A California man was found in a child’s swing Saturday morning after reportedly being stuck for about nine hours. A groundskeeper at the park heard a man screaming when he arrived at work and called the police to investigate.

The man told police that at around 9 p.m. the night before he made a $100 bet with his friends. He proceeded to “lube himself with laundry detergent to get into the swing.” The group left the man in the swing all night long. Firefighters were called to rescue him by cutting the swing chains off. He sustained no injuries.

And THAT’S how you get rid of an annoying friend. Best $100 they ever spent.
