A five-star hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand, has strategically placed life-sized photos of beautiful local models over its urinals, according to WorldNetDaily.
The mural at the Hotel Sofitel shows the models wrinkling their noses, frowning in disgust or even gaping with glee as they scope out the men standing beneath them.
Some of the cute voyeurs sport cameras, binoculars or tape measures — and one is definitely shown laughing at the unfortunate man at her urinal.
"I think they're kind of taking a risk by putting that up," one men's room user said to New Zealand's One News.
"Certainly it wasn't our intention to offend anybody," hotel manager Mark Wilkinson told WorldNetDaily.
"I'm under a lot of pressure now to do something for the female toilets," he said. "I think you need to stay tuned on that. I think we will do something."
Male guests using the bathroom seemed to enjoy the swanky hotel's prank.
"I haven't looked at them that closely, and I'll get in trouble at home if I say I've got a favorite," one visitor told WorldNetDaily.
"I kind of like the woman with the binoculars," another user said.

SHELBY, Miss. (AP) — A restaurant owner is under investigation after he apparently tried to sell the meat of a cottonmouth moccasin to customers, police said.
Eddie Boone, a city worker, said he sold the owner of James Quality Market the venomous snake, which he had killed with a pipe while he was cleaning streets.
The snake "was gonna get me so I had to get him first," he said.
Boone said that while he was showing off the snake nearby Thursday, the owner of the grocery store-restaurant combo "came out and asked me if he could buy the snake for a dollar."
Police Chief Bobby Joe Williams went to the market after Boone mentioned the odd business transaction to police. The owner gave him the snake, which already had been skinned and filleted, Williams said.
"He was getting ready to cook and serve the snake," Williams said. "We want to see just what all this man has been cooking."
Investigators have declined to identify the businessman. The store has remained open.
Lee Ellington, a law enforcement officer for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, said it is illegal to buy or sell a non-game species. Penalties could include a maximum $5,000 fine, five days in jail and suspension of hunting and fishing privileges.
Municipal court clerk Cecilia Bland said putting a snake in a commercial freezer also could violate health codes, but she added that police have had trouble getting the health department to investigate.
Ellington said the businessman could have put his customers at risk by selling the meat.
"There are some Texas farmers that do serve rattlesnake, but they are professionals in detoxing the snake," Ellington said. "Odds are that this man is not a professional."

DALLAS, Texas (AP) — A 22-year-old man running from police chose the wrong house to hide in early this morning.
Christopher Lessner broke into the home of a 66-year-old Arlington grandmother and hid in a closet. But the woman found him — and shot him in the leg.
Arlington police say Lessner is being treated at Harris Hospital in Fort Worth for non-life-threatening injuries.
The incident began when police tried to stop a stolen pickup for speeding. The driver jumped from the truck, scaled a fence and ran into a wooded area.
Police were tracking him with dogs and a helicopter when they heard a gunshot.
That shot came from the grandmother's gun. She told police she had gotten up to let out her dog and brought a gun to protect her pet from coyotes.
She noticed signs of entry and tracked Lessner to the closet. When he tried to take her gun, she shot him.
Charges against Lessner are pending. The woman's name hasn't been released.

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — Ronald Meyers called police when he heard suspicious noises outside his home. He ended up in jail after officers saw something suspicious inside the home: an 8-foot-tall pot plant and nearly $100,000 worth of marijuana.
Meyers summoned officers to his home in an upscale neighborhood Thursday morning, claiming that someone was trying to open his windows and that he could hear voices outside.
Officers found no burglar but asked if they could check inside, said police spokesman Sgt. John Booth. When Meyers, 59, let them in, officers found more than $100,000 worth of marijuana, he said.
The stash included an 8-foot pot plant, more plants growing in the garage and harvested marijuana — some packed into large plastic bags — stuffed in large storage bins in a bedroom, Booth said.
Officers also found syringes, at least one methamphetamine pipe and other drug paraphernalia, he said.
Meyers was jailed on a charge of possession of marijuana for sale with bail set at $25,000.

Surprisingly, Inch-Square Lot Isn't Selling
SPENCER, Ind. (AP) — A tiny parcel of land in Owen County comes with a not-so-tiny price tag.
The county is trying to sell a 1-square-inch plot of land for $1,500. But it could find no buyers for the postage-stamp-sized plot during a tax sale.
"It's too small to plant a flower on," said Peter Dorsey, with the county's mapping department.
The inch-square parcel was originally part of a 1.12-acre tract under a separate deed, said auditor Angie Lawson. Officials think the tiny piece of land in the county west of Bloomington was deeded to someone in the 1960s, when people had to own property to use a nearby lake.
First National Bank foreclosed on the property owner's mortgage, which covered the entire 1.12-acre tract, and the land was up for bid at the tax sale. There is a minimum bid of $1,500 for tax sale parcels.
County attorney Richard Lorenz said he is trying to find a way around the tax sale rules so the county can get rid of the land and the responsibility of selling it. The county has to pay $85 for legal advertisements for each piece of property sold at a tax sale.
"It's a mess, and we're trying to get our lawyer to take care of it so we don't have to keep going through this at future tax sales," Lawson said.
Dorsey said anyone buying the plot could say they owned some of the most valuable land in the world. If an acre of land sold at that rate, it would cost nearly $7 billion, Dorsey said.
Lorenz suggested the county could give the land away.
"Maybe we could donate that 1-inch plot to Owen County Preservations as the smallest land donation in history," he said.

At Delivering Babies, He's No Hack
LISLE, Ill. (AP) — Nedal Haddad of Chicago understood his new job as a cab driver entailed delivery — taking passengers from one point to another, that is. He couldn't have imagined it involved delivering babies.
That's what happened Friday, about a week into his new job, when the 37-year-old picked up a pregnant woman in suburban Plainfield and began driving her to nearby Edward Hospital.
Before they could arrive at the Naperville hospital, the woman — whose mother and sister were also in the cab — began giving birth.
"She said, 'I think I'm going to have the baby,'" he later recalled her saying. "I said, 'You better not.'"
Haddad, who immediately pulled onto the shoulder of Interstate 88 near Lisle, said the woman's relatives started screaming and were too panicked to offer assistance. So he ordered them out of the car, rushed to the back seat and delivered the baby himself.
A father of three children, Haddad said he had never been in the delivery room with his wife. All he knew about childbirth came from watching a show on the Discovery Channel, said Haddad, who came to the United States 19 years ago from Jordan.
After the delivery, paramedics arrived, cut the umbilical cord and took the newborn girl to Edward Hospital. She weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and "is doing fine," Dr. Peter Weeks said.
The mother, who asked not to be identified, said the girl has been named Gabrielle.
"She is a beautiful baby girl," she said. "As you can imagine, it has been quite an amazing day."
Haddad not only helped deliver the girl, he also offered another gift of sorts. He waived the $60 cab fare.

Eva Hunts for Tamales
NEW YORK (AP) — Christmas is just over a month away, so it's time for Eva Longoria to load up her shotgun.
Longoria told Cosmopolitan magazine that being from Texas, she and her family "kill wild pigs for tamales."
The "Desperate Housewives" star said "hunting is a family thing" and they eat all they kill.
Longoria is such a good shot she beat Kiefer Sutherland and Michael Douglas at a shooting range while filming the movie "The Sentinel."
