German inventor gushes over portable women's weebag

Guaranteed to discreetly take the piss

Security for virtualized datacentres

A German firm hitherto dedicated to taking the piss out of men has now turned its attention to women, with the urine-sucking Ladybag.

The Lady BagYup, what we have here is allegedly the "world's first pocket urinal for women", which will put an end to cross-legged queuing up at lavatories, "squirming on disgusting toilets" or indeed "having to relieve oneself into yoghurt cups during car journeys", as Spiegel Online nicely puts it.

Ladybag inventor Eva Tinter enthused to the paper: "It can be used in cars, or to avoid dirty toilets or at open-air festivals when you don't want to queue. You can just nip round the back of the toilet and use this. There's never been a product like this in this form."

Yup, we can quite believe that. The Ladybag works by slurping up urine with gel-forming absorbent polymer crystals which can cope with an impressive 700ml* of liquid. It comes with a handy handle plus "moist towelette" for post-micturation ablutions.

A basic pack of three Ladybags will set you back €8.65 plus shipping. Couples wishing to indugle in some serious piss-taking might like to consider the combined "Holiday pack" - five Ladybags and a quintet of Roadbags for €21.38, plus shipping. ®

*In fact, the bag itself can "hold a whole litre in an emergency", although Spiegel Online leaves it to readers' imaginations as to just what kind of emergency would require pushing the Ladybag to its design limits.
