What is this, some sort of pissing contest?

October 10th, 2013 · 36 comments

Our submitter spotted this sign next to the door of a video game shop in Australia. “I’m left wondering how often this must have occurred to warrant the sign,” she says.

Personally, my favorite part is the unusual choice of the word making. What exactly is going on here? (“That’s it, Alfie. If you really want Bioshock Infinite, you’d better face the wall and take a piss first!”)

PARENTS!! PLEASE STOP MAKING YOUR KIDS PISS IN THE GARDEN!! IT F#$%IN STINKS!!

related: How many times did this have to happen before they put up a sign?

    It’s probably just the outdoor cats.

      It’s Australia. I don’t think there is such a thing as an indoor cat there.

      Also, the outdoor cats weigh 120#, they can tear a man to pieces with their razor-sharp claws and fierce teeth, and at night they slink through the darkness as silent as a summer breeze. Oh, and they are black panthers. I may have forgotten to mention that. Probably should have led with it, my apologies.

      (Don’t believe me? australianbigcats dot com is a site run by someone who’s totally not crazy, devoted to compiling the let’s-charitably-call-it-”evidence” of black panthers roaming the Outback!)

      We need to get in touch with that troll from several posts back, whose job it was to shoot feral cats. Get working on the real culprit! It’s the elusive Australian Panther!

      The Elusive Australian Panthers? They were my high school football team!

      YES! I’ve always wanted to name a band.

    Maybe it’s the Australian version of rednecks who believe you pee whenever you feel the urge wherever you are. If there isn’t a bathroom handy, head for the nearest green space.

    Maybe if they allowed them to use the restroom, the store wouldn’t have this problem!

      They could totally use the bathroom at Netflix.

    Just a note because I enjoy posting here and the regs really crack me up (especially elf and toy)…

    This 45yo nonsmoker, athletic, mostly healthy woman has been given about six months to live, maybe 12-14months if I have a certain genetic mutation that would allow me to take treatment in pill form.

    I look forward to this site being one of the things that lightens my mood in the coming months.

      We love having you here, and not just because you inflate our egos. I’m sending prayers, positive thoughts and hugs your way. Is there a way to keep in touch with you outside of PAN, other than posting all our personal info here?

      I sincerely wish you the best Red. You’re one of my favorite posters here and have brightened my day on more than one occasion. Remind yourself every day that there are numerous people out there who have managed to extend their “six months” into many admittedly tough, but also joyous and productive years. Please keep us updated on how you’re doing.
      *hugs*

      Red, I don’t always know what to say in times like this, but I do want you to know that I will be praying for you. We love you here, and I personally enjoy reading your posts. I will follow your progress on your caring bridge page. I too am sending hugs and well wishes your way. And I’m sure if you have any special requests to help make your hospital stay a little more pleasant, your PAN family will join forces to make it happen. Perhaps ANOTHER cat debate? Sitting vs. hovering? Break room bandit drama? You name it, Red.

      Seriously sweetie, that firmly sits in the “That freekin’ sucks” category. Sending you good vibes through the interweb. Hoping in your case that this will end up being one of those miracle cure scenarios.

      Why don’t you just “request deletion” for that comment? I think it’d better that way.

      Redhead, your news made me so sad. I saw your post the other day, and I’ve been waiting to hear more. I was really hoping it would be good news. I am devastated that it isn’t. I’ve always enjoyed your wit, your sarcasm, your expansive, interesting, adventurous worldview. You’d better have that mutation, and I second Lil’s statement–whatever PAN you want, we’ll do our best to make happen.

      Redhead (from a fellow redhead)
      I so enjoy coming here to read your comments, as well as others. PAN, for me, is a little break from my reality, a chance for a quick smile or even a laugh. You have been the seed of more than a few chuckles. I’m writing this while waiting for results of my own. So here’s a suggested topic: lunch-stealing outdoor cats that hover. Keep the faith!

      Just wanted to send love, hugs and a huge thank you for all the laughs red…… like all the other PA posters I’ve always loved your work. I’m so sorry you’ve been given such crappy news. I adding my support for Lil’s suggestion about a special request. Good luck sweetie, keep us posted.

      Love from Wench x

      Dammit.

      I, too, suck at this sort of thing. (And it doesn’t help that I’ve cut ties with all of my biological relatives — long story, definitely not worth going into — so, without any appreciable family in my life, I’m not likely to get all that much better at it. Just one of many reasons why family is important, kids. Unless they really suck ass.)

      Anyway: I suck, useless in situations requiring empathy, yadda yadda. So, having acknowledged that, to redhead let me just say this:

      Fuck cancer. Fuck it right in the ear! :-(

      Geez, that blows; I’m so sorry Red. Please do let us know if there’s anything that we can do, especially if that task list involves delivering PA notes and/or flaming poop to people you don’t like.

      I do hope that it’s just a giant lab/hospital error that will require us to come help you strangle somebody and leave a PA note attached to them on top of a pile of (outdoor) cat poop, though.

      I’ve been battling with what to say – cause all I want to do is curse about how unfair this is and how this should be happening to someone who deserves it like Casey Anthony or Roman Polanski.

      And I know that’s probably not what you want to hear.

      I just know you brighten this place up, Red, and this fucking sucks. And I just want to run through your lungs and slay it like it was some dragon.

      Sorry, I’m awkward with words a lot of the time.
