Man+dog plunged into 'faecal lagoon'

Totally crap Swedish sh*t pit ordeal

Seven Steps to Software Security

The powers that be are investigating just why Swedish bloke Thomas Sundberg and his mutt Rex weren't warned of an impending ducking in a "faecal lagoon" at Kramfors-Sollefteå airport - a merdurinous "pool of filth" into which they were without warning cast.

According to the Tidningen Ångermanland newspaper, the pair's innocent stroll ended badly when the ground beneath their feet gave way and they dropped into "a hole filled with excrement".

Sundberg recounted: “It stank something fierce and I took my clothes off immediately. I called my wife and then ran naked to a nearby river where we jumped in the water to get rid of the worst of the shit. I just threw my clothes away.”

The shit pit in question was apparently a "sludge lagoon maintained by Kramfors municipality to store and dry sewage from a number of wells". Council operative Tomas Lundin "promised to investigate the matter to determine why the area wasn’t properly marked". ®

Bootnote

Yup, this is a Friday Swedish Bootnote, so you lot can blame Mike Richards for the heads-up.
