AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — An Augusta, Maine, man is pooh-poohing the city's decision to nix a Dunkin' Donuts by putting toilets in his yard.
David Labbe says a developer wanted to buy his house for top dollar and tear it down to make room for a Dunkin' Donuts. But the deal was scuttled when the Planning Board, backed by neighbors, refused to change the zoning.
To show his contempt, Labbe put five toilets in his yard, which have yellow and pink flowers growing in them. He's now put up a sign saying he wants 60 to 70 more commodes to fully show how he feels.
He tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/19HFaKZ ) that his neighbors angered him by opposing the zoning change, so he's doing the same to them.
Neighbors call Labbe's behavior childish.
