AN ENGLISH man got himself in a sticky predicament when he didn't quite think through his Halloween costume.
Shawn Merter had a tiny sequinned top-hat to round out his outfit, but rather than tie it on with string, he superglued it to his head.
"I had fabric glue which is washable, but it wasn't sticky enough," he says in the video.
The point at which he realised his mistake is unknown, but the next morning an embarrassed Shawn was in the emergency ward at the hospital to have the formerly fashionable, now ridiculous headpiece removed.
His understanding boyfriend was there to offer support and muffled giggles as the doctor gave him the bad news; the best they could do is cut off part of the hat, leaving the rim stuck to his scalp until it came off on its own.
"I don't know which looks worse," says the nurse with the scissors.
Yes it happened months ago. No it's not really news. But aren't you glad you watched it?
In related news the inventor of superglue, Dr Harry Coover, died on Saturday at aged 94.
