Go with the flow?

Not sure if this is just a work of art or a wee bit degrading to women. The Kisses! Urinal is created by Meike van Schijndel, a Dutch designer of a design production firm called Bathroom Mania! in the Netherlands. Engineered to European standards, the company claims "this is one target men will never miss!"

However, the wide-open red lips design pissed off some people. A McDonald's outlet in the Netherlands agreed to remove the designer urinals after a shocked American customer complained to its head office in the United States.
