Germany's Shrine of the Micturition.



Al fresco micturition - it appears to be a ritual at Ulm Minster, in Ulm, Germany.  Turns out it may be eroding the foundation of the church ... there's a metaphor in that, I think.  Story here.

I learned a new word today too.

  1. Not bad in the moral sense, but TMI for polite company. Potty talk is not for gentlemen. And those sculptures are in bad taste. Yuck! I'm sure in today's world most people find them hilarious. But that is just more evidence of the degradation of art.

    2. Voiding on church property is disgusting and disrespectful. I remember when our parish was open 24/7 a few years back. It had to be closed since the folks who counted the donations kept finding urine and feces in the donation boxes. It seems the homeless were sleeping in the church and one desecrated the sanctuary with a dead cat.

      You can't win sadly, despite our Holy Father's call to help the homeless poor.

  3. Wow Terry, you learn something new everyday from your blog....and finally a serious topic I can comment on.. I prefer the word "Wildpinkler" which I learned from this and it seems to some things up.

    I have a friend who owned a building in Wrigleyville and the foundation was rotting, because of, yes, you guessed it. I could never go to that building as it made me want to throw urinal cakes on the ground...(people..i.e. men are pigs...)

    But really, a German town square should provide the proper facilities with all that Oktobefesting and wine festings etc. So much better then Face Painting and Bouncy Houses....
