A Tree That Turns Any Golf Match Into A Pissing Contest

A Tree That Turns Any Golf Match Into A Pissing Contest

For thousands of years, trees have provided cover for men in times of, well, need. In keeping with this age-old tradition, the Pissing Tree on Austin’s Lions Municipal Golf Course continues to serve the needs of golfers too deeply involved in their game for pause. With its thick, low hanging branches, Quercus Virginia, more commonly known as the Live Oak, more than provides the modesty required.

Thanks to our dire water shortages due to the unending drought, perhaps we need to reconsider where we relieve ourselves. Each time we flush a traditional toilet, we lose 5-7 gallons of irreplaceable water from our reservoirs. Can the beloved Pissing Tree help us re-think how we save this precious resource, before we piss it all away?
