World Cup Destroys the Environment

A blog at the Guardian reports on the horrors created by the soccer World Cup in Germany:

This has prompted one scientist to warn that the Tiergarten's plant and tree life is in serious danger of dying because of the 100,000 litres of (almost exclusively male) urine being dumped on it every day. 'The urea sinks into the ground as ammonia. In small quantities this is a good fertiliser. But too much acidity leads to over-fertilisation and is bad for the soil,' biologist Tilman Lamparter, from Berlin's Free University, warned.

Ban soccer! Ban the World Cup! Save the Earth! Wait, I mean Save the Beer!

Or as Greg Gutfeld says:

My gut feeling: if you really care about the environment - and I mean ALGORE CARE, then we should be forcing our dogs to urinate indoors and invest taxpayer money to build large fragrant outhouses for other undomesticated members of the animal kingdom. And that includes any member of the Kennedy family.

Note: But it's still okay, i think, for women to pee outdoors. I don't know why I think that way. I just do.

And I have nothing to add to that image.
