Don't Forget Your Fud

Oh my God.

I got an email today from one of my readers who thought I should know about a new product, "GoGirl".
Seriously?

The website says it's "a Female Urination Device, or FUD."

The tagline is "Don't Take Life Sitting Down."

I.........have so many questions. Not the least of which is - Why is the canister the shape of a Pillsbury biscuit can.

So I'm guessing the FUD's target demographic is the "outdoorsy" girl? Or maybe the "huge outdoor frat party" girl?

Bethany: Brittany! I have to pee - do you have a Fud?
Brittany: Crap! I forgot my Fud! Jessica! Do you have a Fud?
Jessica: Nicole has my Fud.

And so on.

Anyway - it is available for purchase online...and before you check out, don't forget your GoGirl lip balm. I am so not kidding.

Ew.

I can't help myself...but um...which lips are the lip balm intended for? Is it to be applied BEFORE or AFTER using your FUD?

Saw this product on Tv a while back. I was in disbelief that I didn't come up with it myself. It would have come in handy in college and on road trips. Outside the frat house I would say to my girlfriends, "if only we could pee standing up..." In line at the porto-potty at the fair with my hubby, "if only I could stand up in there..." How do you clean FUD if you have no supplies? After you use it, do you put it in a baggie? Is it dishwasher safe? Does it have an antibacterial coating? Did you order one yet? Take care.

You forgot the part about how it is re-usable OR disposable; depending on how likely you are to want to save something you have just urinated through.

Nic said...

Ew! You don't wanna get those mixed up!

LOL...Is that a funnel? It comes with a funnel? How cool is that..I gotta have one.

Tracy said...

Probably something you need to use after vaginal rejuvination! LOL http://tinyurl.com/mqame3

what will they think of next?

Jen said...

I am with Marybeth Poppins, which lips is the balm for?

M said...

Oh, I so saw this on another blog. I think the chick product tested it or something.

The words What The F*** have never been so appropriate.

Heather, Queen of Shake Shake said...

I'm crazy. I think those would be handy while camping.

Ms. Attitude said...

I can't believe someone would invent something like this. Wow.

Former Fat Chick said...

having lived and traveled in MANY 3rd world countries...you have no idea what is considered a BATHROOM...um, I would have LOVED a FUD!

Sarah said...

shut UP!

speedymac77 said...

They have had the "Lady J" for a looooong time now which is like this design. Being an outdoorsy type, I enjoy the idea of peeing when it's -20 outside without disrobing.

...yes, it really does get *that* cold!

Michelle said...

Oh my goodness! I have never seen anything like this but I think I prefer the squatting in the woods method, thanks!

Candice said...

Beats the hell out of that time I tried to aim for that Coke bottle.

Where the hell was the FUD then, huh? HUH??

Swirl Girl said...

Oh great - now I have to feel guilty about not being one of 'those moms' who , between milling her own wheat and quilting and home schooling, actually has a few minutes to sit down and pee??

I must suck...

Lynette said...

Heh. I once peed in a cup at a concert while still in my chair because I was completely unwilling to get back in the bathroom line. Could have used a FUD then.

(Also: Don't play with your FUD. ahahaha)

BacktoBarnwell said...

WTF? Is this post happening right now?

HappyHourSue said...

B2B: seriously, Dude - If you don't say something coherent soon I'm staging an intervention.

Also: Love the new avatar.

Loveable Loser said...

911..I can't breath.

The Post..then comments..I FUD myself!

Put that in you CC locker and tell them it is just encase a locker opens up in the Men's

Paige said...

This concerns me as I follow a GoGirls on Twitter--does this mean I know the pee queens?

No self respecting woman gets to the age of majority without knowing how to drop the drawers outdorrs in an emergency

I am a little freaked out

Jennifer said...

Just...ew!

Miss Yvonne said...

This would have come in handy when I was in high school. Ever tried to pee in the dark on the side of a gravel road when you're wasted? Take my word for it, not easy.

Cara Starr said...

save your money and instead read this handy dandy "ladies-how-to-pee-standing-up-without-a-device" tutorial! http://otoh.org/mirror/restrooms.org/standing.html

Cathie said...

I have no words, you have rendered me speechless.

McMommy said...

I can't even say the word "FUD". It grosses me out beyond belief.

Kind of like the word "nub". Ewwwww

Christina said...

LOL.... I had the same feelings about it. I did a post a few months ago when I saw it on one of the morning shows. Most ridiculous thing I ever saw.

Kurt said...

All the good things are already invented. Man!

Keyona said...

So...which way does is go? LOL!!

sstahlberg said...

You know, if they were disposable, and not re-usable (ewww) I would actually think it was a good idea. Like if you could just toss it in the woods after you used it. Could have come in handy when I was like 16 and wasted in the middle of a forest at a "Bush Party". I'm pretty sure I've tinkled on my jeans or leg a few times.

Mouthy Housewife said...

ugh and wtf? those are my two first reactions. I'm guessing not what the company is hoping for in a potential consumer.

jessica - tmh

Vanessa said...

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

TJ said...

But I blew my budget on my new genital chair

Dugout Daisy said...

I'm with Marybeth, which lips?...
oh and I just ordered one online.

;)

Elisa said...

seriously, what the FUD?

grace said...

so in all honesty, my younger sister has been trying to fashion this object for her own personal use. She'll be thrilled to know it actually exists.

creative-type dad said...

Now you can write your name in the snow!

And you don't need to use the lip balm for that either.

marymac said...

who's in the mood for fudnnel cakes?!

ewwwwwwwww but hey, it beats Depends.

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I have seen this and I also had so many questions...one of which is where do you store this little doozy and what about the cleaning process? This seems highly unsanitary to me but I guess my lip balm will remind me to click on the CONTACT US portion of the web site!!!

Life, Love And Lola said...

Seriously????

* TONYA * said...

Seriously, almost peed my pants. Wow. What will they come up with next. I could have seriously used this on vacation while holding Miss M over the top of the most disgusting port-a-potty you've ever seen in your entire life. We both ended up a pee soaked mess ha.

Kim said...

Hell yeah. Why should men get to have all the fun? I just caught my husband peeing in the corner of the dog run last week. I figure I must be missing out on something amazing with this peeing standing up thing. Stocking stuffers, anyone?

Leslie said...

I may or may not have been one of the girls that could have used this back in her 20's! LOL! Do you think it fits in one of those tiny going-out purses?

Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

NO!!! They did NOT make a cross-promotion tying the FUD to LIPS!!!! Now I'm going to have "labia lips" stuck in my head!!! NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

TheDakers said...

OK, so after I got over the massive "Ewwe" moment, I got to thinking. From the standpoint of a former frat-party-frequenter (class of '05 :)... and my name is Jessica, so I guess I was bimbo number three in your scenario, it's ok, it was pretty funny! Thought was, when those girls go out to those parties, they never ever take purses big enough to fit that humassive contraption in, so even if it wasn't disgusting, and I were maybe drunk enough to find it useful, where the hell would I have put it??..seriously?!! ps. I'm a more mature, grown woman, mom now, just so I'm not lumped in with that group in your eyes. Hilarious post though. Wonder if they actually sold any of those. And again, Ew.
