Flash Paper Bag of Urine

Heave ho!

Folks in Europe like to express themselves at sporting events by filling bags with their urine and hurling these bags at the opposing team. This presents several problems. One is that messy broken bags clutter the playing field. The other is that a partially filled bag may not break, enabling an athelete with a good throwing arm to pick it up and throw it back.

BUNGCO UK has solved these problems with the Flash Paper Bag of Urine, or FPBU. The FPBU is a tidy carton like bag, with a thin lining of paraffin for a measure of water resistance. A short fuse protrudes from the top. After being filled, the bag is twisted off, lit and hurled.

In midair, the bag disappears with a flash. This also serves to get the attention of onlookers and players. Now uncontained, the urine continues along the same trajectory as an expanding cloud. There is no remaining messy bag and no possibility of return.

As a promotional measure, BUNGCO is distributing FPBUs containing beer at chosen sporting events in the EU.

       Very nice. Remind me not to attend a sporting event in Europe.

       I heard some stories of those two types of bags getting mixed up.....

       I didn't believe bungston's claim about the pissbag throwing but it's there on the internet, so it must be true.

       Of course it is, every game I've been to in the UK has just been torrent of pissbags.

       Now this is a problem that needed solving.

       Glad I could help.

       Could it be adapted for the flaming bag of shit doorstep trick?
waugsqueke, Jan 25 2005
  

       You'd just end up with lump of unflaming shit. Unless, of course, someone came up with a way of making that flammable as well... (cue BUNGCO parafin dog treat commercial)
