  4. 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.......
