A Fly In The... Urinal

Over the last few years I've been through quite a few German airports; Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Munich and Frankfurt. They are all very different, but they seem to all have one thing in common -- the toilet supplier.

All the urinals have a weird fly logo on them, and strangely they aren't always in the same place or position. I've thought that it was odd many times before, but coming back from Munich was the first time I found myself alone in the toilet long enough to take a photo.

I suspect it's not so much a manufacturer logo as a little something for guys to aim at. In fact it looks like they're stickers / labels from here.

I'm impressed as they didn't look like sticky labels, but then again I wasn't going to put my hands in and try and peel them off!

Can't really think of a comment but had to let you know I'd enjoyed your posting. No flies on me.

Well I've stood over a lot of German toilets but don't ever recall seeing a fly. Very odd!
