    Oh, France, what is you doing?

    Paris baulks at 'horrible' eco-friendly public urinals

    'Some argue that the "uritrottoir" - a combination of the French words for urinal and pavement - is discriminatory.

    "Uritrottoirs for men, great. But what about us women? Litter trays? Sexist ideas are not nice," one Twitter user said [in French].

    "They have been installed on a sexist proposition: men cannot control themselves and so all of society has to adapt," feminist Gwendoline Coipeault told Reuters.

    "No one needs to urinate in the street," she added.

    I agree with Gwendoline.

    Surely they are standing in the street but urinating into a container. Allez, Paris.

    If you are ever caught urinated in the street, simply wave your hand in greeting and say, "Bon Jour".

    In your pole, Vince, you have not specified how necessary "if necessary" is. When you get to my age, "necessary" is very necessary!

    And, yes, this is yet one more example of why God is clearly a man and not a woman.

    What caught my attention to this string was only yesterday, by severe coincidence, a little boy with his grandparents in a shop. The little boy exclaimed "I need the toilet", and then almost immediately wet himself quite visibly. His grandparents were laudably very calm. "Now, we've told you about this before".

    Thankfully for the little lad, (I have avoided wee lad) the grandparents had a change of trousers for him.

    We have one of those pop up urinals in our town which comes up from the pavement in the evening. It is quite open and a bit like peeing in a corner but obviously no pee running on the pavement. There isn't an equivalent for women.

    Ah yes, but that's not the full account of events.

    When God was in the midst of doing the old mankind creating thing, he asked each of the man and the woman, "Who would like to be able to urinate standing up?", and the man immediately put his hand up.

    So God said, "OK", then turned to the woman and said "So that leaves the multiple orgasms to you".

    True story.

    I'm more shocked by the fact that it's possible to use the slang term for "urinating" in a thread title, without it being replaced by a load of asterisks. I would never have thought.

    It might be harder to supply suitable facilities for women. Does that mean none should be supplied for men?

    I've learned something today. I've learned that the swear word filter allows the present participle of the p word.

    I'm currently trying to obtain funding to research if the same applies to the f word.

    Oo-er, and doubly amusing given the thread topic.

    I did not know such erections existed. A virile sight indeed:



    Install one of those in our town and this is the reaction you would get:

    I recall on blazer major's stag night in Bristol about 9 years ago there were pop up urinals in the street.

    Noticeably nowhere for the men to wash their hands....

    Arriving late to the party today, and bleary eyed from that's my business, I initially saw the image and mistakenly read your first words as "O Frank..."
    which was lovely for a moment.
