Some things you should just let go...

From the NY Post:

A hapless Mets fan tried to make a diving catch when her gold tooth fell into a Citi Field toilet -- and got her arm stuck in the commode.

The unidentified woman's bizarre Flushing adventure happened during last Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves, sources said yesterday.

It's unclear how long she was trapped screaming in the john, but stadium security guards and emergency medical personnel eventually showed up.

But they could not pry her loose on their own.

They called for back-up -- dialing up a worker from Cardoza Plumbing, the company that installed all 646 ultra-low-flow toilets at Citi Field.

He rushed to the scene from his company's Jamaica headquarters 7.2 miles away, the sources said.

The anxious victim, meanwhile, could only wait as the toilet continued to flush over her arm.

I don't blame her. An ordinary cap today costs over $1,000, God knows what gold costs.

She's lucky she didn't lose her arm. Reminds me of the time Homer Simpson got his arms stuck in two vending vending machines.

EMT: Mr. Simpson, we have to cut off your arms.

Homer: But they'll grow back, right?

I wonder if she washed her hands before going back to her seat and eating anything?

Sure, gold IS expensive but with all the hoopla about swine flu, would any sane person stick their hand in a public comode??
