‘Can’t Pee’ Billboard Offends Some In Fair Lawn

FAIR LAWN, NJ (CBSNewYork) – You might take offense, then again you might not. The slang term for urination that rhymes with “tee” is on a yellow billboard along Broadway in Fair Lawn.

Some residents think it is inappropriate.

“It’s a little too raw,” said one on Friday.

The issue has been raised at the Broadway Special Improvement District.

The billboard simply asks, “Can’t Pee?” Then it directs people to icanturiniate.com, or the New Jersey Center for Prostate Cancer and Urology.

CBS Outdoor, which owns the billboard, has said it’s meant to get your attention and that the topic is actually quite serious.

The billboard will likely stay.

Are you offended? Sound off in the comments section below!

    There once was a sign in Jersey,
    Large, yellow and easy to see,
    I looked ’round to peek,
    While taking a leak,
    The billboard was asking “Can’t Pee?”

    If anyone truly finds this offensive they ought to crawl under a rock and die a slow death.

    Can’t Urinate might be a better choice of words but it sounds
    like a distress signal ,”Can’t Pee” gets to the point of
    the message and does not leave me in a void.

  10. Tom Davidson says:

    The four-letter words, the four-letter words
    That never say quite what you mean.
    We’d rather be known for out hypocrite ways
    Than as vulgar, impure and obscene.

    When nature is calling, plain speaking is out
    When the ladies, God bless ’em, are milling about
    You may pee-wee, make water or empty the glass
    You can powder your nose, even Johnny can pass
    Shake the dew off the lily, see a man about a dog
    Or, when everyone’s soused, it’s condensing the fog
    But please to remember, if you would know bliss
    That only in Shakespeare do characters …..

    HONESTLY, IS THIS JUST A JOKE? ARE THE RELIGIOUS NUTS PROMOTING THIS ONE TOO? HOW COULD AN INDIDUAL COME FROM THE MINDSET TO CARE? I’VE HEARD PEE PEE FROM MY FIRST MEMORIES. JUST WISH I DIDN’T HAVE THAT URGE. MY PARENTS STILL MAKE ME PEE IN A JAR.

    1. Mike says:

      You are an ignorant idiot.

  12. roneida says:

    With all the raw languaue on TV,music videos and recordings,and the movies, I can’t believe anyone would be such a wuss. Had they used the grown up, Pi**, I am sure a few puritanical language freaks would get all wet, bu this is ridiculous.

    People are starving to death out day and military men and women are being murdered. Who can care about this?

  13. MJ says:

    WITH THE STATE OF THIS COUNTRY AND THE WORLS … IF this IS WHAT GETS PEOPLE UPSET AND OFFENDED THEY REALLY NEED TO REXAMINE THEIR PRIORITIES

  14. Telling It Like It Is says:

    Don’t ya’ just love the “politically correct” army? When their doctors tell them they have prostate cancer — THEN they will think the message is appropriate. BY then it will be too late for a preventative dose of common sense……………

    People need to lighten up. It gets attention, which is what it’s meant to do. For people who have this problem, it may actually be beneficial to see the sign and go the website. In Italy, they have billboards with half naked (topless) women advertising food products and stuff and no one seems offended.

    1. david goldstein says:

      val, im so proud that you made it to the featured comment…..you truly deserve this honor. just so you know i am very very proud you.

    2. DCLaw-1 says:

      Advertising what in Italy? Milk? Melons? Whipped cream? Hopefully not cheese

  16. Remember when says:

    Do you remember when Cole Porter wrote”In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something schocking nowadays anything goes”. Well these are not th good-old-days and the latest “Let’s sue ’em”, advert is about failed vaginal meshes. B/O, then a no go but today, O/K. And, ah well, so it goes.

    1. I Remember When Too says:

      You almost got the words right, but not a big deal. I wonder, how many remember that B/O meant body odor and Arid was an early contender in that fight. Those were the days? Who knows.
