Double-decker outhouse says "Management" and "Employees"
New Toilet Facilities Installed at Local Warehouse
A Joke in the Poorest Taste? Or Something More Sinister?

An unlikely structure was discovered in front of the Acme warehouse in Kent, this morning. And no one seems to know how it got there.
Workers arrived for their early morning shift on Thursday to find a "double-decker outhouse" sitting in front of the customer load-out dock. On the top level, there is a sign which says "Management", and the sign on the lower unit, directly below that, reads: "Employees". The hole from the top unit empties directly onto the head of someone who might sit in the lower unit.
"This is in the poorest possible taste," commented Paul Johnson, an executive with the firm. "We can't believe that anyone would think this is funny."
Eric Smith, manager of the complex, vowed to get to the bottom of the stunt. "Whoever did this will pay the price," said Mr. Smith. "We have little management / employee disagreements from time to time, like any large company, but this....this is just disgusting."
Several hourly employees milled around the spectacle during their break periods. Most thought the whole thing was hilarious.
"This is in the best possible taste," John Walker chuckled. "I'd like to meet the man responsible for this and shake his hand."
Pete Ogden didn't quite agree. "This is just going to cause us trouble," he said. "Management will be out to get us for sure, now."
Secretary Carol Joy refused comment altogether, while Dave Smothers thought it was all just mild entertainment with no political agenda attached. "It's just good, clean fun," commented Mr. Smothers. "Personally, I think Gary James is responsible. That's what I've heard, anyhow."
Acme management was busily trying to make arrangements to have the "atrocity" removed and disposed of; however the outhouse remained as of press time.
"This is not good advertising," lamented one member of the management team who asked to be identified as "Caryl. "When I find the responsible party, there'll be some blood-letting. And you can count on it."
