    When considering the potential hazards of sitting in your own backyard, "flying poo" isn't usually high on the list.

    But for one New York couple, it became a horrible reality.

    Artie Hughes and his wife were sitting in their yard in the village of Malverne at around 9pm last Thursday night, when an oily substance came out of nowhere and splattered everywhere.

    Mr Hughes says he was told by a policeman that the substance was excrement that had somehow leaked from a passing aeroplane's toilet.

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    I did NOT need to start my day with that story. Burned into my memory, that. Ugh.

    What a crappy thing for the airline to do. I wonder if we are getting the straight poop or will the airline just 'poo-poo' the story?

    Does NY have a heat wave? I live in the Bay Area and there's no way I am going to be found sitting in my backyard at 9pm this time the year ;)
