I remember the good 'ol days when you'd wake up in the morning and find your house had been cleared out, and you hadn't heard a sound....now they invade your chimney and kindly wait about dangling in your chimney so you can have a cuppa and read the paper before calling the police........what's the world coming too....

:lol: loved the vid on that page, made me wonder that if they started a little fire under his feet - he may have found the will and strength to climb out by himself....

Ive read similar stories like this before... and while Id love a real fire - Im burglar proof - with gas central heating... (from a chimney anyway)

Sort of related, this guy thinks theres a fire, so runs up to the roof, somehow falls off, and gets wedged between 2 buildings....

"Student, 19, rescued two days after he fell TEN stories and became stuck between buildings - until security guard spotted his phone"

Burglary is on of those careers, like modeling, where one must watch one's weight.

Meh, just hand him down a brush and tell him to start sweeping - as long as he's in there he might as well make himself useful.

I wonder if he has tickly feet. They should have tried it, it might have driven him nuts.
