A dwarf performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival gets his, ahem, member stuck in a vacuum cleaner.
For those of you asking how on earth that could happen… His act, part of the famed Circus of Horrors, was to actually attach the vacuum to his member:
The main part of his act was for him to appear on stage with a vacuum cleaner attached to his member with a special apparatus.
The attachment broke before the performance and Blackner tried to fix it using extra-strong glue, but unfortunately let it dry for only 20 seconds instead of the 20 minutes required.
He then joined it directly to his organ. The end result? A solid attachment, laughter, mortification and … hospitalisation.
“It was the most embarrassing moment of my life when I got wheeled into a packed A&E with a vacuum attached to me,” Blackner said.
“I just wished the ground could swallow me up. Luckily, they saw me quickly so the embarrassment was short-lived.”
I don’t know what it more amazing to me… that he can have a vacuum attached to him in front of hordes of audience members yet it’s uncomfortable in the emergency room OR that he now goes down in history being quoted using a self directed double-punned height and dick joke.
