Good Lord! Number 1 in a series of 1

I assure you that the email reproduced below is genuine, and was not intended as a joke.

So what is to blame for this "unfortunate incident"? Cultural differences, stupidity, or an unpleasant prank? You decide in the comments.

Dear All

There has been an unfortunate incident in the Department today after someone used the urinals in house 19 mistakenly thinking it was a toilet. Urinals cannot cope with solid waste and have become blocked. The resulting smell and mess is currently being dealt with.
While I am sure this was an unfortunate misunderstanding, the message is that urinals are not toilets. We have separate toilets for everyone to use.

Many thanks
