The Travel John is a disposable urinal in a bag, and it’s finding new popularity among those who don’t want to use public restrooms.

It’s a real head scratcher, but I wasn’t about to let a little tinkle trouble stand between me and the open road. I’m a man of action, a man of ideas, and, apparently, I’m also now a man who urinates in plastic bags.
