For those of you who’ve had the unfortunate experience of needing a loo, and not being able to find one in time, you may know the phrase “caught short”.
It seems it can happen to entire provinces too. Apparently, Alberta’s building boom has caused a paucity of porta-potties. You know: moveable movement chambers, transient toilets, shifting shit-houses.
Worst of all, many summer festivals are the ones caught short, so if you’re planning to go watch A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the park, you probably want to bring along a baggie.
All this bladder-bending news comes courtesy of The Globe and Mail’s website, who apparently have been caught short in terms of producing actual news.
