The Hunting of the Snark


A garden centre takes the theme a bit too far

Recently, my wife and I visited Dobbie’s Garden World in Livingston. I think that branch was opened very recently. And you could tell it was brand-new! The floor was clean, the layout was modern, and the gents’ had something I’d never seen before in my life:

A row of urinals, several of which are shaped and coloured like flowers

So glad there was nobody else there

I would say they must be ‘flower pots’.

  1. I find it amusing that this is what takes you out of a blogging hiatus of nearly a year… 🙂

    • Thanks! 🙂 I’m not sure what’s tackier: their installation, or my decision to snap a photo and post it on the internet.

      • Haha! I am sure they meant well, right? And I’m sure stranger things have been posted… so I guess both of you avoid the “tackiest thing on earth” demerit for today!
