KawasakiTwo months ago I spoke at a marketing conference in Istanbul, Turkey. I stayed at the Conrad hotel. It has men’s bathroom with two urinals that provide a stunning view of the Bosphorus.

Naturally, I took a picture of these urinals and their view. Unnaturally, I showed the picture in my speech and mentioned that these urinals have the best view of any urinals in the world. A newspaper picked up this description and asked me for a copy of the picture.

Later I found out that the newspaper ran this story. The headline, I’ve been told, says, “Kawasaki: I peed against the view of Bosphorus and it was great.”

No additional speaking gigs in Istanbul have been forthcoming.
