Thursday Thoughts - Urinals, Games and Advertising



Esteemed urinal designers of the world,

Such crazy creations you've recently unfurled!
Games and peeing are officially swirled
into one enjoyable activity
which was already fun enough (if you ask me).

Many bring cell phones into the stall,
which germaphobes totally, completely appal.
while they stand erect and pee in line?

It's nice to imagine men emerging proud
and stating their high score out loud
then high fiving bro's for hitting the mark,
but how long 'til they see who's the best in the dark?

That is not a rock concert I'm dying to see.
How can one avoid creating over spray
when spraying a "guitar" in order to play?

While the diagnostic urinal sounds quite helpful
I can foresee many issues with which you would wrestle.
Men would likely trust what the little box said
though the sample's not sterile enough to be read.

It seems like you want to sell lame advertising,
interrupt our solitude and cause an uprising.
Women will revolt if the mess gets messier
and men will destroy ads yelling, "Wi, wi Miseur!"

Good luck with your plans to change men's peeing style!

Sincerely,

Rachel Hoyt

  10. I don't know if this really refers to some type of improved urinal, or just iPhoning in general at the urinal, but it was very fun to read. I must say I'm getting the habit too, much to my displeasure... but I am so busy! :) On the subject of urinals, I just got back from Finland, and theirs are twice as high as in the US. Pity the poor shorter blokes. Then there's the walls lined with soft porn, at Zetor's... but that's another story! :)
