File this under the category of: Is this really even remotely necessary?

***Warning overshare ahead. Read at your own risk *****

I'll never forget the first time I realized that boys could actually pee standing up. I was in awe and wanted to be able to do it myself. In fact I tried. I really did. After failing miserably, I gave up. I realized peeing standing up just wasn't to be.

Some gals didn't give up so easily

In all fairness to it's creator, this little contraption was originally created for women who couldn't sit for medical reasons.

But now the creator is targeting a larger market.

Active women.

I'm sorta inclined to give the creator some credit for trying to help out the ladies. But really, I have but just one letter. Y

Seriously, even on my worst day, even in the crowdedest of crowded places where there isn't a pot in sight, even if I'm falling down drunk I'm not going there.

I mean if I have to pee that bad, do I really even have the time to pull out this contraption, place it correctly and then go? Doubtful.

So thanks but uh I'll pass.

Truth is stranger than fiction!

And if you place the contraption wrong you have an unnatural disaster on your hands.

Actually, I remember seeing the "shewee" on Dragon's Den not so long ago.

I saw the Go Girl thing on the local news the other night. I was both intrigued and disgusted.

I am intrigued. I guess if you were big into camping it might be nice. Is it wrong that I am intrigued?

oh my word. I'm with you. I'm gonna take a pass.

Amelia said...

OK, that is just too weird.

As a person who used to do a lot tailgating, I just want to say that it's quite possible for even a very drunk girl to pee while squatting - and that's less challenging than the whole contraption thing would be to a drunk.

Someone used one of these in a crowded bathroom at BlogHer two years ago.

Debbie said...

No thank you. I've just never been that desperate.

My son is little enough to be a sit-down pee-er. Once he learns to stand, he'll be the one in charge of cleaning the bathroom floor.

I probably shouldn't admit this, but when I was little, I wanted to pee standing up. I quickly discovered that this was impossible, so I just started peeing while straddling the toilet so I could face the other ways like the boys did.

This product proves both that some people have way too much time on their hands, and that people will buy anything.

I saw this and thought WTFBBQ WHY? I am glad I was not the only one thinking that. Even as afraid as I am of getting bitten on my hoo ha by something or brushing up against poison something I would rather endure that while out in the woods for 2 minutes than try THAT THING.

I see two ends to a Go Girl experience:

1) There's going to be some funky women walking around with soiled go girls in their backpacks, or

2) You think that Indian cried when there was a little trash on the street? How much do you think he's gonna bawl his eyes out when he has to walk through a wilderness littered with pee-stained go girls?

This is weird. What's next? A ass blowgun so people don't have to sit down to do there business anymore. I mean, I'd buy that, but still.
