Brisitsh Tourists Discover "Logging"

And they tell us Americans are "rude."

"Think 'logging' is what brawny, bearded men in flannel shirts do in the Pacific Northwest? Well, logging has an entirely different meaning across the Atlantic, where British tourists have taken to defecating in the swimming pools of hotels at popular holiday destinations in Turkey, Greece, Spain and Egypt. This new form of logging has caused thousands to contract diarrhea and other illnesses."

It doesn't sound as much fun as dogging.

How do you know the culprits are all British?
Are the turds wrapped up and labelled, 'Made in UK!'

mmm - IMO the article is long on hyperbole and short on actual facts and stats.

I'm not suggesting that it's not happening but to say that thousands have been made ill, [thousands? I think that we'd have heard about that by now] and that it's drunken brits that are the only culprits is stretching more than a point.

While such behaviour by British lagger louts would not surprise me in the least, I would think it is being overblown in terms of number of incidents and people getting ill.

But for me the best laugh is at the bottom of the article, following the readers comments, where it says

Wonder if the appearance of British tourist groups will now result in cries of "Scat!"
