CAT FLUSHING IS A MISDEMEANOR OFFENSE
The Zine editor award for Strangest Submission goes to:
"When you go into the general public bathrooms and a bunch of toilets flush, it sounds like lots of cats shrieking as they are sucked down the pipes."
We don't know how you know what that sounds like, but we've told security to keep an eye out for any future cat flushing.
