Overheard conversation

Overheard conversation among staff at an antiques centre: apparently somebody had been urinating in the stock. Urine had been found in some antique cups, vases and anything else suitable for a bit of bladder-emptying.

Actually a fair bit of the stock was of piss-poor quality, surely there are other ways to say so? I mean it's such an oblique comment isn't it? Not to mention risky.

"Do you have any antique cups?"

"Yes, wee have some lovely ones over here."

Maybe someone misunderstood the phrase 'pointing Percy at the porcelain'.

MW - wee are not amused.

M - maybe - there is a pub nearby (:

How would they have got away with it? And were they all male?

JH - I suppose they may have taken items to the toilet then put them back. I assume male, but who knows?
