Do the Rolling Stones know about this?


"The thing that surprises us the most," Lackner said, "is that no man has ever said anything about this."

wonders how many men are simply urinating....

"We think that it's tasteless, misogynistic and offensive, and we got a really great purchase offer from the Clinton library."

Hmm ...well I for one wouldn't find it 'offensive' if they did the same in women's bathrooms...make the toilet in the shape of man's mouth. It would be just as 'funny', right?

Um, is this a pay toilet?

The urinals first made a splash during recent campaigns for national elections, as they were the only facility available near Austria's National Opera.

It's never good when a urinal makes a splash.

I KNEW WHEN I CAME ACROSS THIS ONE YESTERDAY WHERE IT WOULD BE TODAY. CONGRATULATIONS

They brainstormed your idea, Siouxie, but unfortunately it was vetoed by Ms. Lipschitz.

dang!...there's always some tight-@ssed byotch ruining the great ideas, Nebbisk.

Siouxie - But, wouldn't the tongue be kinda in the way???

Not if we make it a 'movable tongue'...opens up a whole new set of uses for that toilet ;)

ok..that IS kinda gross...

"We think that it's tasteless, misogynistic and offensive," Marianne Lackner

I think that's the point.

But how come these women are offended by anything in the men's john?

gross, but potentially lucrative.

I dunno...if I had something ...uhh... dangling over teeth that big, I'd probably just pee in my pants...because you never know who has their finger on the remote control..

I bet ya anything, the men still miss...even with such an attractive target.

casey, you're right. If it were a whole face, they'd be hitting it in the eyeball or something.

siouxie, would that be the voice of experience...?

ewwww thank GOD no, crossgirl!

*likes my showers not of the golden kind, IYKWIM.*

Didn't actually know what Misogyny meant but here is the wikipedia article.

Um. I'm hard to offend but yeah, those are pretty gross. And if the situation were reversed, as some have suggested, it'd STILL be gross and I would look for a different restroom.

I do however understand why the creator of these things thought it would make a good joke. There's a sort of surreal or absurd quality about the things, and I get that, but it's still gross.

OK, help me out here. Are men's and women's mouths shaped differently? I'd never noticed. Now, women tend to put lipstick on their mouths and men don't. But a man could put lipstick on his mouth and end up with "urinal mouth" too. Or am I missing something obvious here?!?

Brad - Perhaps it's best not to think about it too much.

Did anyone else notice that there seems to be a well-stocked bar in the lavatory, as well?
