What're you lookin' at?

Church groups are giving a boost to an already thriving commode in a posh New Zealand hotel. Seems they're offended by the toilet's life-size cutouts of local models peering into the urinals with shock and awe at the rotating, um, selection of users (see photo left). Josh Rubin gets off a nice pun: "Apparently the life sized images of girls peering in to the urinals are creating quite a buzz down under."

This seems more of an eye-roller than a campaign-launcher to me. As a local news story points out, there's no comparable pandering in the ladies room which may prompt cries of sexism. To which I'd respond: is there an analog to male penis-panic and if there is, do you really want to deal with it in a public toilet? (Cool Hunting)
