This is an FPP? Boo.

Now don't get pissed!

Somebody just tossed a FPP at my feet and I doubt the quality of what's inside it.

Who's going to dip their finger into this thread and smell it ?

Mailmen with five penises have needs too, you know.

When your first reaction to someone throwing a latex glove of what appears to be piss is to put your fingers in it, you've got to re-evaluate what you're doing on this great blue earth.

Is he going to offer me 50 numbered gloves filled with different volumes of urine?

Container of urine discarded out the window of a moving vehicle? Not a new story out here in the west

Yeeeuck.

That is all.

So just because a guy throws a wet glove out the window means he was peeing in it? Silliest part: the author purports to explain "why Brooklyn smells like piss" when he can discern no odor from the discarded item.

I am even MORE disappointed in this thread than I was about the dirty Japanese toilets.

Perhaps they can join forces and have mailmen throw piss-filled gloves at Japanese toilets and we can have ONE decent FPP.

The only redeeming quality of the linked article is that the Consumerist people dipped their fingers in piss -- which is exactly how I feel when I read their whining, shrill, poorly written complaint website.

Somewhere in Brooklyn, there's a postman telling his buddies about the time he filled a latex glove with urine and threw it out the window to see who'd stop and smell it.

Here's a solution that's billed as being perfect for all night gamblers - it might work for postmen too.

So you're saying you're the mailman in question, and the glove was filled not with "number one" but "number three"?
