Some bets just shouldn't be made.This guy needs to get himself right down to an #Occupy protest. He'll fit right in.
Just ask a 21-year-old Vallejo man who made a $100 bet with his friends that he could fit into a baby swing at a local park.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the unidentified man -– who should be thanking police for not releasing his name –- lubed himself up with liquid laundry detergent and jammed himself into the kiddie swing's leg holes about 9 p.m. Friday.
But he got stuck, his legs swelled and he couldn't get out.
To make matters worse, his friends abandoned him.
The newspaper reported that nine hours passed before a groundskeeper heard him screaming for help at 6 a.m. the next morning.
Vallejo firefighters tried to free him, but ultimately took him to a hospital –- still in the swing.
"The man sustained non-life-threatening injuries to his body, but there's no word yet on the condition of his ego," the Chronicle reported.
