ATTN: Men and Poison Control Nurses

  1. So I went to the orchestra the other night with my lovely wife. During the intermission I went to the men's room. There, on the urinal was a label from the sanitary company that read, "Please don't eat the urinal cakes. Thank you."

    Now I feel compelled to ask: Is this a problem?

    well you know how men can be? they see the word cake and they are all up in there!
    (think homer simpson ..... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm cake!)

    and whats more convienient than gnawin on some delicious cake while you whiz?

    chocolate urinal cakes - One stop shopping!

    seriously ,thats just gross, and poisonous and disturbing all at the same time ...

    I do however bet that there is a support group somewhere for all the drunken men who have taken a lick off the good old urinal cake from time to time

    I think of all the confused guys... first time in the big city, first time at the orchestra. They're already befuddled by the giant fiddles in the back row. All they want to do is toss back a cold brewski and take a whiz. Finally! Intermission! A quick dash off to the latrine. "Boy I could use a bite to eat ... Hey! Look! A cake! And conveniently located in my urinal! I think I'll just grab -- wait! What does that say? Hmmmm... thank goodness for the warning. Another social faux pas averted!"
    OK, a good nurse friend of mine also owns a bar. ---->

    Anyhoo, they apparently purchased these urinal cakes that had some sort of cute saying on them or something? I can't remember the specific detail, but it was a really cool urinal cake, if there is such a thing.

    Well, one night they were stolen. Just gone. And I'm wondering, what kind of place you have to be in mentally to smuggle dirty urinal cakes out of a bar.

    Apparently you men are fascinated by the cakes.

    hahahahha the miss manners of the world thank you for bringing this to everyones attention
    you have done a valuable public service here , I applaud you
    but wait, this just in , I was emailed this photo from a top secret source....... the attachment said "dont let johnny gage fool ya, he wants to have his cake and eat it too!"

    much to my shock and disbelief I opened the picture and wasnt sure what was more disturbing , the fact that he wore a denim shirt to the orchestra, or that he licked the bowl clean!

    I've met some guys who should munch on them as a breath mint replacement.

    I didn't know these things existed until a few months ago.

    Pardon my ignorance--I have never set foot in a mens' room (nor do I ever plan to do so!), now just what is a urinal cake?
    Ohhh my... any excuse to Google.

    They are deoderant blocks used in urinals. The sit in there, and get covered in urine before people eat or steal them.
