He had a face only a mailbox could love.
If you didn't want people to stuff your mailbox, you shouldn't have made it so sexy. (via)
Like countless drunks before him, Paul Bennet, 45, found himself too heavily intoxicated to not have sexual relations with a mailbox.
According to one pervert who watched the whole thing from her window in Wigan, England, an obviously intoxicated Bennet pulled down his pants in an outdoor shopping area and started touching himself as he "started to make sexual advances" towards the public mail receptacle.
Prosecuting attorney Katie Beattie recounted what the witness saw for the court:
"His arms were raised in a star position, as he continued to expose himself while shouting 'wow.'"
I would have given anything to be in that courtroom to watch the prosecutor act this out. A quick Google search tells me a star position looks like this:
The woman then witnessed Bennett rubbing up against the postbox with his trousers down before walking away.
Despite the fact that Bennet had already done what the Manchester Evening News describes as "completing the act," the window watcher still called the cops on him. At least she let him finish.
For his crimes of passion, Bennett was given a year's community service and he has to go into alcohol treatment.
As you can see, the mailbox is still in shock.
Bennet was also ordered to pay £50 (about $75) to the "victim" who "watched for some time and was ashamed, disgusted and upset."
Poor thing. It can be hard to find out you have a new fetish.
