was out on his motorcycle with a group of friends in the city of Hamamatsu, west of Tokyo, on Monday, when he was unable to negotiate a curve in the road and bumped into the central barrier, the Mainichi Shimbun said.

    He felt excruciating pain, but did not notice that his right leg was missing until he stopped at the next junction, the paper quoted local police as saying.

    The man and his leg were taken to hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.

    How the heck do you not notice that your leg FELL OFF???

    Reminds me of this:

    ARTHUR:
    Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left.
    BLACK KNIGHT:
    Yes, I have.
    ARTHUR:
    Look!
    BLACK KNIGHT:
    Just a flesh wound.
