Flower Urinals
Kathy Johnston sent along a link to these pictures of artistic urinals created by urinal sculptor Clark Sorensen. (I would love to be able to tell people at cocktail parties that my job was a 'urinal sculptor'.) Yes, they're real urinals, although I don't know if they're actually installed and being used anywhere. Check out more examples of Sorensen's art at I think a fake fly would be the ideal addition to his urinals.

These should be popular with allergy sufferers.

I also note the little signs, some saying the urinal is not connected to water, so do not use it and some saying it is connected, so go ahead if you want to. Are the latter out in the main areas? I wonder.

Wow, i have to admit that i would feel incredibly masculin relieving myself in a flower....

Perhaps if they had specifically scented urinal mints to go along with it,

These are gorgeous.

The chambered nautilus one would be ideal for the restroom at a public aquarium.

Heh. I thought I was the only one to think that they were beautiful.
I'd be happy to pee in one, were I a guy...
