A war has broken out over urinals in a German museum. Women's rights activists are furious over the mouth-shaped men's toilets at the Rolling Stones museum in a northern town, Der Spiegel reports. "Why does it have to be a woman's mouth?" asked one, saying she would have accepted the urinals had they looked more like the Stones' tongue logo—but the toilets don't have tongues. The museum's founder defends his restroom: "That's not a man's mouth or a woman's mouth, that's art. They were damned expensive and they're staying where they are and that's final."
