Best "Get Off My Lawn!"

Motion activated sprinklers at a house behind St. Matthew's Tavern

Look, we get it: Alcohol makes us have to pee too. But one neighbor of St. Matt's got so fed up with patrons of that bar using their garden (which it looks like they've put a lot of work into) as a Porta Potty that they hooked motion sensors up to their sprinkler system. Now, the wee hours of the morning are frequently punctuated by the sudden shrieks of public urinators getting blasted with an unwelcome jet of city water. It's a creative (and hilarious!) solution to an unsanitary nuisance, and has us thinking back to something our grandmother used to say every time we leave St. Matt's: "Do you have to go before we get in the car?"
