Washington DC - The LaFayette Square Historic District's American Piss Society building has lost its leaderboard position as the most urinated upon edifice in the US capital to relative newcomer the Republic of Ecuador Embassy at 2535 15th Street NW.
The new ranking comes amid reports that CIA intelligence analyst Edward Snowden has been granted asylum by the South American republic of Ecuador from extradition to the US on espionage charges.
Taking a leak in public is illegal of course, especially if it amounts to despoiling private property; however DC law enforcement may turn a blind eye to such largely nocturnal activities on free speech grounds given the ongoing wiretap controversy.
Commenting on the development a Du Pont Circle statistics expert said DC's new Top 10 Most-Pissed Upon buildings list also includes the Supreme Court Building judges' parking lot toll booth, the US National Archives Library 9/11 Wing at Constitution Avenue and Ben's Chili Bowl Restaurant on 1213 U St NW.
"Historically they're DC's most hosed down structures," the archivist said, "mostly because of the sheer volume of human waste deposited daily.
"We think the buildings might be on some sort of international piss-takers tourism trek."
Meanwhile in London a 21 year-old student has been fined five hundred bucks for mistaking the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square for a urinal.
"It's not the first time the brutalist 1960s fortress has served as a dual-purpose building," a court usher chuckled.
"Wanna see pics of last night's hosing?"
