Have a Seat

Well sometimes the extent some governments will go to save us from ourselves just baffles the mind

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,

Yep they want to yank out all the urinals, replace them with stalls, and make you sit down to pea. Using the force of law….

For men who might refuse to comply, party representatives suggested a separate set of toilets clearly labeled for stand-up urination only

Um that’s a urinal, It doesn’t need to be labeled.

Why is this worthy of a new government mandate, who would even think this necessary?

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

Oh yea, I should have guessed. On the plus side it is for our own good…

Party speakers cited medical research they said shows men empty their bladders more efficiently while seated. Improved bladder evacuation reduces the risk for prostate problems,

I can’t believe that any government would what to get that involved in the lives of it’s people,

Viggo Hansen, a substitute council member who authored the motion, told Sveriges Television that that the move does not represent an attempt to meddle in the bathroom habits of citizens.

Oh well if you say so…

"That's not what we're doing. We want to give men the option of going into a clean toilet,"

Really, have you ever gone to a public restroom where men don’t have a urinal to use, it’s not pretty.

2 wolves and a sheep, expanded.

The old saying goes like this:


Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner

I figure it needed a little expansion, just for fun

Dictatorship is 1 wolf deciding which sheep to have for dinner

Communism is 10 wolves telling 1000 sheep being dinner is good for them

Socialism is 10 wolves convincing 1000 sheep that being dinner is good for them

A Representative Republic is the sheep voting on whether to build a fence or hire more sheep dogs.

Update: Added the line about communism, it was meant to be there all along.
