A 64-year-old man from Brisbane, Australia has been charged with public nuisance after being caught pooping on his neighbor’s property, Mashable reports. The man, who has been identified as Andrew Macintosh, had allegedly chosen a pathway on his neighbor’s property as a toilet at least 30 times in the past, which was enough to grant him the title of “poo jogger.” Two of his neighbors hatched a plan to identify him, and the resulting photo is, well, quite the image.
What’s more, Macintosh was the National Quality Manager of the Aveo Group, a prominent Australian property and investment group. Needless to say, he’s now resigned after a photo of him caught in the act was plastered on the internet for the world to see.
“Until yesterday, Aveo Group was not aware of the charges laid against Mr Macintosh,” a company spokesman told The Sunday Morning Herald. “Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr Macintosh. He has tendered his resignation to the company today and is no longer an employee of Aveo Group.
“Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr Macintosh for help that he may require,” the spokesman added.
This story is truly weird, but there’s a way to make it even weirder: Macintosh is hardly the only person in the world with this strange habit. In fact, it’s starting to sound like a trend, as concerning as that sounds. There was the man dubbed the “Mad Pooper,” who used neighborhood lawns as toilets in Buffalo, New York. There was also another “Mad Pooper” in Colorado Springs, who terrorized her neighborhood with her routine dumps during her runs.
As if that wasn’t enough, residents of a Toronto neighborhood are also currently looking for a mystery garden pooper of their own.
Plus, who could forget the lady who pooped on the floor at Tim Horton’s in British Columbia and threw it at the employees who wouldn’t let her use the restaurant’s bathroom? It’s such a mad world out there, guys.
