I'd name the urinal after subby's mom.

Just give me a sharpie and your phone number subby, I'll name one after you.

Interesting way to increase that all-important first year revenue. Good luck, all of you who want to name the urinal "Subby's Mom"

Bathroom advertising works amazingly well... although its better to have the ad at eye level where they have no choice but to read it, vs having the ad somewhere it can actually be pissed on.

The projects on Kickstarter seem to be getting more and more ridiculous, but I guess as long as idiots are willing to give people free money so they can start a business it's going to continue.

I guess I should get in on the fad, I'm currently renovating my house. For every $25 donation I'll name a 2x6 after you. For $100 I'll insulate a wall section in your name and send you a picture of it, and if you donate at the $5000 level I'll let you pick out my beer fridge.

So...we have a chance to name a stall "Fark.com UFIA Center" ?

What if you could put a picture of someone and their name on the back of a urinal?  I'd bet a lot of people would pay to have someone they despise urinated on constantly.

Why is a urinal more expensive than a stall.

That's sexist!

They know people are more willing to piss on something, so likely all the naming rights will be revenge-based.

Imagine the price for naming the "Larry Craig Stall"?

At the same time, it was also announced that, with inspiration from the NFL, they would begin selling personal peeing licenses.  The license doesn't grant you the right to pee.  Rather, it grants you the right to pay to pee in the urinals.

That's just pissing away your money.

I might be tempted to spend $350 for the stall named "For a great time ladies, call garandman1a on " and with my phone number after it...

Cornfed cuties!

The UFIA stall.

$500 later the urinal is named: Obama

The problem with naming a urinal is that it requires peer review.

I work at a theater that does this.....for a certain $ donation, you can put your business name or whatever on a stall or urinal.  Since it's a community theater and wants to keep things "respectable" or something, the only thing prohibited outright is any variation on "for a good time, call" jokes.  Seems a bit off to me, having nameable shiatters and urinals, but not allowing a harmless joke, but you know, 'think of the children' or some such BS.

I don't mind the trend so much...with start-up costs for even modest businesses being what they are, you have to take whatever resources you can get.  If I had extra cash, I might chip in a couple hundred for a urinal so the neighborhood can have a nice tasting room, if I already liked the business.  Picking the joke I would put on the plaque would be the hard part.

In some areas, it's got to the point that nobody opens even small businesses except the already quite wealthy, which is a trend that bothers me a lot more than e-begging from small businesses. Between manufacturing costs and protectionist policies in cities, it's a multi-thousands of dollars investment to set up a freaking hot dog cart that might support one or two people, and it only gets worse when building rent, construction, or alcohol are involved.  If somebody can get some voluntary funding for a project, more power to them.

Admittedly though, I can see your point....it is a bit grating to see, say,  movie stars ask for money for their pet project that they can't be bothered to risk or spend their own money on, but I see this case a little differently.
