Urinal game banned by killjoy Belgium police

Posted November 05, 2007 11:43 AM

Filed under: Misc. Gadgets, Gaming Remember that urinal-based racing game that was making the rounds this summer? You know, the one you drive with your pee, and which warns you against drunk driving if you're not controlling your car too well? Well the Belgium police didn't seem to find it too amusing, and have banned the "Place to Pee" version of the game installed at GamePower Expo in Gent, Belgium as an indecency offence. We're guessing they're just tired of missing out on all those exciting men's room tourneys.

I missed out on Latin at school - didn't make the grade in French & had to do German.

My littl'un is smart - she's going up to secondary next year & I'm going to force her to do Latin so she can translate for me.

BTW didn't they miss an 's' off the name of that place in Belgium?

Hi JohnDG.

The answer is no!!! There is no "S" in Gent. I know Belgium well, and I will not tolerate anybody who takes the p**s out of the inhabitants of Belgium. Spencer

My post was in no way anything to do with either the inhabitants or the country of Belgium. It was what is known as a play on words. Some people find it amusing. It is known as Humour.

Some might suggest this is an example of double-standards.
