Two National Park Employees Caught Peeing In Old Faithful

From the "Think Before You Speak, Chuckie" files:

Found this story on the WMAR/ABC2 (Baltimore) website. While the story is pretty funny, the final line in the news report was priceless.

It seems two Yellowstone National Park employees figured that if the Old Faithful geyser was going to pee on the park, they'd get their revenge by peeing on Old Faithful. A webcam caught them doing it.

One employee was fined and banned from the park for two years (which will make doing his job rather difficult), but there has been no decision about what will happen to the other man. (Same crime, same penalty, I would hope.)

According to Wikipedia:

(Old Faithful) eruptions can shoot 3,700 to 8,400 U.S. gallons (14–32.000 litre) of boiling water to a height of 106–185 feet (30–56 m) lasting from 1.5 to 5 minutes. The average height of an eruption is 145 feet (44 m).

But it was ABC2's last line that made the article so funny, and not for the reasons they thought.

Luckily for both of them, the geyser was not erupting at the time.

Think these things through before you actually write them down.
