A Vancouver restaurant has come up with an interesting solution to the men-cant-aim problem: Ban men from peeing standing up.
Recently, my wife and I had brunch at the Edible Canada bistro on Granville Island. When I went to use the facilities, I was surprised to see just one unisex bathroom with about six private stalls and a communal sink area
Even more surprising, though, was the sign above the toilet, showing a stick man tinkling into a toilet with a line through it. Yes, Edible Canada has banned men from peeing standing up

The obvious response is to pee on the sign.
I can show them what a “miss” looks like...
If I went in there and saw that, my pee would be everywhere but the toilet.
Their mistake was having a communal sink.
Sounds like this guy lets the wifey call the shots on where they go out to eat by choosing where the granola crunchers can discuss hot topics like “buying/eating local”, etc. He should feel right at home squatting to pee.
If he wants to find out whether he has been overruled, he should choose a steak place for the next meal out. Her answer will let him know whether he squats or not...
Was there a sign over the sink?
Could be a jobs program: the Pee-Pee Police.
I can’t imagine Donald S. Cherry paying any attention to such a sign.
Really, do you expect that anyone other than a sitzpinkler would eat at a place called “Edible Canada?”
In case anyone is interested, I found a couple of the menus for the place.
Looks like your basic upscale/fine dining menu with all the standards. Probably a nice meal, but not enough to make me obey some stupid rule about sitting down to pee.
I gotta admit, though, the french fries cooked in duck fat with bacon aioli dipping sauce sounds really good...
This would be one of those times where I know my B Vitamin regimen would come in extra handy.
And for skimping on type and number of signs...
That was my question, I would just pee in the sink, but then I am a crude redneck who doesn’t know any better.
You can bet on one thing I am not squatting to pee.
Google the top ten Canadians.
People will just get confused an poop on their shoes.
How do they enforce this?
....and just who is gonna monitor that rule?...........and what........
How do they enforce this?
Yeah, this just means the seats will get nasty.
Chief Inspector: Bawney Fwank.
I can attest, the men's bathrooms are infinitely dirtier, stinkier, stickier...than the woman's rooms.
Would not eat there, and I’m a woman. Unisex restrooms, ugh.
Let the men have a urinal or too, and their own restroom, and what happens in the Gents, stays in the Gents.
I Imagine to promote fairness a Chaz Bono look a like stands nearby as the Official Bathroom Bouncer?? LOL....
Man evolved to being bipedal just so we could pee standing up. After millions of years, we’re not going back because some chick says so.
To not offend the transsexuals
Liberalism run amok and eventually to the overrnning of the Anglosphere to political correctness and eventual Dhimmitude and death by the Religion of Peace.
They slit the throat of those who oppose Sha’ria Law and the pussified, self-loathing Canadian Socialists scramble to not “offend” people who voluntarily mutilate their own genitalia.
Where did the White male go? The loser, skinny jeans, noseringed Ipod wearing Justin Beiber’s fearing global warming are going to lead us?
Wow, thank God half my life’s over, I could not imagine what my kids will face in 50 years.
No problem. Pee in the sink
And I thought the American man was being feminized.
Well, now we know why the “Canuck’s” couldn’t win the Stanley Cup. No such problem in Boston.
Real men ignore such signs.
Oh, the feminization of men is a Satanic thing, and his realm includes this whole world.
What God created separate (Gen 1:27), Satan seeks to blur, and what God puts together (marriage/family), Satan seeks to separate.
If guys would sit on the seat as required and then pee against the stall door, they would probably change this policy
It’s not so much that I can’t aim, it’s that I won’t care what I hit if I see such a stupid sign.
Soon after we came out of the caves, men began to mark their territory. If you want to help us, put a fire hydrant in the middle of an empty room... then we’ll stay out of the stalls. Oh, and keep the women out of our room!!!
BTW... why aren’t women required to leave the lid up, so it’s ready when we get there... it would be one less thing for us to do and it would help us focus on our aim.
Many years ago I owned a Country Western bar. We had a seating capacity of 356 and on the weekends we were always filled and often way over capacity. I had to help clean the restrooms. Sure the floor in the mens room was often wet around the pee troff. HOWEVER, the women’s restroom was ALWAYS a filthy pig stye.... I hated that room...hated it, hated it, hated it.
I figure that in a few short years, todays men will start having periods, so maybe it’s a good idea to train them to sit..
“The loser, skinny jeans, noseringed Ipod wearing Justin Beibers fearing global warming are going to lead us?

If you raised them right, they’ll be fine. Our boys (12 & 13) don’t buy into any of that sissy crap. When asked if their classmates do, they confirm the fact, but are okay with their classmates’ decisions, quickly pointing out that it just makes themselves all that more appealing to the girls.
Some things never change.
I expect a significant “piss protest” at this establishment.
poor cleaning crew...
Sounds like a place for hipsters to show up in their fashionable T-shirts and horn-rimmed glasses, and discuss the subtle, yet distinctive differences in various brands of Free-trade coffees.
My thought on the whole issue was "Who's checking?" :-)
Hmm, sit down to pee. Now that is just a PLAN by women to make sure WE put the seat down.
Now they can relive one of their fantasies about not having to put the seat down before using the facilities.
Of course, if they don’t remove the urinals, I imagine it would be most difficult to sit on one of them, but it could bring new life to the old saw
“Damn that water is cold”.
Man and woman arguing about who was better at anything.
The guy finally says
“OK I can pee on the wall higher than you”.
“Fine, BUT no hands”.
Vancouver, where the men’s rooms have tampax machines.
remember in canada the mounties always get their man...
alas poor canada...
Pretty much the theme of this excellent book:
Mike Berry is talking about this.
“We aim to please.”
“You aim too, please.”
IMO this calls for a Jane Fonda urinal target.
Around 1976 there was a semisatire news item about a Senate bill to make men and women equal by outlawing just what this restaurant did (TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION ALERT). Its sponsors said, “Number one is all right but you don’t stand for it.” The article went on to say that the sponsors Sen. McGovern and Kennedy introduced the bill while sitting down.
Anyway, yet another reason not to visit scenic Vancouver which I hear is crime laden and overrun with muzzies.
That rug really tied the room together.
