If it is in the news it must be true department

Now I am pretty open minded, but this one strains credibility. Great story all the same.

An American woman became stuck on her boyfriend’s toilet seat after sitting on it for two years, Kansas police say.

It is believed the 35-year-old woman’s skin had grown around the seat, with police still considering whether to lay any charges against her boyfriend in the bizarre case.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

The woman’s boyfriend said he brought her food and water and asked every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, 'Maybe tomorrow,'" Whipple said.

"According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

Police are curious why the boyfriend waited two years before calling them to report that "there is something wrong with my girlfriend".

man those pins and needles from sitting too long must have hurt! And I hope there was a second toilet cause it would have sucked having to hold on for 2 years.
