Get Flushed ...

The Bolzano Museum of Modern Art in Italy have recently lost a prize possession - a toilet that, when flushed, plays the national anthem. It caused so much offence that those fine members of the Italian Police impounded the musical crapper.

Prosecutors claim that the Fratelli d'Italia anthem is a national emblem which should be protected and not openly ridiculed. The rolls of judicial paper hold questions that need to be asked, like: who owns the national anthem? Is it unpatriotic to play it in a context in which it could be ridiculed? Judges are sitting and an announcement should be made later this week.

Who gives a shit? Well, a handful of Italians for a start. No news agency will dump this story so it is expected to run and run ...
