From My Cold Dead Hand: Swedish Pols Want to Outlaw Stand-Up Urination

|


Via the Twitter feed of Tabitha Hale comes this tale of government overreach:

A Swedish political party is taking a stand against upright urination.

At a county council meeting Monday, the Left Party, or Vänsterpartiet, tabled a motion that would require office washrooms to be genderless with a sit-down-only requirement, reported the news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå….

Vänsterpartiet, known as a socialist and feminist organization, believes seated urination is healthier for men and more hygienic for both sexes.

Whole thing here.

On the urine-soaked cover of what is arguably their best album, weak-bladdered rock icons Pete Townsend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Keith Moon asked Who's Next. In a world in which the mayor of New York seeks to ban large drink cups, the president banned candy at an Easter egg hunt, and Swedes are trying to dictate bathroom habits, we should also ask, what's next?

Time for a Larry Craig link.
