An indelicate interlude

"the palace of wisdom is reached by the road of excess"

Never a truer word written. I've been wandering around the Netherlands and the enlightened folk who live there have embraced "le pissoir". Now we men can pee outdoors and we quite enjoy it. Sloshing happily away from the house of Bols (more on that later) I became aware of a pressing need. Fortunately the good folk of Amsterdam have provided a number of convenient metal structures for just this very emergancy.

I wish all city fathers were this enlightened as the sad fact is after excess (quite a small amount in some cases) we of the male gender are happy dispence with decorum. The pissoir is an elegant solution which covers a man's need and yet prevents random befoulings.
