So we know just how Melbourne woman Tamara Richardson felt when she looked down into the toilet bowl to check out her work.
Instead of seeing Mr Hankie, however, Richardson saw her new-born son.
“I didn’t even know he had come out. I panicked and pressed the emergency button,” said the new mother, who was lucky enough to be at a hospital at the time.
Remarkably, the baby, which was born four months premature, survived its encounter with the dark side and is now in a humidity crib.
