I have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random as my homepage
Wikipedia quote "Other informal terms include "urinal mint", "urinal cake," "urinal puck" or "trough lolly (british)."
>Where do people call them that?
Never heard that in nearly 50 odd years, mostly in Britain.
Australian origin, I'd guess; a lolly to Brits is an ice cream on a stick, but to the Aussies a lolly is what we'd call a sweet. A Google for the term finds a lot of Australian references.
Maybe some American confusion about British & Australian accents? Or just taking the p1ss?
"In Bret Easton Ellis's novel American Psycho, Patrick Bateman coats a urinal cake in chocolate and presents it to his girlfriend in a Godiva box."
Nice; I have a cunning plan.......
