Urinal Sculpture - beautiful targets. (I think this site stands on its own. However, if you are in dire need and one of these lovelies is just too fare to run, here is a guide to your local loo, or even better yet your loo on the run. For the true loooligist this compendium is sure to satisfy.)

These urinals are beautiful, but they're also hilarious!

They're lovely, but I can't help thinking the metaphor is a bit weird. I mean, peeing into a flower? I can imagine these featuring in some weird, oversized nightmares, though.

It's always that way. aghhh

The plumbing fittings and fixtures look horrid plugged into orchids & lilys.

And what the hell - no venus flytrap??? No Pitcher plant? No blooming corpse flower? Urinal cakes molded to look like insects. . . How bout a puff of Gold-Bond-Medicated pollen for the boys?

Wow, almost one year to the day later. Weird coincidence.

Oh well, enjoy the other two links. It's just so much potty which seems in keeping with today's roster of monkey diets and googlyeyed nonsense. The whole site seems to have gone to Fark today.

Where's that image of the urinal shaped like large red female lips that was in some stadium or bar somewhere? Reaaaaly creepy. I think they were forced to remove it.

I'm sure that guy considers "people piss all over my work all the time" to be a boast!

Actually they were installed in a McDonald's in Amsterdam, and they were removed after complaints by some American tourist.

4 minutes slow on that one.

The calla lily one is gorgeous. I could actually see that being installed in certain high-end martini bars and such here.

There is more to this post than the urinals. Would you still call it a double if the bathroom diaries were the first link?

I want each and every guy who pisses into these to think:
Little Shop of Horrors.

Have a nice day.

And what the hell - no venus flytrap???
More like a penis flytrap.
posted by weapons-grade pandemonium at 8:28 PM on August 19, 2006


Or would that be Venus Penistrap?

I am shocked, shocked! What about the neighbors' children? This is NOT art.

(ahhhh.... pee shiver)

I like to pee on/in pretty things.

Pistils.

this one (really big jpg) looks like it would be hard to hit.

Top 10 at urinal^.net is nice too.

And religiously themed urinals/toilets would be quite fun. Or one could place a screen inside & chang images.

jeffburdges: Haven't you seen those screens in the urinals in some men's rooms, reading: "Your ad here!"?

isopraxis: They gotcher pitcher plant. Scroll down.

I agree, the plumbing needs improvement to go with something this ornate. They're pretty. I like the mouths from Amsterdam better, but I'm goofyy. I had a cat that learned to flush the toilet, which she did, because she liked to watch the water go down. With one of these, I'd sit in there with her and watch. LOL

Oh, there it is . . . but does it have dead insects in the bottom?
There would definitely be a good stagefright factor with the venus flytrap urinal.

This art takes the piss.
