What a Pee-Nis!

“Do you want to drink pee?” demanded David Shaff, administrator for the Portland (Ore.) Water Bureau. “It has nothing to do with scientifically. Most people are gonna be pretty damn squeamish about that.” That was his justification for dumping the entire contents of the 7.8-million-gallon Mt. Tabor reservoir, which provides drinking water to the city, after a 21-year-old man peed into the lake. Shaff had originally estimated the action cost the city $600,000, but amended the figure to $28,500 worth of water, plus about $7,600 in “disposal fees” to dump it. He admits that the city “regularly” finds dead animals in the reservoir, and that doesn’t cause him to order the water to be dumped. “This is different,” he said. Police were called out, but the responding officer didn’t see fit to cite the man. Shaff is demanding that the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office prosecute the unnamed man. “It’ll kind of depend on what the surveillance video shows,” responded a police spokesman. “He’s not out of the water yet.”

A THOUGHT: Well there’s the problem!

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
