SEATTLE — A quiet morning at the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct was interrupted Sunday when officers found a man burning a paper bag full of his own feces behind the building.
The man also pleaded ignorance that it was against the law to burn bags of feces behind police stations.
They arrested him on charges of “reckless burning“. Hey, the guy was standing right there, monitoring the fire like a good boy scout! And the Seattle cops really need to get with the protocol on these things: you’re supposed to run over and stomp out the fire; everybody knows that.
On a related note, why do people refer to it as “taking a poop”? Really, aren’t they leaving a poop? Curious. Oh, and couldn’t resist the Zappa reference.
