New urinals complete with pee diagnostics encourage fun times in the bathroom
By BOHEMIST STAFF
It is not a totally original concept in the Czech Republic — many a-urinal in the smoke-filled pubs and non-stops of the country stuffed with less-than-impressive pee games. Kick a little plastic football repeatedly into a goal using your piss, or pee on exotic adverts … for who knows what reason.
But now you can do so in the name of kicking cancer, according to denik.cz. Thanks to Olympian and philanthropist Petr Koukal, special mobile toilets with the tagline, ‘Show How Tricky You Are’ are traveling around the country to help raise awareness for prostate cancer.
The point of the game? Pee as hard and fast as you can. Diagnostic tools in the urinals act as fun interactive games that let you earn point using the might of your midstream. Upon completion, the urinal then give you a free diagnostic using said speed and flow of the urine — two components in measuring the condition of the prostate.
“When Czech men start to worry about their health just like they do about their cars, we will win,” Koukal reportedly said. “I had never thought I could get sick, but when, at the age of 24, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, it was a shock for me. The next day I was going to be operated on. My whole life changed that day.”
