Doctors in Sweden have been dishing out free measuring tapes to help young men buy the right size condoms. A health clinic in Stockholm is on a mission to encourage safe sex and has been handing out tapes, which have been specifically designed to measure manhood girth, to ensure they buy a size that will best fit their penis.

Eddie Sandstrom, a male nurse at the clinic, said, "A common reason for a condom slipping off or breaking during sex is that you've bought the wrong size.

"You have to measure the circumference of the penis when erect, not the length. On our measuring tape, you get the measurement in millimetres and a few recommendations for condom types that are suitable."

A toddler had to be cut free by firefighters after she got a potty stuck on her head. Kyla Smith, two, gave her mother, Teresa, a fright after she landed herself in a sticky situation when she pushed her head through the hole of her mini-toilet seat and couldn't remove it.

Teresa said: "It was quite a sight. It is quite funny now looking back at the pictures, but at the time I did panic. I knew it wasn't hurting her because there was a gap around her neck, but I get it off myself no matter what I tried."

The mother of three had no choice but to call the emergency services after she tried, but failed, to remove the seat by smothering the rim with washing liquid.

Four firefighters rushed to their home in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and cut the little one free five minutes later with the use of industrial


Teresa explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The firemen even tried changing positions and pulling it this way and that way, but it just wouldn't budge.

"They ended up using these things that looked like wire cutters, but they were a lot bigger than normal ones.

I was worried the plastic might cut her if it broke, but Kyla was really calm and

wasn't fazed at all, even when they were cutting her free. She was completely fine afterwards, she was running around looking for it straight away."

A donkey has been arrested. Police in Norman, Oklahoma, had no choice but to detain the four-legged friend and bundle it into the back of their car after it escaped its nearby enclosure and went on the run.

An officer took to the police force's official Facebook account on Tuesday to post a picture of the hilarious situation along with an explanation.

The statement read: "Our officers encounter unexpected things every day while on duty. This morning, Officer Kyle Canaan responded to a call regarding a donkey on the loose in the 8100 block of 120th Avenue NE.

"To ensure the safety of the animal, he helped transport the donkey to a nearby home for safe keeping until its owner could be

located. It's not every day that you see a

donkey in the backseat of a police car!"

Office Kyle Canaan revealed to the Oklahoma Daily newspaper, he managed to lure the animal into the car with food but regretted that shortly afterwards as he started to defecate on the seat during the short journey.

He said: "It was a huge mess in the back. Huge mess!"
