When we posted yesterday's inaugural Busted in L.A. Quiz, we had faith that our readers would recognize it as the bathroom where George Michael had such a hard day in 1998. He went in looking for some fastlove, and he reached the edge of heaven, when — wham! — suddenly, the cops closed in, and he briefly lost his freedom. We knew you were waiting (for us) to post the answer. What we didn't expect were whispers that indicated our research to be a bit careless.

The urinal in our picture is located at Will Rogers Park in Beverly Hills, where George Michael was arrested on April 7, 1998 for engaging in a lewd act we prefer not to describe in too much detail.

If there's any justice, that porcelain bit of history has already been relocated to the Smithsonian, or at least bartered off on eBay for a cool $20.00.
