You guessed it; there’s lots and lots of men peeing in the street. Which of course pisses of the locals (get it?)

So they’ve come up with a creative and hilarious solution: peeing back.

The Hamburg locals (Hamburgers?) have started coating some of the city’s walls with water repellent paint. Now, anyone urinating against a paint coated wall with get a nasty surprise:

And the best part? Not all water-repellent coated walls have signs, so there’s no use looking for an unprotected wall. Urinaters beware! It’s pee back time.
