Is there anything worse than needing to pee and not being able to find a bathroom?
Festival-goers at this year's Mardi Gras celebrations can breathe a sigh of relief, thanks to a new app called AirPnP which lets you pay to use a stranger's toilet facilities.
Launched just in time for the giant street party in New Orleans, the concept is similar to that of its namesake AirBnB -- 'entrepeeneurs' can list their bathrooms on the site and charge a fee for desperate revelers to use their facilities.
'Guests' can pay via the app or in cash and even rate the quality of the toilet paper after their stop. All bathrooms are located along the Mardi Gras parade route, can be located through the app and can cost up to $5 per use.
The brainchild of web developers and hackers Max Gaudin and Travis Laurendine, AirPnP is currently only available in New Orleans but could slash the number of partygoers at the event being arrested for 'rogue pees'. And the legal alternative has proved popular -- the site has seen over 1,200 people sign up to use its services since it was launched.
