In keeping with the recent spate of OT threads, I thought this was as interesting as most. It appears that New York has been taking advantage of cheap land in Alabama and sending trainloads of their poop there. Someone got an injunction against the dumping (pun intended) and as a result a trainload of crap has been sitting in a rail yard for a couple months. Locals are suffering pretty badly stating that it smells like death.
Humor is in the eye of the beholder, but poop humor is universally funny (unless you live in Alabama).
