STUFF: In Rio Carnival’s past, Thiago Rodrigues could relieve himself of the pressure built up by a dozen or so beers without looking over his shoulder.

Not any more. “You didn’t see me do that, OK?” said the 22-year-old salesman, who was sporting a huge Afro wig and little else, after urinating in an alley set back from one of Carnival’s huge street parties on Saturday.

 “Look, this isn’t something that can wait. Have you seen the size of the lines for those chemical toilets?” Nearby, a man reached inside his skimpy nun’s outfit and shortly afterward emitted a sigh of relief.

Every year, the self-styled world’s biggest party in the Brazilian beach-side city brings with it the pungent perfume conjured up by thousands of beer-soaked revelers relieving themselves on the nearest wall or in gutters.

City officials are now calling time on the yellow tide, which they say is a top complaint of Carnival visitors. Eager to clean up Rio’s act ahead of the 2014 soccer World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, the city is slapping public pee-ers with fines and even jail time of up to two years.
