Urinal "Cakes"?

Why do people insist on associating urinals with edible sweets like cakes and mints? Honestly, it's gross. The last thing I want to think about when I hear the word "urinal" is "mmm. cake." or "mmm. mints." or even "mmm. Jujubes."

Why can't we, instead, refer to those awful smelling, but necessary things as something more innocuous and, preferably, inedible? Like how about "urinal puck"? or "urinal refresher"?


Whatever works.
