Egg cups for your behind

I can't stand these bar stools.

very awkward for obese guests that would need one for each ass cheek.

These chairs are EVERYWHERE. Have you ever sat in one? First, you don't need to be obese by any stretch to have them be uncomfortable those sharp edges are not forgiving. Second, and not to be gross but, it was at an open air bar and a very humid August in NYC when I'd first sat in one. I literally stuck to it from sweat and was embarrassed to stand up fearing I'd leave a puddle in the "cup". Third, there is NO way to climb on and off of it gracefully unless you're model tall. I looked like an awkward monkey holding my guys shoulder while attempting to climb up and down it. Lastly, and most important, it's just damned ugly.

That's not a very nice picture to post on your birthday. It is the big day in your time by now, right? Happy Happy Happy! Have a great one, may all of your Togo dreams come true!

I agree wholeheartedly! I have always wondered why anyone would buy these things! They somehow are vaguely reminiscent of urinals.

TLady - That is everything I needed to know about these stools. I have never sat in one, and now I never shall.

KP - Well, thank you so much for that. I've got special plans I'll share later in a post.

Happy Birthday!!!

I hope no one decided to gift you with a pair of these hideous chairs. I really, really hate them, too.

A friend has these in fire-engine red and they are the MOST uncomfortable chairs i've ever sat on.
