All you have to rely on is your own taste. I think your taste is excellent. The reason I first came here is because you were moaning about some women throwing her breasts at Mr. Clinton.I thought that was tasteful, though, or at least hilarious, so I remained.Good taste is probably a Victorian idea. In our era, of what does it still consist?Philosophy of good taste is a matter of production and design, same as at any corporation. The main thing is to attract our interest, and to do that you have to be at least as alive as the vulgar manifestations elsewhere on the net.Pump it up, pump it out, kick back, watch the meter roll.
Americans have a hard time wrapping their minds around the concept of Permitted Public Peeing. So an alfresco trough signals "sink" to our minds.Lyon, France, had the open air pee corral along its river banks, with a panel at waist height for modesty without privacy.Irish pubs have their own unique spin. Although enclosed, I was hard put to find the urinal. Luckily a fellow came in, faced the attractively tiled wall, and let fly. It was then I noticed a gutter running along the bottom of that wall.
Taste? Isn't it bad enough that he washed his hands in it? You want to consider taste? That is inappropriate!
I'm thrilled with learning a new word: pissbuck. Now... anybody know how it's supposed to be spelled?
Some of what you post is certainly earthy enough, but we're all grown ups. If someone doesn't like the subject, they can find something else.You do, however, have a rep for sophistication, class, wit, and style, to which this topic obviously doesn't measure up, so I think you probably want to draw the line somewhere, or else you'll look and sound like Kos or Puffington..
Didn't you just blog it?
So now you're reduced to Pee-pee humor? I stopped finding it funny at ten.Sometimes "earthy" is just a code word for stupid.
Come on, RC. That's a funny clip.
I want a YouTube video of Althouse saying "Pissbock".
Right, Americans have a hard time pissing in a trough. Except, that is, for any American who has been to a baseball stadium.Oh, and the guy who washed his hands in piss is a Canadian.But thanks for playing.
I contend that all American men would piss anywhere they were at the time if they could.
"I'm speechless."It's 'cause of that thing in her lip.
Yeah, not only Baseball games, but I remember these troughs from Public restrooms in National Parks and elementary school - but they usually had a constant stream of water.
got two words for you: "rare clumbers".
Big deal. The guy's probably just a baseball player.I liked the pic of Venus's ass better.
I wouldn't avoid it for reasons of taste, but perhaps because I've seen it elsewhere already.
I voted no, but the video was really funny. I guess one could say I'm conflicted.
I thought it was funny and see no problem in blogging it, but I ansered the poll with the fourth choice, because I thought that was funny, too.
I;ll bet that guy'll be relieved to get back home to Boise.
Dutch women are marvelously zaftig.
"Triangle Man said... I wouldn't avoid it for reasons of taste, but perhaps because I've seen it elsewhere already."That's why people may be reluctant to shake your hands.Honestly, that is probably NOT one of the things that you want to say doesn't impact you because you've seen it happen before..."Did you hear about the man arrested for swimming naked and spotted by boaters sexually fondling a porpoise. Isn't that shocking??"Triangle Man - "Not really, I've seen it elsewhere already".Of course we all know what triangle man MEANT...but it is a line you can pounce on.===============As for the video itself, it is not obscene. Just really really disgusting and funny.
I can see quite a few comenters have never tried to find a place to pee in New Orleans on Mardis Gras day...
Strangely opportune timing for him to show up right then, be the only one who did, and do what he did. But, if it was staged, it was fine acting.And what's with the lip ring. That's so 2005.
I wouldn't, it's a debase debate. Especially given all the non-debasing alternatives.
I voted 'yes' before I clicked. Thanks -a reminder to me for why I come back. To be surprised and enlightened. As two earlier commentors said - (you)"go with your gut" and (me)"ew".
Right, Americans have a hard time pissing in a trough. Except, that is, for any American who has been to a baseball stadium.Rats. I figured most people knew "al fresco" meant "outside." As in "not in a men's room." In the U.S., in the absence of a men's room, even guys select a portapotty when they have to whizz.I mean, I've watched baseball in many different parks, but none of them have an open-air pee-a-torium.
You don't fool me. You're just trying to put more smart blondes into the blog.
I feel like that guy when I shake hands of politicians.
"Gets up in the nostrils too, you don't want that.Ow, that's early morning stuff."
Pissbock! That's why I come here! The cultural exchange, that is. I have seen these urinal-troughs before; but not since I was a kid. BUT, even as a kid I never confused one for a sink. (But they were indoors so the smell was, um, yeah like Bourbon Street, 4am on Ash Wednesday. Been there, Done Who Dat!)
I could stand to hear the story of how you came across this video. What were you looking for?WV: browerf (Dutch for puking beer)
just boring drunk stuff. After nearly 60 years on the planet, the dumb things drunks do aren't too surprising any more. Or very interesting.
This is typical Dutch humor: "Har har- that guy broke his neck on a banana peel". Rise above, Ann.
Taste level? Do you read the comments of TitusIeatshit, Jeremy et al?
You don't believe that was real do you?
Yes FLS, I can see your logic. You've seen urinals in men's rooms, but if you saw one al fresco, you'd be flummoxed. Well, you're the dumbass, so I guess you'd know.
