Default Petrol siphoning!

Found this in the Southampton Daily Echo:

When a man attempted to siphon petrol from a motorhome parked on a Seattle
street, he got much more than he bargained for.
Police arrived on the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a
motorhome near spilled sewage.

The man admitted to trying to steal petrol and plugged his siphon hose into
the motorhome's sewage tank by mistake and took a huge suck to start the
flow.

The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges,saying that it was the
best laugh he had ever had.

Well I had a good laugh over this too.
Thought some of you might also.
Ecky.
