Urine for it now

Hey, some people, let's call them sexists, might say that making a cake is a pretty female thing to do, but we here at kennypittock.com are all about breaking down stereotypes and promoting equality.

Here are one hundred urinal cakes, each one individually hand made from clay, baked in the kiln at 1200 degrees and then iced in glazing. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would.
One thing I realised from making these things is that a lot of women don't know what urinal cakes are. The simple answer to this is that they're basically just disinfectant chemical tablets that are put in the bottom of urinals to try and stop the urinal from smelling like a urinal.
Earlier this morning I put all 100 cakes into the urinal in the VCA boys toilets, our Grad Show is tonight and it seemed like a harmless enough way to literally take the piss out of it.
Here's my best bud Fat Dan breaking them in.
Between 6 and 8pm there's gonna be hundreds of people using the urinal so I imagine the cakes will take quite a bit of punishment, but if you're keen for a little bit of free art then feel free to head to the urinal and scoop out a piece or two. If you do get your hands on a cake I'll be more than happy to sign it for you.

Unfortunately if you're a woman you're not technically allowed into the boys toilets, but go in anyway and if anyone gives you grief tell them I said it was ok. You should probably get in early though, as the cakes are only going to get smellier as it gets into the wee hours of the night.
