Someone at Glamour HQ Likes to Take Giant Poos, Hates Flushing

There is an amazing and horrendous story over on Gawker about a mystery shitter at Glamour magazine's headquarters. The perp allegedly likes to take big dumps in the toilets on the 16th floor at 4 Times Square (Conde Nast HQ) and never flushes. Never!

For years, the ladies' room of the 16th floor of Glamour has had a mystery shitter who has left enormous packages in various toilets and appeared to purposefully not flush. Despite signs ranging from laminated "please remember to flush" posters and haikus of middling wit being taped inside each stall, the mystery shitter continues to shit, a silent, odiferous protest against a work environment that regularly keeps staffers there past midnight-3 a.m. nights are not unheard of.
