Student gets stuck in giant stone vagina

Talk about getting yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place.

This exchange student from America had to be rescued after getting stuck inside a giant stone sculpture of a vagina in Tubingen in Germany on Friday.

It was obviously a very tight spot as five fire engines and 22 firemen were needed to ease the unnamed man out - but not, of course, before someone took a picture and posted it on the interweb.

The man was said to have climbed into the sculpture as a dare, but his legs got wedged at the bottom of the art installation. He was eventually freed and was said to be "really embarrassed". You don't say...

Erick Guzman, who took the images and posted them, said: "I was there!!! He just wanted to take a funny picture.

"The fire department was not really amused, and he was really embarrassed."

The sculpture, by a Peruvian artist called Fernando de la jara, has been at the Tubingen University for the last 13 years in the Institute for Microbiology.

It is called Pi-Chacan, meaning "love making" in Peruvian-Indian. This is the first example of someone testing it out though (as far as we know).

While it may have been slightly humiliating for the man in question, there's no denying it makes an interesting story to tell the grandkids one day...
