Funnel helps women pee standing up

A physically challenging feat - women peeing while standing up - is now easily achieved thanks to a funnel-like device, its manufacturer claims.

Brisbane-based company WhizBiz said "The Whiz" fits snugly against the body to enable women to "take a stand" like their male counterparts and avoid smelly public toilets and long queues.

Okay.....but it's still not like you can just whip it out and I don't understand how it would mean avoiding lines or public restrooms. It's not like you can just go in the middle of the mall - or dispose of the contents in a nearby trash can.

Mabel, it depends how stealthy you are, and as of now, when not many "Whizzes" have been sold, there wouldn't be anyone even wondering why you are leaning up against that large potted plant in the middle of the mall. This may start a new trend---everywhere we go, we'll be smelling urine. eewww.

Whizbiz is said to also be manufacturing a model for the males; a long flexible drain tube, that automatically retracts, and it's guaranteed not to leak, or drip. So now, men won't have to miss any of the ballgame, if they are at the ballpark.

Whizbiz said these devices were prompted by the devices designed for the astronauts.

They thought about naming them Heavenly Relief, and Blessed Relief.

This all assumes that the women involved are

1) wearing skirts
2)not wearing pantyhose
3) not wearing panties

There have been various attempts at creating "female urinals" over the years, but they have all appeared to have been designed by men.

LOL...it might help keep your pants dry if you had to go in the woods, but where else would you really use this thing?

You would just have to look around and see who has that sheepish grin on their face.

You set the two rocks on the ground a little bit apart so you can sit your buns on them. It keeps your behind off the ground so you can pee.
Or we would sit on the edge of the door jamb in the car, just make sure you are sitting far enough forward so you pee outside of the car.

With the poo, I ... I don't wanna even go there. T hat is just gross

So with this funnel thing, are we going to need to wear a cup.
It's tough enough wearing two cups up top....

Similar things have been used by hikers for years. Keeps the hiney away from the ground and all those creepy crawlies that might...well, you get the idea.
