back to article Spanish firemen grapple naked stairs sex Brit

A 49-year-old British tourist was rescued by "surprised" Tenerife firemen after an energetic shag ended with her dangling naked by her ankle from a flight of holiday apartment stairs. The unfortunate victim of decidedly unsafe sex - named only as "AMAM" - was indulging in "frenzied" rumpy-pumpy with her husband on a landing of …

      Ah, but shagging on Spanish territory is a mixture of tradition and en evolutionary compulsion to return to the shores from whence we were spawned and then spawn again.

        I assumed we acquired the right to do this sort of thing in the Treaty of Utrecht.

    "open a passage"

    So did the cops open a front or a back passage?

    Hang about!

    Isn't that the plot for Carry on Majorca?

      Not sure about Carry on Majorca?

      More like "Carry on up the Costas"!

      I've felt sad for several years, now that the lads have passed on!

      In the Western part of Andalucia, there is a perfect set for a "Carry-On" package holiday type caper using the following towns all to be found within 160 km of Seville:

      "Moron de la Frontera"


      and (drum roll - wait for it...)

      "El Rompido"

      I can see Sid "phwoaring" and Kenneth Williams in Blazer as the harassed tour guide trying to corral his charges. As for Babs Windor.....'nuff said!

        More than one Carrion

        I've driven past Carrion in Palencia loads of times without clicking the "Carry On" sound. They could have done Carry On Behind close by at La Olmeda which has one of the best Roman Villas ever found. Not far away you'll also find Villanueva de los Nabos and Villaturde

    That must have hurt. Hanging by a broken ankle... *shudder* I suppose additional assistance arriving sooner than the emergency services would depend on how much of a screamer she was/is.

    News: nothing happened today

    This sort of thing is great for a bit of pre-pub reading on a Friday afternoon, but isn't there anything more newsworthy on a Monday? What's going on with that Russian Mars probe?

      The Russian Mars probe.....

      ... is dangling by its ankle, from a low earth orbit, after becoming shagged out.

    Fell several meters?

    And the leg still attached? More like several centimeters (decimeters, at most).

    1. Bumpy Cat

      Fall then stop ...

      Possibly she fell down one level, and then her leg was caught on the bannister of the level below. As others have said, a Playmobil reconstruction would aid us in visualising the events ...

  11. Peter Gordon

    I'm having trouble visualising

    exactly how she ended up. Some sort of Playmobil recreation of the scene would no doubt be most useful.

      Hmmmm. I may have difficulty sourcing a naked middle aged Brit Playmobil figurine. Will a blonde in a bikini do? I've just taken delivery of one...

      Also, I'll put my thinking cap on as to just how to work a rogue Russian space probe into the equation. We can't have people getting upset about the lack of a solid news angle, can we?

        Is our intrepid playmobil astronaut back from his triumphal world tour? Perhaps he could stand in for the Grunt. Or serve as an advert for LOHAN.

          how to work a rogue Russian space probe into the equation

          Landing - is what the sample collection capsule was designed to do

          Landing - is also what most staircases have

          There - a connection!

    No, I think she was 'surprised'. The firemen were astounded.

    When he launched the witch into the fire after giving her a good seeing to, I guess its more environmentally sensitive to lob them over a balcony these days rather than toss them in the inglenook.

    An initial inspection of the ankle suggested nothing more serious than a minor fracture, although medics decided a trip to hospital was in order."

    Where else do you go with a bone fracture?

      You go home, you stick the kettle on , and then you have a nice cup of tea. Haven't you seen Zulu?

      Where else do you go with a bone fracture?

      Well I know this is in Spain so the NHS weren't involved, but I know people who've been sent home and advised to take over the counter painkillers when it later transpired they had broken bones.

      Upon viewing an x-ray a doctor once asked me when I'd broken my wrist. I replied that I didn't know I had. Quoth the doctor "That explains why it's healed so badly then."
