But Do You Leave The Seat Up Or Down?

This isn’t a Chicago story, but it had to be posted. The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for college students to flush toilets. Why?

Officials with the Pittsburgh Penguins said the hockey team will pick 250 students to help test the toilets at the new Consol Energy Center.

Penguins spokesman Tom McMillan said the test, which is required for all new arenas and stadiums, will involve all 386 toilets and urinals at the facility being flushed simultaneously at 4 p.m. June 10 to ensure the plumbing can handle the strain.

Officials said 125 students will be chosen from the applications and they will be told to bring a friend to help with the event. They said the only requirements are being at least 18 years old and having the ability to flush a toilet.

Well. That last one might be tough for some Cubs fans, at least if you saw the bathrooms at Wrigley Field before they spruced them up this year.
