Sign of the Times

One of the disadvantages of writing a text-only column is the inability to realize the potential of “a picture is worth a thousand words”. But then, that’s what web sites are for! It can make a cute story a hysterical story. From the 30 April 2000 issue of This is True:

Thus, they say, from now on men must sit down while urinating. No way, say residents. “I’m not going to let anybody tell me how I take care of business,” says one. “I’m going to carry on standing.” (Reuters) …The headline: “Men Say They Won’t Stand for Sitting Down”.

And here’s the lovely visual to go with the story:
