In London, at least, the novel "50 Shades of Grey" has precipitated an unfortunate trend. For example, one recent incident where a man's manhood nearly became toast.
Most men have enough common sense to know they shouldn't stick their member in the toaster. But apparently one man in London didn't and that prompted a warning from the city's fire department.
According to an article from the Mirror Online, the London Fire Brigade encouraged residents to stop acting like they were characters in the novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" and start thinking about the consequences of their actions.
In addition to the man with his penis caught in the toaster, the article said over the past three years firefighters have had to rescue a man whose penis was caught in a vacuum cleaner, nine men with rings stuck on their penises, 79 people stuck in handcuffs, four people who put their hands in a blender and five people who got their hands stuck in a shredder.
That's not including the large number of calls they get each year for children who get their head and hands stuck in things like toys, the toilet or candy vending machines.
They're just asking for people to use a little more common sense, for everyone's sake.
