This is a real article from the Canadian Press, and it is amazing. The article feels like something out of The Onion, but I assure you it is not. It is, however, a full report on male Winnipeg Jets fans who are fed up with the state of the bathrooms at the MTS Centre. It's too dang modern, they say.â†µ
Which is why these fans are asking the Jets to bring back the trough. The lines for the bathroom are too long and the urination experience isn't "a joy" anymore. Seriously. There's even a petition, and the comments are getting out of control.
One petitioner fondly remembers the trough as a "drive-through bathroom" with no lineup. Another says the trough "made it a joy to go pee."â†µ
"The system now is totally flawed and I almost pee my pants just waiting in line," he wrote.â†µ
"Everyone talks about the trough and how they miss it," wrote another.â†µ
People are pining for a trough! It sounds like we're one step away from these trough fans sharing their favorite memories and bathroom experience at MTS Center. I, for one, fully support the pro-trough movement.â†µ
