MONTERREY, Mexico (AFP) - A 10-year-old Mexican boy glued his hand to his bed to avoid going back to school after the Christmas break, authorities said Monday.

"I thought if I was glued to the bed, they couldn't make me go to school," the boy, Diego, told AFP. "I didn't want to go, the holidays were so much fun."

"I remembered my mom had bought a very strong glue," he said of the industrial strength shoe glue he used to stick his hand to the bed's metal headboard, where he stayed stuck for two hours.

His mother Sandra Palacios was unable to free him and called paramedics and police to help. Diego watched cartoons while they worked to unglue him, eventually using a spray to dissolve the chemical adhesive.

"I don't know why this happened. He is a very good boy," said his mother.

Diego eventually made it school a few hours late. I wonder if this sort of thing works for teh job too.

The saddest part about this story is that he still had to go to school.

It's an experience that will stick with him for the rest of his life.

When I read this topic my eyes were glued to the screen.

He must be stuck on Ikea brand because Ikea brand is stuck on him.

It's stuff like this that kids are bed to do.

It sucks that he still had to Diego to school.

Yeah, I that's all I have. o_Q

Why didn't I think of this?

*glues self to the bed and patiently waits with a smile on face... Wait! O damn it, still one more week holiday... Mom!* :)

No seriously, it's a funny story. I wonder what he told his teacher when he came to school late... :p

hahaha, what a horrible name. I'm surprised Fox News would say something like "living up to his surname."

10 internets to anyone who can come up with the best thing he should name his kid.
