Thought This One Was Funny!

This was taken from this year's Darwin Awards as a honorable mention. LMAO

When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street by sucking on a hose, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline, but he plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had and the perp had been punished enough!

Now that right there is funny. Got showered with grey water once and that was enough for me, for a lifetime.

Grey water can be some pretty nasty stuff! Especially if its been in the tank awhile.

We were in St. George, Utah, did my hook ups and knew I needed to dump the grey water. This was when we had the motorhome. I pulled the handle and nothing happened. I went over to the sewer line hook up and jiggled my connection. When I did it just exploded showering me from head to toe. Needless to say our traveling friends, to include my wife, found it incredibly funny, to the point I thought they were going to pass out because they were laughing so hard they couldn't breathe. I didn't think it was that funny at the time but after seeing the movie "RV" I got it.

I didn't notice when I did the hook up that there were two identical looking sewer connections. What I didn't know at the time was the one I chose was over an irrigation system valve that was buried deep enough to keep it from freezing. The water had no where to go but up and out when I released the connection.
