It looks like a classic prank could be making a comeback after a guy randomly had a padlock attached to his ear stretcher.
The guy – known simply as Tom Grim Fandango Matthews (great name) – said that, surprisingly, the incident occurred while he was at work, reports the Daily Mail.
He wrote on Facebook:
So guess what some little wank stain just did to me if I find you I will put you 6 feet under end of rant cunt.
Unsurprisingly, this did cause a few eyebrows to be raised and one person asked Fandango-Matthews:
Can I just ask how you didn’t notice someone fucking about with your ear?
A fair question but it seemed to anger him, as he replied:
Literally having a fag out back literally they came out, heard a click turned round realised they’re was a padlock on my ear and tried to chase em.
Unfortunately for Fandango-Matthews, no one seemed to have much sympathy for him – with the majority preferring to laugh at his plight.
Some even chimed in with suggestions for him.
One man wrote: “Get yourself to the diy shop and give em a fiver to cut it off. After they’ve stopped taking pictures and pissing themselves of course.” Another said: “I can pick locks, £10 an hour tho!”
Mr Matthews later commented – after reminding everyone just how angry he was – that he was ‘so glad old boy lived up the road and had bolt cutters’. So, it sounds like he managed to get the thing off.
Since Fandango-Matthews – who appears to be from the UK – made the post to Facebook on February 29, it has had nearly 9,000 likes and around 2,400 shares.
Surely the prize for best comment has got to go to Dave Snedden, who suggested he should ‘try keyhole surgery’ to get it removed.
Well played sir. Well played.
