This "Port a Potty" has been sitting on this abandoned construction site on F Ave for more than a year.
365+ days of warm sunshine.. 365+ cool nights.
Assuming the construction workers took a dump before leaving the site, I shudder to think what has been growing inside that potty for a year. Either a new bio WMD or a cure for cancer. I leave it to you to to do the wagering. Let us hope that since school is out, some inquisitive kid does not wander in… Continue

They're appetizers and side dishes to go with the famous main courses of… Continue
