Talk about taking a pee!
A presumably latex-glove-wearing thief has stolen three soccer-themed urinal splash guards out of the Williamsburg pub’s men’s room during the past few months.
The urinal guards, which owners Conor Carolan and Chris Keller bought off a novelty urinal cake website, feature a pair of miniature goal posts in the middle of a green field.
“A few months ago, one disappeared,” said Carolan. “Since then, a few more have been taken.”
Banter Bar, on Havemeyer Street, is a European-style pub that opens early in the morning so customers can catch international soccer games live.
Last year, when the owners first bought the goal post splash guards, customers showered them with praises, among other liquids.
“They became the focal point of the bathroom,” said Carolan.
Carolan even believed patrons were so focused on the guards, the bathrooms remained cleaner than they normally would be.
“People stopped writing graffiti on the walls,” he said.
But then, a thief started aiming for the goal and Carolan can’t imagine why.
“Are they centerpieces on someone’s dinner table or what?” he said.
Carolan said that he and Keller are undeterred, and will continue to buy and install the posts to ensure patrons hit the spot.
The brazen urinal robber isn’t the first person to pilfer from a Brooklyn bathroom this year. Earlier this spring, someone stole a brass toilet seat from Lighthouse BK, resulting in one of the best headlines in newspaper history.Reach reporter Danielle Furfaro at dfurfaro@c
