Mich. teen worried about curfew does his best Santa but gets stuck in chimney

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - A teenager worried about coming in past curfew did his best Santa Claus and headed down the chimney.

Unfortunately, he didn't slide down quite as well as St. Nick.

The 17-year-old boy was trying to sneak back into his room at the Judson Center social services agency Thursday night when he got stuck. A worker at the Center heard moaning and followed the noise to the chimney, authorities said.

Firefighters and police officers had to pull him out.

Police told The Detroit News the teen appeared only to have suffered scratches on his back. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Why is it that people can't understand that chimneys aren't just straight holes all the way down? It tapers off to a small metal door at the flu. Now, if you happened to be able to sqeeze through about a 5''x9'' hole then you might be able to get through with some cuts and bruises, not to mention caked in black toxic soot.

Stupid kid.
