back to article Devil manifests in Hungarian bathroom

A Hungarian couple have been reduced to washing in the downstairs sink after the Lord of the Flies' terrifying visage appeared in their bathroom. Poor old Laszlo Csrefko, 52, blew a "fortune" doing up the room, but no sooner had he slapped in a new bath, shower and ceramics then Satan decided to pay a visit. According to the …

    Why don't they

    just turn the tile upside down?

    It's not mold or fungus or somesuch, it's just the pattern of the tile. Flip it over and you likely won't recognise a face in it.

    Now if the face stays the same way, THAT'S the devil at work...

      "flip it over"

      I've had a look a the picture. Upside down it looks like a hooded midget with enormous testicles.

      Damn you Rorschach.

    I would sell the tiles on ebay to anybody who dares to pick it up.

    I am sure some satanic cult would appreciate it.

    After the floor tiles are out, take the opportunity and the earned money to install an underfloor heating.

    Afterwards the bathroom should be fine.

    Nothing can move it?

    Well, no - it's part of the pattern on the tile, you Hungarian muppet. A hammer and a new tile would fix the problem nicely.

    So retiling isn't the obvious solution then?

    I guess that wouldn't garner a story in the Sun though.

    Replace the tile and put more insulation into the walls and ceiling

      I agree

      Yeah I agree 100%, but some people have a desperate need to crave attention and get there 15 mins. I'm sure there is more to this than meets eye, sounds like a scam to get the local housing authority to move them from some drafty old place to a nice new modern one with all the mod-cons!

      Quite a few stories of polter-ghoosties and possesion turn out to be scams for the family to be moved from horrible neighbours, dodgy electrics, drafts, etc.

    That's not Satan!

    Odd, drawn-looking face in *red* bathroom tiles = Manifestation of Satan.

    Odd, drawn-looking face in *blue* bathroom tiles = Some dead Na'vi bloke.

    Get yer ficticious characters straight FFS!

      It's about time!

      That Jesus bloke has been far to prolific with guest appearances in fruit, veg, toast and just aout everything else.

      Nice to see someone else getting some publicity for once.

    Cold Shower?

    Here's an idea, why don't you chip the tile off and replace it with one that doesn't have a slightly blurry pattern resembling a goat?

  12. Just Thinking

    The room is always cold?

    Isn't that ghosts?

      the same thought occured to me...

      ... I mean it's not like Satan is exactly known for having heating problems...

      Quite the opposite.

      Maybe Scumspawn's been fiddling with dials again?

    Laszlo said: "We need some help from God...

    ... or from the spirit world or we're going to seal up the room forever."

    Really? God's a tiler?

    He must be really brassed of that his son got involved with carpenters...

      1. Elmer Phud


        Well, they did a pretty shit job of it

        Still loads of settlement cracks, the heating system is all over the place and the air-con has a tendency to produce blasts of air now and then. Also, the damp proofing needs sorting out.

        There are also issues with some scrotes chucking rocks but apart form that the neighbours have been quiet so far.

        Anyway, it wasn't 7 days - they knocked it out quick and buggered off down the pub.

    Fairly unimpressive... far as Beezlebubb goes. But the blue tile on the lower edge, just next to the plastic box of (presumably) tile cleaner could easily pass as a Lolcat ! Am I the only one to see it?

    As for the freezing bathroom....well, there is a common belief that Satan generally makes it´s surroundings warmer, not the opposite.

    1. Cameron Colley

      I see that too.

      Tile cat is watching you shower?

      wait for it . . .

      With the JayCee stuff they tend to come in bunches - you get one report and there's another one along soon after.

      Expect some more demonic apparitions appearing in various shitty newspapers near you real soon.

      RE: "Devil manifests in Hungarian bathroom"

      Sorry, but having seen the pic of the husband, I'm not holding out much hope for his missus being the twin of Eva Herzigova. Personally, I always thought the Devil would have a bit more taste. After all, if I could pick and choose any shower to spy on, certain young Hollywood actresses would be getting a visit long before the wife of some short, chubby, middle-aged Czech DIYer.

    Yeah Right

    Why would Beezlebubb/ Auld Nick/ The Prince of Darkness/ Peter Mandleson appear in a bathroom to watch a 50 year old Turkish woman take a shower <that would scare even the devil I am sure>. In the devils shoes I can think of thousands of places I would rather make an appearance.

    Spooky bathroom

    "The room is always ice cold no matter how high we turn the heating up and we've just stopped using it because it's too spooky."

    A COLD BATHROOM? How queer.

    I bet there was a spooky ethereal fog when you came out of the shower too, and a ghostly noise when you put the extractor fan on to clear the fog...

    Won't this kipper of Beelzeebub be reproduced on every tile in their bathroom ?

    Also in every bathroom in Budapest, nay Hungary, or even da da da daaa ... the whole world !

    My God, he's actually taking over the system via B&Q and the bathroom suite 0day vulnerability.

    Are they available on eBay ?

    Well, they could be useful, like if you didn't your wife ! For an art exhibition.

    They must be worth a mint by now !

    He could sell the tiles on eBay and then buy a new house with the proceeds !

    a snarling Wolfman in the blue tile diagonally below to the right..

    And do i see Gollum(s) in the blue tile... above to the right and below to the left as well? Both seem to be in the process of throwing up - presumably from the sight of laszlo coming out of the shower.
