Bethel to Ban Public Pissing and Shitting

by duncanr

peeing manLocal officials in the small Alaskan town of Bethel are considering proposals to make it illegal to pee or shit in public

It is already illegal under State law. By making it illegal under local law, any money raised by fining transgressors could be retained in Bethel and used to benefit the local community instead of being grabbed by the State

As a money-raising scheme, It’s a good plan but for one serious flaw – a scarcity of public pissers . . .

“City Council member Mary Sattler, who has lived in Bethel most of her life, said she has never witnessed anyone relieving themselves in public”

There is, even among inebriated people, a desire to be modest about things like that,” she said – http://tinyurl.com/c6o4swd

Watch out, USA !

Or do the Americans know something we don’t?

Hhmm, maybe I should start building a bunker at the bottom of my garden ? 😆
