A Metaphor for the Mets Season?


gold-plated-toilet_48An unnamed woman at last Wednesday’s Mets/Braves game at Citi Field in the bathroom when, somehow, her gold tooth fell out and into the toilet bowl. With advertisements for USCoins.com, a company that buys gold sprinkled around the new stadium, this woman knew she was flushing cold hard cash down the toilet. So she did the only reasonable thing; try to make a diving catch only to find her arm wedged and be completely stuck. Trapped in the toilet for some time, stadium security guards eventually heard her screams and called for emergency services, but they were unable to free her. Meanwhile the toilet continued to flush over her hand again and again. Finally, a plumber was called who freed her as a crowd formed around her, watching the spectacle.

The tooth went not recovered.

According to an anonymous Queens plumber, “The truth is, this kind of thing happens all the time — usually with wedding rings or cellphones. People have probably been getting their hands stuck in toilets as long as there have been toilets.”
