How embarrassing is this?
An American student had an embarrassing ordeal in southern Germany when he climbed into a giant sculpture of female genitalia and got himself stuck.
Thought to have climbed in for a dare on Friday afternoon, the exchange student got his legs trapped inside a giant marble vagina sculpture, which has stood at the Schnarrenberg Institute for Microbiology and Virology in Tübingen for the past 13 years.
When the man found he could not free himself, fifteen of his friends tried to intervene to pull him out.
When they failed, they called the emergency services. In the end a total of 22 firemen in five fire engines were deployed to help the American out again.

According to the Guardian:
The mayor of Tübingen told the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that he struggled to imagine how the accident could have happened, "even when considering the most extreme adolescent fantasies. To reward such a masterly achievement with the use of 22 firefighters almost pains my soul."

I'd love to know how he's going to explain the photographs to future employers when they research his background as part of the hiring process . . .
