Piscataway, NJ, (FP) - Amerikan Standard, owned by the Amerikas Bath and Kitchen Group, which encompasses the United States, Canada and Mexico, is set to release new "Frontal Buttock Friendly" Urinals in late 2008.
A move, which various watch groups are following extremely close, is an effort to appease the more rotund population that has reported accuracy problems when using public bathrooms.
A spokesman for the New Jersey based company said that they have been doing substantial research on the growing percentage of the population that has "puddle problem" caused by the need to stand at a distance from the urinals due to frontal buttocks. "We feel that our current urinals do not offer the right fit for the more obese portion of our population," the spokesman reported.
Michael Moore has said to consider doing a documentary regarding the subject, but was not immediately available for comment.
