The scary thing…

…isn’t this post by Ken over at PopeHat:

…nor its punchline:

Chandler’s new City Hall comes with some features that have municipal workers and visitors scratching their heads. Like the restroom signs that tell people not to drink out of the urinals and toilets.

…but the preponderance of comments thereupon which purport to justify the warning that employees and visitors should refrain from drinking toilet and urinal water.  For example, this gem:

Generally, the assumption is that water used in plumbing is potable. I think it’s a good idea to have regulations to require a notice when it isn’t.

As John points out, in the event of an emergency people may need that water, and it’s important to note when reclaimed water is being used.

If you need a sign on the wall to tell you that drinking from a container that people shit in all day long is a bad idea, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised.

    “If you need a sign on the wall to tell you that drinking from a container that people shit in all day long is a bad idea, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised.”

    Unless, of course, you are a dog.

    And even then supervision might still be a good idea.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with
    internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks
