Unitasker Wednesday: UroClub

I’m not a golfer, but I would imagine that if nature called while you’re out playing a round you would either hold it until you found a proper facility or you would simply head into a wooded area to take care of the issue. I’m not sure if the UroClub is a joke, but it is definitely a ridiculous alternative to using the woods.

The UroClub includes a towel that acts a shield for privacy. So, while you are relieving yourself you can be rest assured that no one will be the wiser. Now, you can enjoy the golf experience without having to use pesky things like public restrooms. Simply unscrew the top of the club, drape your towel, and you are good to go. You can then set the filled-up club back into your bag and enjoy the rest of your game. Just make sure you screw that cap on tight! And ladies, I’m sorry to report, but this is not equipped for unisex use. As far as we can tell, it’s not actually made to hit golf balls, either.

Thanks to reader Stephanie for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

**Each week, the Unitasker Wednesday column humorously pokes fun at the unnecessary, single-use items that manage to find their way into our homes.

    This just can’t be real. And if it is, do please lie to me.

    Almost every week a commenter defends the unitasker at hand.

    I really hope this week is an exception!

    I’ve been golfing plenty. I’ve never once though “You know what I need? A hollow golf club I can relieve myself in.” Worst. Idea. Ever.

    My grandfather is 87 loves to golf and uses one of these…just kidding. Thought I’d kick of our usual Unitasker Wed schtick with one of those comments that seem inevitable.

    When I was a kid my dad and I were fishing with some old guy we met. Out of the bottom of his row boat, I picked up what looked like a watering can with no shower head looking dealie on the end, and said, “What’s this for?” My dad gave me a look and indicated to put it down and explained later that it was for the same thing as WhizClub. Yuk.

    Now if someone can find DefiClub, I’ll be really impressed. It would be a little unweildy though with the TP dispenser and hand sanitizer hanging off the side of the club. And the handle might be a little big to.

    This brings new meaning to the song “In Da Club”.

    …. actually, I take that back. It’s meant to double as a portable chair. While the other guy takes his putt maybe.

    What I don’t get is why it’s not open on the bottom. Why hang on to your pee? Open both ends and just pee into the grass. It’s like a reverse drinking straw!

    Just to be fair to women, here is a product you need to see to believe.

    I am laughing so hard after seeing the “brown Corporation” and the magic-cone, that I am about to wet my pants.

    As to why it’s not open ended, I would imagine that golf courses would not take kindly to pee spots on their carefully tended greens….if dog pee makes the grass turn a funny color, well…

    I am never telling my golf-happy father in law about this product, for fear that he might think it’s a nifty idea. I will simply live in the happy belief that he would never, ever use one of these things.

    This is just wrong!

    Actually, can it be doubled as an actual club? Not really a unitasker then :P. Perhaps the liquid provide some extra swinging force to help with your swing? Let’s just hope if you do use it as a club afterwards, that it’s really really well sealed on the bottom!

    Several of the travel catalogs sell little cone shaped gizmos that allegedly allow women to pee standing up. I guess that would be a better idea than what a lot of women seem to do–hover over the bowl and hope they hit the target. 🙂

    The desire to make “wood” jokes is almost overwhelming…

    Boy Freud would have loved magic cone for the support it provides for one of his more dubious theories. Very nice animation.

    @steve:
    I had to actually put a sh** box in my shopping cart and click purchase just to confirm that the site is not a hoax. I wonder if you go through with the last step if it tells you “Surprise sh** box isn’t a real product.” I’m not willing to test it out to find out. Anyone willing to gamble $30 on owning your very own sh** box?

    That was great.

    No need for a UroClub if you’ve got the Stadium Pal, made famous by essayist David Sedaris. Here’s a video of Sedaris reading his piece about the device on Letterman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBdymtyXt8Y

    You have got to be kidding me…

    My estimation of humanity just dropped 10 points.

    This might be the only golf club I definitely know how to use!

    Um, just make sure you grab the right club. (no pun intended)

    Truly awful! Going one step further, I know doctors (both genders) who catheterise themselves to avoid loo breaks at stadium matches…even less clutter than this object, as afterwards they just dispose of the, er, equipment.
