Far be it from me to laugh at a fellow human being's misfortune. Still, this item from the BBC caught my eye and simultaneously raised an eyebrow.
"An overweight woman who got stuck in a South African cave trapped 22 fellow tourists for more than 10 hours and had to be prised free with liquid paraffin.
The woman became trapped in the Tunnel of Love obstacle in the Cango Caves in Western Cape on New Year's Day...
No drilling equipment was needed and the woman was eventually freed with a pulley and paraffin used to grease the surface at about 2320.
She was taken to hospital but is not injured and is expected to be released on Tuesday.
Mr Gerstner said: "We believe what goes in, must come out again. People get stuck all the time - that's one of the unfortunate things that happen, it's part of the adventure."
Reassuring words, I'm sure. But all's well that ends well, and if life stays true to form there ought to be a lucrative round of talk shows for the principals involved. You can get the, er, bottom line here.
