Diatribe: Russian Man Leaves Naked Lover With Head Trapped In Railing.
I’ve always been a big fan of the character of Julia Sugarbaker as portrayed by the late Dixie Carter on the CBS sitcom Designing Women. Julia Sugarbaker was an attractive middle-aged woman … a left-liberal feminist who wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. Her no-nonsense, independent and confident rapid-fire speeches and passionate beliefs earned her the nickname “The Terminator” among her friends. So when, in a fan-favorite episode from Season Four (1989-1990) entitled “Julia Gets Her Head Stuck In A Fence”, Julia found herself in an unusual and out of character predicament, audiences roared with laughter.
While posing for a gag photo at the governor’s mansion, Julia gets her head stuck in the banister just before the annual ball.
The show’s writers were fantastic but, while Julia’s predicament in this scene was surely comical, it pales in comparison to a woman found naked with her head wedged in a stair railing in a Lipetsk, Russia apartment building. She got stuck there while having sex. A neighbor who saw her with her head stuck in a banister called police. The 46-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, told them that she and her boyfriend were trying to “spice things up” by taking their tryst to the apartment building’s stairs. Upon learning of her predicament, her lover fled the scene.
“In all my time working as a rescuer, I don’t recall any incident like this one.” – Emergency worker responding to the call
Although she was surely embarrassed by the ordeal, she waited patiently while rescuers cut away the bars on the railing. She was uninjured, aside from her pride, and is undoubtedly in the market for a new boyfriend.
As a coda to the story, much like the final scene of each Designing Woman episode there is one last laugh. Reports indicate that the woman and her lover may have been intoxicated when the incident occurred. This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one.
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.
And … cue whacky theme song …
