Bad taste is still taste; and does it really matter what taste we have as long as it's efficient? TASTES HAVE FEELINGS TOO YOU KNOW

Epic. Thank you!

Men are dumb. Women are crazy.

Crass generalizations FTW.

As always, the last panel sums everything up perfectly.

My experience with my guy friends: "First there'd be yelling, then there'd be laughing." is spot on.

Are you saying that they would have to crap in a trough, too?

At least there was a feed trough. THAT could get awkward.

Note from Scott: There were some beat-up old toilet stalls, but the centerpiece of the room was the two troughs.

Heh. As always, a brilliant and amusing insight.

All generalizations are false.

Scott!!! NOOOOO!!!

You are NOT supposed to sum up men so well that we can be so easily understood! *sigh*

Wrigley has a similar setup.

last pane: universal truth revealed

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterpep

"I get it"

"You didn't laugh"

"That's how you know I got it"

Priceless - I laughed so much my tummy still hurts.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaddy

The details are unimportant!

The old Tiger Stadium (Detroit) had the troughs, too. Even as a boy, I worried about the aim of the more-inebriated fans.

Panel 4 brought to you by Missy lol!

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

The last panel needs to made into a T-shirt!!!!

Some men are stupid and unsophisticated, but indeed not all. The whole "I am a man, I am useless, therefore all men are useless" shtick is wearing thin, thank you. (As well as being a false syllogism.)

Phall-halla!! OMG I roared!

Believe it or not, Europe (at least Holland) still manages to top us in manly efficiency (at the price of dignity). I went to a Dutch version of October fest, and along the base of a wall OUTSIDE and next to the line to enter the beer tent was a trough for urinating. You didn't even have to leave the queue to relieve yourself. Bloody brilliant!

Also, a Dutch friend told me that they were having a real problem with the lower walls and foundations of the many old churches they have there crumbling, as they were a favorite location for bar-hoppers to relieve themselves in transit. The government responded by putting up plastic guards around the bases of these churches...but eventually had to take them down because of too many complaints about the splashback. Now THAT is some truly crass manliness for ya...calling up the government to complain that the pee guards they installed to protect that 600 year-old church are getting your shoes wet...

I also remember those Kingdome restrooms - you forgot to mention they frequently were crowded so you had to wait for the beer to really be working because you couldn't risk the chance of a "freeze up" with someone looking over your shoulder waiting for a spot.... not cool.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJaymz

Ah the old double trough set up. Truly a work of genius. Even if a trough was misused, or even if it wasn't, you still never actually touch either trough. At least, most of us don't.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

Also worth noting for manliness is that its death set a world record, and that it took two new structures to replace.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

i didn't get it
what kingdom building?

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterD

Love panel 4.

And also, Phalhalla. Even though I should probably not admit that, but it still made me lol...

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLerkistan

you often don't take your own advice in a strip, but this time you didn't take the narrative advice from another one that said not to explain a joke.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersigurdgram

I never laugh out loud at stuff I read, until today. Very funny.

October 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHerk

I meant to post "At least there WASN'T a feed trough."

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterByron Black

As soon as I saw "King Dome" i knew it was going to involve "The Trough". All conversations about the King Dome eventually lead there.

"Men in general will trade dignity for efficiency."

Really? In my experience, men in general seem to have neither dignity or(nor?) efficiency.

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy

Awesome job, as always!

But shouldn't that be manlily in Panel 1? Or do you not want to say that because it sounds like man-lily?

I will try to use Phal-halla in conversation this week. :D

Ahh, the memories of the Kingdom.

Oddly, I worked as a grip for ESPN the last Seahawks game in the dome, the last Mariners game in the dome and then worked for KOMO when they imploded the dome.

Women are inefficient too: we failed to trap the men who designed the women's room in the building when it was blown up.

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergobbler

Wow! A female poster who calls herself "gobbler" ?! Interesting....
