Signs have been installed in the restrooms of the new City Hall in Chandler, Arizona warning residents not to drink the water from the urinals and the toilets. So, if you are passing through Chandler, consider yourself warned!

What the hell is this? Just another example of big government liberals trying to tell you what water you can and can't drink. Arizona IndyMedia has a picture of one of the signs, which clarify that the urinal and toilet water should not be drunk because it's "gray"—that is, reused wastewater. (The new building is "environmentally friendly.") Chandler's mayor explained to the Arizona Republic:

"I'm glad that I saw that sign because I was very thirsty and looking for a means to quench my thirst," Mayor Boyd Dunn quipped. "Seriously, I'm certain there's some regulation out there that requires that type of sign."...

As an aside, he said his private mayor's office restroom doesn't have a don't-drink-out-of-the-toilet sign.

You gotta love government regulation....and you can be pretty sure that this is a result of just that.

The really bad thing is...most "required" warnings are to prevent someone from repeating a stupid act that someone else already committed!
