Public Urination Permitted
Pranksters have placed signs in various places around Nottingham stating: "Public Urination Permitted After 7.30pm".

The Nottingham City Council wants everyone to know that the signs are not telling the truth: "It is an offence to urinate in public and these signs have been put up illegally, for whatever reason."

This prank is basically the opposite of one I reported on over a year ago in which pranksters placed signs in public lavatories that read: "Think Green. Think Safe. Do you really need to go?"

Hey, what happened to the feed on this site? I only just realized after what, six months? a year? that I haven't been seeing this in my feed. Only realized when I just followed a link from BoingBoing.
