UroClub: It’s time once again to take a look at this Bad Idea Product (pics/video)
This product has been around for some time, but for the uninitiated, allow me to introduce you to the UroClub: the worst idea for something with “uro” in the name since Euro Disney.
With golf season for many hackers living in wintery climes fast approaching, big ups to The Dose of Reality for bringing back into the public eye this ill-conceived-in-so-many-ways product. Apparently, some urologist invented it for guys who don’t find the conditions of the port-a-john conducive to urinating or find the idea of urinating next to a tree to be a little too au natural for them.
Via the Official Website of UroClub:
This may sound like a joke, but it’s not. I am a Board Certified Urologist, practicing in Florida, a place where Golf is played year round. Every day I hear these same complaints from my patients because they suffer from urinary frequency (a condition that can begin in men, as early as their mid 30’s). Even if you don’t have this problem, let’s face it, there are not too many bathrooms on the golf course.
These are the very patients that inspired me to create the UroClub™. A camouflaged portable urinal, designed to be discrete, sanitary and create an air of privacy! It looks like an ordinary golf club and comes equipped with a unique removable golf towel clipped to the shaft that functions as a privacy shield!
Imagine, giving the appearance of taking a practice swing, while both privately and confidentially, you are able to relieve yourself without any embarrassment! This can be accomplished easily while standing by the golf cart, as well. Have the confidence to drink whatever you wish during your game and not worry if you’ll make it to the clubhouse in time!
And only $19.95! (while supplies last)
You would no doubt draw more attention to yourself using this product then sneaking off the fairway and taking a whiz in a bush or by a tree.
In case the concept of urinating into a hollow club is too confusing for the layperson, the site has detailed instructions on how to use the contraption:
Oh, so you take the cap off first? Now you tell me!
And if you still remain skeptical about the absolute need to have a UroClub in your golf bag, here’s the unintentionally hilarious infomercial:
