Piss Proud

On the other side of the pond
They take the piss. 

I have a hard time wrapping
My matter-of-fact American mind
Around this pastime.

It's backwards in every logical way. 
Why the hell would someone want piss?
What do they do with it after they've taken it?

I heard it's based on a morning erection,
Brought on by a full bladder.

Appears this is the only reason
Anyone might want to be
On the receiving end.

Humorous retro-esque read by R.A.D. ...that SNIFF (!) 


  1. Nice! That's funny. I lived in Scotland for two years and they were notorious for "taking the piss". It was like a national pastime. Let's see if we can "wind him up" was what everybody did in the pub every night. Maybe that's why we're so uptight in America. In Britiain, if the pissee actually got angry, he lost. To be unflappable was a high honor. Here we have a chronic case of righteous indignation. :-\

  2. Ha ha..yes ...unless its of the real 'morning glory' of course;)

  15. The actual term "piss proud" derives from the morning collection of, or "taking the piss", for the dying industry...
    in its overnight, concentrated form it was the best fixer of certain dyes....
    during the day, it gets weaker....
    makes you think about all these "naturally dyed" clothes you can buy nowadays...
    just whose pee are you wearing?
