Icon101 Concert goer gets head stuck in tailpipe.

Alcohol may have been involved.

Thanks for that blurb Captain Obvious.

I've never seen huge tailpipes like the one in the video. Even if I did, I sure as hell wouldn't stick my head in one.

I get an "access denied" error. I wonder if that's because they've blocked all European traffic in a fit of misplaced Libertarian pique, or if it's something else.

Police

I forgot about the new EU laws on privacy.
In a nutshell: a young woman was at an outdoor concert when she saw a vehicle with an over sized tail pipe. She decides to stick her head in it because that's what you do when you see an over sized tailpipe. Naturally she got stuck and after the rescue squad freed her, the police escorted her off the property and promptly charged her with underage drinking.

Richard, I had the same issue, and I'm not in the EU, so I searched and I found a related site with the exact same story.

I get access denied on that one too - weird. And on the versions I've found by searching the headline.

Still, the site below has a video that works for me, even if its "full story" link still gives access denied. I just wanted to see a photo, really, and this site has a whole video...

ooh okay I thought you meant you had got your head stuck in a tailpipe.

We had on the news here tonight. I have a relatively small head but not I don't tend to stick in things to see if it will fit.

I suspect that most people aren't that ... shall we say, adventurous? Those who are, are of the "here, hold this and watch me!" school.

I have a vague recollection that I did things like that when I was about three.

That particular temptation is no longer with me.
