The "Legal to Pee" Prank

As far as street pranks go, this one is pretty sophisticated. And funny. Here's the "legal to pee" prank that hit Nottingham, UK:

The signs, which were put up by pranksters in and around Nottingham, are designed to look official.

They feature a toilet sign and include the words: "Public Urination Permitted After 7.30pm".

Nottingham City Council is now urging the public to ignore the notices as it sets about removing them. [...]

The prank also featured a laminated note, headed with the logo of Nottingham City Council, which said the scheme was aimed at reducing the mess faced by residents outside their homes.

The BBC news site posted this not long after it happened, warning people not to pee if they see a sign like this. Either way, the prank is classic stuff.
