Phantom Pooer Nicked

CCTV image of alleged phantom pooer (2006)As a result of a CCTV image being released by British Transport Police earlier this week, the man who has been allegedly defecating in train carriages across south-east England has been arrested. It wasn't Sir Nick in disguise after all. It's Bonney Edwards, a 36-year-old of no fixed abode, who was nabbed at Camberwell Green bus garage. Caught red-handed? Train cleaners are breathing a sigh of relief!

This could be a great opportunity for some Bonney operant condition. If he manages to plop his poo in the loo, he gets a chocolate bar or a cigarette. If he misses, he gets smacked round the ear by an enraged Mrs Mop. To be fully effective, the positive or negative reinforcer must be applied half a second after the behaviour to be modified. So Mrs Mop needs to stand over him with chocolate bar or fist at the ready while he performs. Guaranteed to work, but will the law allow it?

Don't you believe it!
If they transfer him to a UK psychiatric hospital, anything is possible. It all depends what sadistic nutter takes charge of his case. There have been cases where anoretics have been force-fed until they're stomachs explode! I read a book by one psychiatrist who advocated forcing bulimics to eat their own vomit. A little positive reinforcement on the loo, no problem!

I have started a list of those in need of such treatment [some of whom have been mentioned on your blog]. I may be some time!!!

Have you been down Tate Modern's helter-skelter yet? It's free and only takes a few seconds. Your lunch catches up with you a few minutes later!
