Man, it's been a while since we've made fun of Europe, but this was just too good to pass up. Open air urinals in Paris. Yes, you read that right. Yes, it is exactly what you think it is. It's a friggin doggone pisser out in the friggin open in the capital of France.Still not as bad as San Francisco and all the fecal matter on the streets, but this is legitimately hilarious.Why did they do this? Well, they wanted to combat public urination. So they just figured if they put a urinal out in the open that would encourage folks to go to the actual restrooms. In no way shape or form could this plan backfire, right?Once a city of exquisite beauty, art and picturesque scenes is now littered by highly advertised urinals that are sitting plain as day, right out in the open. Words...we thought we'd have an easy time writing this but the sheer stupidity is actually causing us to be at a loss for words.
Pierre: Jean Claude, how can we get people to stop pissing in the street?Jean Claude: How about we put urinals in the street?Pierre: How does that solve the problem?Jean Claude: Well then they're pissing in a urinal, not in the street, it's technically no longer public urinationPierre: That is absolutely brilliant!
People, we're not pulling your leg on this. Or pulling any other part of your anatomy for that matter.If you visit Paris, be prepared to see random folks, pulling up at these not so obscure urinals and draining the main vein, making the bladder gladder, or seeing a man about a horse, right there for all the world to see.Congratulations Paris you've literally solved the public urination problem by allowing public urination except now it's in a decorative box.
