Port-a-potties are a nasty fact of civilized lifeā€”must we make them worse? A woman at the Newlyn Fish Festival in Cornwall (ā€œThe best and biggest celebration of the sea, seafood and fishing in the UKā€) was minding her own damn business in a portable toilet when she found herself lifted up into the air and transported to the other end of the festival.

A man referred to as the ā€œharbour masterā€ told BBC: ā€œShe got in the loo and then it was picked up and taken to the other side of the harbour with her in it. I think she was suffering from a bit of shock or she thought she had teleported across to the other side of the harbour.ā€

She was uninjured, organizers confirmed on Monday.

The director of portable toilet company Andyloos remarked that this was not a particularly rare occurrence. ā€œIt does happen quite a bit to be honestā€”Iā€™ve done it a few times.ā€
