Tikki Tikki Tembo for our technological times.

Have you ever dropped your phone, or your tablet, or your Game Boy, into a spot that is too tight or too deep for your fat/short hands/arms to retrieve? Say, between the couch and the wall? Or between the car seat and car door? Of course you have; it's one of the ubiquitous modern tortures.

Well, next time you commit such a boner, keep in mind the story of Zhang, the 16-year-old boy from Dalian, China, who dropped his PSP between two warehouses, reached int to retrieve it, and became stuck between the two warehouses, according to Fox 13.

Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo Zhang was rescued, and proclaimed healthy. The fate of the PlayStation Portable is unknown.
