… Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.

Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions…

    Instead of writing bureaucratese memos and hiring a $400/hr consultant, they might have done better just to lock the restrooms and wait to see who knows how to shit in the hallway.
    Everybody will complain except the one who can do it.

    Jhihad or anarchy, what’s the difference?
    I would introduce a bill to establish the EPA as protected wetlands. Maybe some permitting for pissing on it, during regular hours.

    The EPA is a dark evil that needs to be removed, just like most of our “leaders” in the federal government.

    The EPA, however, is worse. There are no laws or regulations keeping them in check (not that anyone is keeping the Obamanation in check right now either).

    I’ve felt for some time that Obama, Congress, etc. are all a big facade to distract people from what the EPA is doing.

    Well, since the mission of the EPA essentially is to nail all bathrooms doors shut and scream that we have a waste problem, I think it’s poetic justice.

    Not at all uncommon.

    When I was in the dorms at university, there was the “Mad Crapper” who basically did the same.

    In the last decade I heard from the custodial dept of a local national laboratory that they also had a “Mad Crapper” misdepositing and decorating walls, stalls and floors.

    I wondered if the lists of personnel from the two organizations were cross referenced, if they would have discovered the culprit.

    Add to that the epa roster and any other places where such diversity exists, and there might be a pattern, or conspiracy, or secret society, or national endowment for the arts behind it.

    But then maybe those bureaucrats are so full to overflowing that this is just the beginning.

    I’ve heard it called a lot of things (pinching a loaf, launching a submarine, etc. ) but I’ve never heard it called placing feces. I guess you really do learn something every day.

    “escalate their actions”????

    Maybe rub it all over the rest room walls like the ‘Lympians do at the Capitol lake restrooms.

    Yeah, we have a rule at my company that there shall be no placing of feces in the hallway. It’s worked pretty good, so far.
