ALLENTOWN, Pa.- A Pennsylvania minor league baseball team announced it is installing urine-controlled video games in its men's rooms.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, a Class Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, said the "Urinal Gaming System" is being installed on the urinals at Coca-Cola Park n Allentown, Pa., making the venue the first sports stadium in the United States to have urine-based video games in its bathrooms, U.S. News and World Report reported Wednesday.

Captive Media, the British company behind the games, shows a snowboarding slalom game in the demo video for the systems.

"To turn left, pee left ... to turn right, pee left," the video said.

Players are given codes at the end of the games to put into an online leader board.

"These games are sure to make a huge splash," said Kurt Landes, the IronPigs' general manager.

I see two problems with this:

1) it violates title nine as chicks can't play.

2) one would be far more Likely to get pissed ON as opposed to pissed OFF, if the guy next to you is losing and over corrects.

Wives might buy these for the home. Some guys need practice with their aim.

Isn’t this discriminatory against females? Hope I don’t get banned, but, females can’t play these games, can they???

Our national debt is now 17 TRILLION DOLLARS. Future obligations, another 200 Trillion. Other debts, such as from the fed printing money, and debts that will NEVER be paid back (like student ‘loans’) many trillions more.

Huh?? Farther left?

I hope not. Ballpark restrooms are bad enough without that and it would certainly create more work for the janitorial staff.

I see my friend wasn't lying that night he got drunk and discovered a restroom with a golden urinal.

Here I thought he'd just gotten blitzed and p!ssed in a musician's saxophone.

I hear that the YMCA is big on water sports.

Sure we can, but participating men would have to adhere to the “no hands” rule. :-P
