Baby makes a splash!

A Con­necti­cut baby has arrived with a splash! The baby’s father, David Davis, tells WVIT-TV that he was BABY IN TOILETforced to deliver the new­born in the bath­room of his West Haven home Fri­day morn­ing after his wife, Lil­lie, went into labor. He says the baby slipped through his hands dur­ing the deliv­ery, but luck­ily had a safe land­ing in the toi­let bowl! He says she began cry­ing and it was the best sound he’d ever heard. Livia weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces — soak­ing wet.


An Alabama man who went to the hos­pi­tal for a rou­tine cir­cum­ci­sion says doc­tors mis­tak­enly ampu­tated his junk! Johnny Lee Banks Jr. of Birm­ing­ham and his wife, Zelda Banks, filed a law­suit on Tues­day. The suit alleges it was there when they put him out and was gone when he awoke. It has caused the man extreme pain, and that his wife also is suf­fer­ing. I bet! A hos­pi­tal spokes­woman says the claims lack merit. Ummm if it’s really miss­ing that’s all the merit it needs!

Known as the “under­wear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdul­mu­tal­lab was caught try­ing to blow up a plane on Christ­mas Day in 2009 en route to the US from Ams­ter­dam. The plane made an emer­gency land­ing in Detroit after the bomb failed to go off, instead caus­ing a fire which left with burns to his groin. US offi­cials traced the bomb plot to al Qaeda and at his trial the 25-year-old Niger­ian called the bomb a “blessed weapon” to avenge the mis­treat­ment of Mus­lims. John Pis­tole, head of the Trans­porta­tion Secu­rity Admin­is­tra­tion (TSA), told the Aspen Secu­rity Forum this week that the explo­sive device failed because of the length of time Abdul­mu­tal­lab wore his under­pants. Pis­tole said “The bomber had had the device with him for over two weeks.” Asked if this meant the bomb had become damp, he replied: “Let’s say it was degraded.”
