    Default Um........Yeah...........This is a bit weird.......

    Wow. This would have gotten like at least 3 alarms to make sure everyone heard about it......

    Not everything that blows up is a bomb

    Premature inflation of sex toy sparks alert at German post office

    Updated: 10:54 a.m. ET March 16, 2005BERLIN - An inflatable sex doll sparked a bomb alert in a German post office after it started to vibrate inside a package awaiting delivery, police said Wednesday.

    “Workers were unsettled when it began vibrating and made strange noises,” a spokesman for police in the eastern city of Chemnitz said. “They were worried the package might be a bomb.”

    Officers brought the sender to the scene and discovered the source of alarm was an electrical device inside the life-size female sex doll. The man told police he had wanted to return the doll because it kept turning itself on at the wrong moment.

    Order was restored after the sender removed the doll’s batteries so the defective product could be returned.

    The manufacturers need to put one of those labels (like on hair dryers) Please remove batteries before packing into luggage or shipping!!! I have heard of luggage getting opened and detained when marital aids turned on!!

    I used to work for UPS loading the trucks in the morning. We had one of those sex shops on the route. Some boxes used to come off the sorting machine all mangled, we used to get a glimpse of all sorts of "toys". Amazing what is out there. Looked like some of those toys needed a 220!

    Apparently he had other things on his mind. If the machine turned on at the wrong time, he probably was upset that he couldn't even please a doll, let alone a real woman.

    we were working a full arrest one night and the patient stayed in persistant v-fib dispite being defibrillated 9 times. after the battery alarm began to go off on the lifepack 10 we decided to go ahead and load the patient for transport since we would soon loose monitor capability. we went to move the patient and it was then that we saw a mysterious cord running under the patient....you guessed it...he had a silver bullet sex toy in his you know what, we figured that the vibration from the toy made it look like v-fib on the monitor, thus causing us to shock the hell out of this guy.
