Skip to comments.German men told they can no longer stand and deliver (The "Sitzpinkler" rumors are TRUE!!)
Posted on 12/19/2004 12:19:04 PM PST by gobucks
German men are being shamed into urinating while sitting down by a gadget which is saving millions of women from cleaning up in the bathroom after them.
The Water Closet (restroom) ghost, a £6 voice-alarm, reprimands men for standing at the lavatory pan. It is triggered when the seat is lifted. The battery-operated devices are attached to the seats and deliver stern warnings to those who attempt to stand and urinate (known as "Stehpinkeln").
"Hey, stand-peeing is not allowed here and will be punished with fines, so if you don't want any trouble, you'd best sit down," one of the devices orders in a voice impersonating the German leader, Chancellor Gerhard Schroder. Another has a voice similar to that of his predecessor, Helmut Kohl.
The manufacturers of the WC ghost, Patentwert, say they are ready to direct their gadgets at the British market.
Their prototype English-speaking WC ghost says in an American drawl: "Don't you go wetting this floor cowboy, you never know who's behind you. So sit down, get your water pistol in the bowl where it belongs. Ha, ha, ha."
They also plan to copy the voices of Tony Blair and the Queen.
So far 1.8 million WC ghosts have been sold in German supermarkets.
But Klaus Schwerma, author of Standing Urinators: The Last Bastion of Masculinity? doubts whether it will ever be possible to convert all men.
"Many insist on standing, even though it leads to much marital strife," he said.
In German, the phrase for someone who sits and urinates, a "Sitzpinkler", is equivalent to "wimp".
I believe that William Jefferson Clinton is a Sitzpinkler.
I believe there is a similar proposal for the US Navy.
It's just a joke. There are plenty of similar, silly things in the US that are equally if not more outrageous.
Surpringly there are a large majority of them in Utah.

I dunno .... I sense it is not a joke at all. I mean in the sense that this 'humor' has any legs at all to start with.
Here's why. The fact this stuff can even be sold in Europe is the joke. Trying to sell that stuff here would never work....
Please, tell me you are kidding!
"I believe that William Jefferson Clinton is a Sitzpinkler."
He better be, with his staining proclivities...

If I encountered this situation I'd pee on the floor
I don't think my local Rod & Gun Club are going to stop labelling the restrooms 'Setters' and 'Pointers' at the annual banquet!
For the benefit of visiting Germans, we'll have to post a "Sitzpinklern Verboten!" sign in the Men's.
As the mother of a male child, I've had to deal with men who can't aim. Don't the Germans get similar training, or is it too Freudian?
And their stupid voice-alarm. Can anyone doubt that feminists want to emasculate men?
The Euroweenies invented a nagging toilet seat?
I would find the damn mechanism and rip it out.
Remember when cars used to nag us? That didn't last long. Real Americans would never let a TOILET nag us!
I'm drawing a line in the head over this.
