A famed Austrian museum has told an employee to piss off after he routinely washed himself with urine while at work.

Serial pisshead Alfred Zoppelt was given his marching orders of 23 years of working as an

attendant at the Belvedere, a castle in Vienna with a major art


He says his adherence to urine therapy was previously

"never a problem."

"I was promoted to being a warden – in charge of the porters there. It

was there that I showed a colleague a DVD about urine therapy. After

that he said I was fired," Zoppelt told Austrian media.

He said his notice from Belvedere told him he was

fired because "you regularly rub urine into your skin, particularly the

face and hands. With this, you soil your place of work … and threaten

the health of your co-workers."

Believers in urine therapy claim it is the body's own remedy against acne, cancer, wrinkles, allergies and much more – but these claims have not been proven.
