    At least there are urinals... I had a regular gig at a place that had an old bath tub full of ice for the fellas to piss in.

    It's been a long time since I saw ice in the piss trough or urinals. I think the urinal mint made the use of ice obsolete.

  13. Yes, it is high class. In the real dumps, they use the word "puke."

  14. I used to play in a VFW post that had these little red "targets" in the urinals that said "Hanoi Jane's Urinal Stickers". I always thought those were funny.

    Some places have little flies printed in the urinals. Something to aim at, I suppose.

    Yeah I was looking to get our band logo printed on a urinal cake...guaranteed exposure.
  17. I've seen many urinals with a band sticker attached to the porcelain. That's dedication--wiping down a spot in the urinal so you can put your band's logo sticker in there and make it stick.

    Played there New Year's Eve! No lie! Or, at least this VFW had the same targets (Columbia, SC).
  19. Where my band used to rehearse, there was a printed sign above the toilet - "STOP PISSING ON THE FLOOR!" lol...
