Painting the Toilet Seat

My wife had been after me for several weeks to paint the seat on our toilet.  Finally, I got around to doing it one day while she was out.

After finishing, I left to take care of another matter before she returned.  She came in and undressed to take a shower.

Before getting in the shower, she sat on the toilet.  As she tried to stand up, she realized that the not-quite-dry epoxy paint had glued her firmly to the toilet seat.

About that time, I got home and realized her predicament.  We both pushed and pulled without any success whatsoever.  Finally, in desperation, I undid the toilet seat bolts.  She wrapped a sheet around herself and I drove her to the hospital emergency room.

The ER Doctor got her into a position where he could study how to free her.  (Try to get a mental picture of this.)

My wife tried to lighten the embarrassment of it all by saying, “Well, Doctor, I’ll bet you’ve never seen anything like this before.”

The Doctor replied, “Actually, I’ve seen lots of ’em … I just never saw one mounted and framed.”

If you have a joke to share, please send it to me.
