Jammed with Government Cheese

Toilet explodes at GSA building, injuring at least one employee
An internal memo issued to building employees warned them not to even attempt to go to the bathroom at work.

“DO NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water,” read the memo, first reported by WUSA News Channel 9. “Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets.”
Actually, it sounds like a failed Pressure Reducing Valve. The really pathetic thing is that GSA contracts-out and oversees the construction of Government buildings.
