The stranget picture I have ever seen...

I don't even know where to begin - this is so strange. I searched for "Twin Cities Marathon" on Flickr, just to see how many images were out there. Turns out there's over 800. I clicked on a few, then stumbled across the one below. Click it to view a larger version.



I see 2 things wrong in that photo. First, the woman in the foreground appears to be running with an iPod mini, which is a (minor) violation of USATF rules. The second, and more worrisome, thing is that the guy to the left has the words "Women! Pee standing up." scrawled across his torso in Sharpie® marker.

What the hell is going on!?!? Does he have a joke written on his back and the punchline on front? Is he really so concerned with how women pee that he had to take his message to the masses? Is he just completely, utterly insane?

I mean, you can't make that up. If you asked me to Photoshop a funny message on a picture of a runner, I could not have come up with "Women! Pee standing up" in a million years. I'm gonna have nightmares about that photo, I just know it.

Last year I ran the TCM and had to stop at about mile 7 to pee. As I was just about finished, someone started pounding on the door. When I opened the door, I guy was there, literally in my face, saying something like "hurry up hurry up." What if the guy in the pic is campaigning for the females in the race to stand up for pee-breaks, just to keep things moving along?

Not saying his campaign is legitimate, just pointing out the possibility.

I am literally laughing out loud over this picture. I have no idea what he expects by writing this on his chest, but...

Shouldn't it read "Women, pee standing up!"? His punctuation is all screwed up.
