The sausage fest of horrors

February 22nd, 2010 · 94 comments

Which of these urinal notices do you find most troubling?

This one, from a London nightclub?

Attention Gents: Anyone caught taking photos of other gentlemen's wedding tackle will be ejected. By order of Fat Tony

This one, from a construction site in New York City?

One of our poor co-workers is suffering from a terrible affliction.  He can't see the color yellow bithout breaking into Uncontrollable Tears. Help him by flushing those tears down the drain.  Men don't like to see men Cry, -A CM Public Service Announcement

This one, from a campground in Russellville, Arkansas?

Please do not wash dishes in the urinal

Or this one, from an office in Redmond, Washington?

Your Attention Please!  This urinal is not a sausage dump. Please discard unwanted sausage in refuge containers, not in this, or any other, urinal. Urinals are designed to receive urine, not sausage products.

P.S. “Sausage dump” wasn’t a euphemism.

Urinals are not for sausages.

    I wanna say “That sausage was fucking delicious!” but I just can’t bring myself to do it without dry-heaving.

    Please, won’t someone think of the sausage?

      Women might find this unbelievable, but the one time when every man is at his most serious is when he, while taking a restroom break from a concert or sporting event, is standing side by side with his comrades, pissing into his designated urinal.

      Lost in his own thought, he stares straight ahead, maintaining a facial expression that would normally indicate that this individual is posessed the inner fortitude of a martyr and the calm, austere demeanor of a 19th Century German Stoic.

      Men take pissing seriously.

      So, with that said, I would remind others not to make the same mistake I did at a recent NFL game. I’m standing there pissing. I hear something to my right. I look over. The bearded redneck warrior standing next to me thinks that I’m checking him out. Awkward. Thinking quickly. I look the other way. Same reaction. My only recourse was to continue scanning down the respective lines so as to make it clear to each of the previous gentlemen that he alone wasn’t being singled out for scrutiny.

      This seemed to seemed to tamp down the angst in the room, but it all could have been averted had I kept my eyes staring straight at the wall in front of me.

      Then again, once the first mistake was made, I should have just loudly announced that I was a Democrat in order to put their warped minds and their pissy attitudes at ease.

      To make matters even worse, it was a lousy game. (But it was the Seattle Seahawks, so that kinda goes without saying.)

      I have two step-brothers who (obviously) look nothing like me. Occasionally when we’re out drinking and are in a crowded bathroom, I like to lean over to one of them while we’re at adjacent urinals, look down and casually say, “Nice cock.”

      You’ve never heard silence like that in your life.

    In another life, I ran an Officer’s Club, where the guys had a bad habit of leaving cig butts in the urinals. I placed a sign above said urinals–”Please do not place cigarette butts in the urinals.” Somebody wrote under that, “It makes them soggy and hard to light.” I wish I had saved that sign.

    • #14.1   infant tyrone bang

      No…no salami in the urinals either.

      Salami in the “gents” bathroom is restricted to salami being “hidden” in the privacy of (but not “in”) individual stalls, usually after a serenade of foot-tapping and a delicate, but widely-stanced, rendition of the opening pas-de-deux from Cleopatra: Queen of Denial (A Mack Senate Comedy).

      Often reprised in Minneapolis’ airport: rain or shine, snow or not.

    Maybe the sausage phenomenon is similar to all-you-can-eat sushi where you get charged for leaving rice behind – a breakfast buffet where diners get dinged for uneaten sausages? Unfortunately it seems the person trying to get rid of unwanted sausage doesn’t understand how urinals work.

    oh wait, the sign was in an OFFICE bathroom? no no, none of this makes any sense at all.

      I’ve asked bar owners about that before and they have said they really don’t know why they do it, it’s just something that’s been passed down to them. But the prevailing theory is that it helps keep odors down because as the ice melts it keeps a constant trickle of water flowing down the drain.

      i have a real and non-funy answer to this question.

      the cited reason is for splashing – i’ve had to wash the walls too many times.

      the real reason is that we hope men will invent a fun little game and try to melt the ice, the happy side-affect of which is that they are actually aiming, making our job at the end of the night much more pleasant.

    Maybe the urinal is a multi-dimensional portal where things that vanish from other places appear. So far they’ve found a stapler, a few thousand Hot Pockets, a chihuahua, a cell-phone, Baby Jesus (and his Lean Cuisine), and diamond cream. In a lunchroom in Hoboken, there is a furious note on the fridge denouncing a heartless sausage thief.

    Don’t construction workers often wear yellow hats? Or is that a stereotype?

    I thought urine was a sausage product…or is semen the only true sausage product?

    no. 3 is why cocktail sticks were invented, you wouldn’t want to scoop it out with your hand for a taste.

    What exactly is a “refuge” container? And what size would such a container have to be, in order for one to take refuge within it?
