One Big Toilet

According to the BBC, London is awash in piss:

London streets are being used as a "giant lavatory" because of a lack of public toilets in the city, a conference in the capital has heard. Alan Woods, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, said: "After closing time, many revellers simply can't find a loo to use."

A campaigner said London's street cleaners were dealing with two million pints of urine a year.


And truth be told, its not just London. I recall an occasion about 15-or-so years ago when myself and another US based English blogger of my aquaintence were forced to stand on the parapet of the Fyebridge and pee into the River Wensum in Norwich, only to miss the water and accidentally widdle on a recreational fisherman and a swan.

At least we don't pee on Wes's scanner.

Admit it: you wish you could pee off a bridge without getting in sit-up position.

Have you considered pissing on my scanner? Because that's just odd. Pissing off a bridge is not odd. But it would be odd if Bri did it in a situp position. Actually, it would be incredibly funny. Especially if she could manage to hit a swan with her pee. (A swan bit me in Stratford-upon-Avon when I was 6— they are the one animal I detest.)

I haven't but your wife sort of fessed up to it...

Wes said...

It's not that I "behaved admirably" it's that I don't think I had really comprehended that she scanned them on my scanner. That will teach me for half-listening (and not always reading her blog).

If I could pee w/o removing my drawers, I do believe I'd pee in the streets on occasion too.
