If you ever thought you’d gone to sh*tty picnics and outdoor gatherings at a park, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief knowing you weren’t at the park this day.
Let’s face it, just stepping inside a heavily-used Porta Potti can be a revolting assault on the senses. But that’s nothing compared to the porta potti horror park-goers in Commerce City, Colo., had to contend with earlier this week.
A sudden freakish gust of wind gripped two Porta Potties and lifted them into the air as high as 100 feet off the ground.
Picnickers ran away or dived for cover. Mothers and fathers shielded their children with their bodies. Loose objects turned into projectiles. A tent was pancaked by the wind.
As one of the toilets gained altitude, it spewed a swirling stream of foul liquid that misted down on the park-goers, reports the Daily Mail.
Accuweather described the blast of wind as a “poopnado.”
Fortunately, no one was hurt, and beyond a couple of totaled Porta Potties and probable car dents, damage was minimal.
A man sheltering a child beneath his arms runs in front of the camera seeking shelter.
While a canopy hangs on by its few remaining pegs seemingly seconds away from flying into the air before a group of men hold onto it desperately.
Dozens rush for cover as debris and loose objects are sent hurling through the air, and a mother is seen sheltering her child on all fours.
So the next time you go to an outdoor event, make certain that along with the bounce house, that the porta potties are firmly anchored down, or you could be facing a shower you would never take intentionally.
