homeschooling mama to DD 10 & DS 7
ha ha, i know it's not funny...but your post made me laugh! my ds (also 3) is very similar, but he just recently potty trained. i just remind him where he needs to go and leave it at that. my ds doesn't do it on purpose, but he does find his puddles amusing as well. it won't last...he'll return to the potty full-time soon. that's about all i can tell you except...keep spot shot on hand...it's the best on carpets!!

I find that I always have better successes with saying "yes, if" rather than saying "no" or trying to dish out consequences...
Do you have a back yard? Can you create the rule that he can run around nakey-bum in the back yard and pee wherever he likes? (or that he can pee on the ground in some particular area out there) But that if he's in the house, the only appropriate place is in the toilet?
I know when ds was a similar age he went camping with dad and got all excited about peeing on a tree...so when he got home he wanted to pee on every tree...everywhere...
You said that he has the control to pee where he wants, and that this is a purposeful thing. I suspect tha tmaybe it happened accidentally once (or he saw/heard of someone else who did it) and he tried it out...it got a rise out of mom, so now he does it a lot because it's funny or exciting. If you make it 'legal' to pee on the floor (albeit outside) then it looses some of the excitement of a taboo, you know? And while he may pee all over out there for a couple of days, I suspect the novelty would wear off...
