Who on earth decided these were a good idea?

Instead of the Alpine aroma of a fresh mountain breeze, you just get 2 nostrils full of suspended urine particles.

Anyone walked into a gents recently, thought "that's rank" and spotted one of those on the wall?

I used to enjoy the scented cubes in the urinal, they tasted lovely.

That made me laugh (out loud too).

The ones at the bottom of urinals?

It's practically impossible for a bloke not to target them! Like some long-lost prehistoric instinct comes into play the minute we spot scented bleach blocks. If they littered the bogs with these things, I'd probably never go back and finish my pint!

I'd prefer playing pissball - I've only ever played pubicubes, and due to their angled properties, you do get occasional shoe splashback.

That could so easily be taken out of context!

I'll take the synthetic, carcinogenic flowery scents any day over that!!! Eww...

Although us blokes could just take more care when aiming then it wouldnt stink of stale piss in the first place!

I mean c'mon lads we dont have to have a degree in archery or marksmanship to hit the bowl/urinal on target!

Almost it's almost certainly apocryphal (like all good stories ) but the bee picture on Victorian urinals was supposedly because the Latin for bee is apis.

Whilst in principle I agree, being a short person (at 5' 1"), I find that many public urinals are placed just that little bit too high, requiring acrobatics whilst standing on tip-toe to get anywhere near the 'target'. Unfortunately, this also means often there's nowhere other than the floor for the final 'shakedown' as it were

Most times though, I use a cubicle to avoid those problems..... (and providing they work, I always flush afterwards too)

Never been in ANY public toilet where there isnt at least ONE lowered urinal on the wall
