There's nothing funny about this story. Except everyone who I've shown it to so far has laughed. Maybe it's the name of the company: Pot of Gold port-a-potties. Or the photo of the partially melted yellow outhouses (check it soon, it probably won't be on the newspaper's home page for long). Or the $10,000 reward. To its credit, the Mobile, Ala., Press-Register played the story very straight. No jokes about the company name, or the business. After all, we're talking about a potential arson case. There's nothing funny about that, no sir. I hope they catch the culprit soon. Then, perhaps, we can laugh at this story without feeling a little guilty.
Ala. (outhouse) burning
