superglue-hat AN over-enthusiastic Halloween reveller found himself in a sticky situation after superglueing a tiny black hat to his head.


Shaven-headed Shawn Merter was keen to wear had a tiny sequinned top-hat as the crowning glory of his Halloween outfit, but rather than tie it on with string, he superglued it to his head.

In a cringe-inducing YouTube video he said: "I had fabric glue which is washable, but it wasn't sticky enough."

The point at which he realised his mistake is unclear, but the next morning an embarrassed Shawn was at his local Accident and Emergency department in a bid to have the headpiece removed.

His understanding boyfriend was there to offer support and muffled giggles as the doctor gave him the bad news; the best they could do is cut off part of the hat, leaving the rim stuck to his scalp until it came off on its own.
