A Dunedin woman called police after she reached for lip balm in the dark, applied super glue instead and glued her lips together.

It reminds me of an old limerick:

There was a young couple from Delhi/Stuck together belly to belly/ One very dark night/They used araldite/ Instead of petroleum jelly.

    There is a valuable lesson for everybody here…….. do not leave superglue on the bedside table, EVER!

    The things that happen, huh.

    I seem to recall, a month or two back, there being an issue, and heads rolling over it, about the release to the press about a man receiving medical attention for having an eel stuck in his bum.

    Question – is the publication of this any different and if so why?

    I think the issue there was that hospital staff had accessed the man’s records.

    This report came from the police who routinely give information to the media on what they’ve been doing, without identifying anyone involved.

    They don’t have the same confidentiality requirements as hospital staff.

    And chew your eels properly!
