Friday Footnote: Men's Room Humor
For background on this post, please refer to "Shaq In The Men's Room" entry for January 6, 2013.
The above social media posting by Shaquille O'Neal caused a frenzy two months ago. Intended as humor, the incident was blown completely out of proportion. Shaq said it was grounds for a fight: a row of empty urinals and another man bypasses the unused latrines in order to be at his side.
There is an unwritten rule about etiquette in the men's room. Unless in a public (although illegal) "cruising" space, a man doesn't approach a urinal beside another man unless it's the only one available. That protocol is ingrained in us men from the moment we're "potty" trained.
Proof of this custom is reinforced in the images offered below.
Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
