Macklemore Posts Little Song About Basic Male Bathroom Etiquette

On Instagram, Macklemore writes:

ITS TIME THAT US MEN STARTED RESPECTING TO THE BASIN THAT OUR QUEENS SIT ON! LETS RAISE THE NEXT GENERATION TO HAVE BETTER AIM SO WOMEN DONT HAVE TO PEE & POOP ON OUR PEE!...and IM NOT TRYING TO POOP ON YOUR PEE EITHER! BASICALLY, TO ALL THE FRAT GUYS AND SHITTY DADS, QUIT FUCKING UP THE DEUCE SESH FOR THE REST OF US! BUMP THIS CUT IN ALL AIRPORT BATHROOMS AND FOOTBALL GAMES! FUCK A DRUNK DAD PISSING ON THE GROUND, AND A FRAT BRO TOO HAMMERED TO HANDLE HIS DANGLER! MAN UP AND LEARN DONG CONTROL!...IM OUT!!!

And here is the song:

I very much disagree with the all caps and the song's quality is highly questionable, but I agree with the intent behind Macklemore's message here. Clean up after yourselves, men.

… & BTW … ladies: if you're going to "hover" while peeing in a unisex public bathroom or portapotty, AT LEAST RAISE THE SEAT if you can't be bothered to clean up after yourselves.

@1 hovering is the dumbest fucking thing ever. Jesus fucking Christ put your immaculate ass on the seat like a grown up. Don't force others to hover or wipe the seat because of your paranoia.

Speaking as someone who has had to clean far too many public restrooms, please do not wipe your solid excrement on the walls. I don't know why I have to say this, but I do.

This guys career is sliding towards the toilet faster than even I predicted.

@2, totally agree. I'm looking forward to the 'Please Say Excuse Me' single. Pawnshop struck a great balance, but this is a little childish.

Yes, because it's only FRAT GUYS AND SHITTY DADS who do this. Certainly not drunks at hipster clubs or at concerts by crappy white hip-hop artists.

I think there's a whole album of material in the vicinity, the Brown Album. A piece about turd burglars, one about noisy shitters, another about those who exit the restroom without washing their hands...

I lived in a coed house in college, and all the areas of the house were on a chore list/cleaning rotation, including the guys bathroom and the girls bathroom. It took two years, but the women finally got the bathrooms taken out of the general rotation and put in a rotation of their own because cleaning the men's bathroom every week was totally disgusting. There was pee everywhere. All over the toilet, next to the toilet, on the wall...and we won't even talk about the pubic hair. Either they were all balding down south, or they were cutting it off just to gross us out.

The guys weren't complaining, either. They didn't like having to empty the trash more than once a week when the majority of the women had their periods.

@11, when I had to clean restrooms shared between a coffeehouse and a bar, the women's was always far, far worse. Lakes of piss, toilets clogged with candy wrappers and broken glass, smashed mirrors and toilets and sinks, and yes, shit on the walls. Plus for some reason the underage punk rockers liked to congregate in the ladies' and get drunk, sitting right on that lake of piss, ten or twenty of them at a time.

@12,

I only really have a point of comparison between different types of ladies rooms, but women's restrooms in bars and nightclubs are what you say and worse, especially any establishment where people get falling down drunk. My heart goes out to people who work in Fremont bars and nightclubs on Friday and Saturday nights.

keshmeshi, you should have added the words "for minimum wage" to the very end of @13. They do what they do for minimum wage.

"if you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seat-ie!"

Is this guy's 5 minutes up yet? Biggest dork on the planet. Please, please, someone drop him in Harlem for a few minutes and see what happens. I will pay to watch.

@13 - I'm sure some bar employees have to deal with the toxic stuff once in a while, but those poor morning contractors.*Shiver.*

I'm always a little baffled when I hear people ripping away at the seat cover dispensers in the stall. 'The fuck are you seriously protecting yourself from? MRSA? Your butt is not picking up diseases from that toilet seat, but OH GOD ARE YOU ON YOUR PHONE IN THERE?!

@17 - What would happen? Maybe a nice lunch at Red Rooster? People might be all "hey, is that Macklemore?"
