Drunken Fuel!

‘WE’VE all woken up in the morning wondering why we had that last drink, but probably with not as much cause as an unidentified Ethiopian man who was taken to hospital after drinking petrol.

Staff at the petrol station in Halle, Germany, called the police after they spotted the 30-year-old man drinking from one of the pumps. Police spokeswoman Ulrike Diener said: ‘He opted for unleaded and drank 0.14 litres.

Officers at the scene noticed he was drunk, so they called an ambulance to take him to hospital. He paid for the petrol, so he isn’t facing any charges.”

The man was kept in hospital overnight for observation, but was discharged the next morning, suffering from one hell of a hangover.’
