    This news story tickled me this morning :D

    A butcher who became trapped in a walk-in freezer escaped thanks to a frozen black pudding.

    Chris McCabe, 70, said he got trapped after the freezer door in his shop in Totnes, Devon, blew shut behind him.

    Stranded in temperatures of -20C (-4F), with the door-release button frozen shut, he said he used the 1.5kg (3.3lbs) sausage as a battering ram on the release mechanism.

    I particularly like his comment at the end: "I'm lucky really. We sell about two or three each week and that was the last one in there."
