image for Busted flush: Palm Jumeirah's famous shopping mall to be renamed Golden Shower Mile amid sewer collapse
Residents have a half mile trek to the nearest alternative facility

Dubai, UAE - Residents of the Oceana billionaire housing complex are sorely pissed as plumbing repairs to their sanitation ground to a halt in the searing 110F tropical heat this week.

"The nearest working lavatories are half a mile down the road on the Golden Mile," estate janitor Mustapha Pee admitted to reporters.

"Don't forget to swipe your credit card for access to facilities."

The exclusive shopping mall may now be renamed to reflect change of usage as queues of cross-legged incontinents waited around the clock for relief in the deluxe cubicles.

Built on the back of recent oil and gas price booms the multi-million dollar resort was constructed using reclaimed sea bed rocks on an artificial archipelago shaped like a Palm Tree.

At the 2006 official opening the man-made island was dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World as UK Premiership stars piled into the development, sinking an average of $4 million apiece for a three-bed condo.

This week's plumbing tragedy saw the development dubbed the Eighth Blunder as furious homeowners slummed it inside their failing aircon-ed homes.

Earlier this year The World - a similar development built to look like the Earth's major incontinents - er...continents! - was reported to be sinking into its tungsten-reinforced marine bedrock foundations.

Locals immediately dismissed the story as a classic Global Warming scare amid fears the subsidence would make properties unmortgageable.

The Dubai National Sinking Fund has further details.
