Another case of yellow urinalism?

April 18, 2011


You know, Lamar, I have to tell you, when we hired Acme Architects to design our new office building, we thought we were getting the very best.

urinal crop 160You did? Really? We never said that. Actually, we’re down near the bottom. Is there some problem?

Er, yes, Lamar, we are not 100 percent satisfied with the way you designed the men’s rooms.

Um, vis-à-vis?

Are you serious? Vis-à-vis putting the urinals right up against the windows, which…do I really have to spell it out? We feel there should have been some plumbing involved.

That? Heck, wait’ll my big mistakes start to show up! Have there been any complaints about this urinal thing from the tenants?

Yes. To be honest, Lamar, it hasn’t done much to help business in the outdoor cafe on the ground level…

I am pretty sure Eugene would like this… heck, he may even wave to the outdoor cafe owner while he goes about his business…

It’s snowing here. Big flakes. I know that because I just took a peek out the window to see if it’s freezing.

You know this picture confirms what most people think about bankers, they think they are high & mighty and like to (number one) all over ordinary folk.

This is the PERFECT example of what we call the “trickle down” theory.

So what do the ladies get in the way of toiletry? Do they face a view? Or have their backs to it? Either way, it’s not a pretty thought.

Or maybe they keep women off the board so they don’t have to worry about a room with a view for women.

Now the board can do literally what they have been doing figuratively all along.
I would be much more disturbed if I could actually see daylight through the bottom of the urinals.

Kinda gives “If you sprinkle while you tinkle..” a whole new meaning.

This particular vista gives a whole new meaning to the term “Weltanschauung”. Sorry, can’t tell you what it means because, well, you know…. ouch.
(Aren’t those 2 u’s in a row, cool? Sometimes I write that word just to marvel.)

No Spin, I was looking for daylight, which would make it dayalysis.

A lofty view for
the Board doing their business
but only for Gents.

@Ladylala: Considering the symbolic nature of what these bankers are doing on the huddled masses below, shouldn’t that be “Weltanschauungskrieg” instead?

If the urine is a voluminous orange cloud when you pee in the pool, it is because you have been taking Bactrim. If you pee is green, don’t eat asparagus. Unless you like that. If it is red, it is due to rhabdomyolysis. See your ER quickly. If it is black, it’s because you really are blind.

The end.

Doc…if any of that snow has a yellow tint, just stay indoors. :)

Well, Mr B, the reason I had to reenter was because all of your faithful readers may be fine readers and answerers, but seeing as I am the only Peeologist around, well, you know. I couldn’t let this go by without offering up answers out of my vast knowledge of Pee. For the Number 2 stuff, I think that Poo Poo Head Johnson Scatologist Extraordinaire knows more about that, so, no asking me out of my field of expertise!

I should have known better than to read the new comments while I had my brekkie…

Well, between the unexpected problems with signing in, and Mr Spam Filter, I find it hard to write everything in my vast array of stuff, expecially on the Piddly Peeology Phactoids, Spinny!

[…] I mean, if you had a complicated task would you give it to these guys in the photos, or to Lamar? […]
