Man Fired For Washing Himself With Own Urine


VIENNA (AP) -- A famed Austrian museum has fired an employee for washing his hands and face with his urine.

Alfred Zoppelt says he was fired after 23 years of working as an attendant at the Belvedere, a castle in Vienna with a major art collection. He says his adherence to urine therapy was previously "never a problem."

AOL Jobs contacted Belvedere and was told that the museum is not commenting further on the incident.
