The Germans – I don't mean all of them, of course – have been propagating the idea that men ought to sit (sitzen) to urinate (pinkeln). Combine this with the development of a tubelike device which enables ladies to pinkle while standing and ask yourself where all this is leading. Is there a hidden agenda to masculinise women and feminise men? I don't like this at all. In fact it makes my blood boil. It's enough to make me tear my frock. OK, I guess it's just my time of the month. I will get over it, standing up or sitting down.
