A Pirate Looks At Port-o-Potties: Jimmy Buffett fans warned about makeshift toilets in Mansfield

 

Last summer, Jimmy Buffett fans put the town of Mansfield in a shitty situation, leaving the parking lot of the XFinity Center filled with makeshift toilets left over from all-day tailgating parties. We even threw Diarrheaville up there in the headline.

Now, the Mansfield Police Department and Live Nation are done taking crap. Literally.

In advance of the Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band’s concert at the XFinity Center this Saturday, August 20, Live Nation has supplied “an abundance of actual, health-code-compliant toilets that aren’t attached to the bumper of a pickup truck.” That’s according to the Mansfield Police Department, which sent out a warning to fans yesterday on their Facebook page. In short, those “tent toilets”, long a scurge of Parrot Head outdoor revelry and tailgate parties, will not be tolerated.

 

They write:

“Calling all Parrotheads! Here at MPD, we always look forward to the annual arrival of Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers at the Xfinity Center (this year on Saturday, August 20). It’s a fun atmosphere filled with bright colors, inflatables, great food, sand….and since parking lots open at 11am, the fans have a full day of fun in the sun before the show.”

“Although Officer Martell may write like a doctor, we’re far from qualified to discuss the physiology of the digestive system. But we do know that after eating questionably-refrigerated meat and sipping a few adult beverages, you’re gonna need to GO.”

 
 

“Fortunately, the folks at Live Nation New England have supplied the parking lots with an abundance of actual, health-code-compliant toilets that aren’t attached to the bumper of a pickup truck. We want to get the word out early this year that the ‘tent toilets’ will not be permitted (or tolerated). We know, we know…. no one likes to poo in a Porta-Loo, but think of it as an experience to build character. Like showering at camp with a family of spiders.”
