World Cup Bathrooms

These awesome pictures are from Allan and were taken in Germany right after the world cup. In his words: "They had the best toilet accessory that I had ever experienced. Gave everyone a taste of World cup glory while vacating the system of german beer."

With a little bit of practice (actually lets be honest, us men have had a lifetime of practice)....GOOOOOOAAALLLL!!!!!

Art in Bathrooms

We are all used to seeing contemporary art in bathrooms. Usually its of the style "Call 555-555-5555 for a good time" or "Alex was here," but still. Well, Smith College has taken a different approach with the bathrooms in their art museum.

Raises one good question though....Where are people supposed to put their graffiti?

(Thanks Seguin!)

Subversive Disneyland

Larry sent me an email about a bathroom-related exhibit at a museum in Tanzania. (The exhibit is "Locus Focus" and the museum "The Museum of Old and New Art.) Ok. Seems innocent enough.

The exhibit is actually a toilet inside a row of cubicles and open to the public. A system of binoculars and mirrors enables you to get an up close and personal look at your anus while you defecate.

Now, two questions....Is this Old or New Art? and What the hell kind of a museum is this?

I found an article in "The Art Newspaper" about the museum. Here is the headline:

A “subversive Disneyland” at the end of the world: The gambling millionaire David Walsh is opening a museum in Tasmania that will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Here is a link: [WARNING: There is a graphic image in the article. Do not open at work!]

Buddy System

Remember kids....when you go out into the real world, its always important to have a buddy. You should stay with your buddy at all times.

Even when you go to the bathroom.

(Thanks Price!)

Protest Toilet

Headling from the New York Times: "Police: Suspicious Toilet With Phone Not Dangerous."

What can I say....I had to know more.

Someone left this outside of a courthouse in Maryland with a bunch of protest propaganda

More Weird Signs

Using a toilet is a lot like beerpong: There are always funky house rules. Here are a few:

I guess this is one way to stop somebody from hogging the stall. "Door will open automatically." They sure aren't messing around.

Or, if someone is in that stall you can just yell!

Speaking of yelling...

Doggy Poo

There is a Korean animated movie called "Doggy Poo."

This is the movie poster. Its a story about an existential piece of dog shit, an innocent new arrival to this cruel cruel world.

The weirdest part is that I have actually seen this film. It used to be on Netflix instant streaming. Junior year was fun.

Here is one of the reviews from Netflix:

This movie is sappy and ridiculous. Theres a lot of crying. And I think the English dubbing must have been done by the Teletubbies. What am I bringing away from this film? Apparently dog dookie is pretty stupid, doesnt like being alone, cries a lot, perhaps has low self esteem. Dear Dookie, you can not be as pretty as a star or a dandelion. No, not yours. Way to go Koreans. Thank you for taking 30 minutes of my life.

Non Bathroom Related Weirdness

I check the stats every once in a while to see if anyone actually reads these posts. These are the stats for "today," broken down by country.

Did New Jersey secede from the union? Or did we kick them out? Please say we kicked them out.

PS: About half of those hits are just google images indexing my site from its various country affiliate websites. I like it because it makes me feel popular and internationally relevant.

Oceanside Transit Center

I did a strange little event today....basically a microbrewery crawl using a light rail system that I didn't even know existed in North County San Diego. The places we were going were about a mile away from the stops so there was a little bit of exercise involved as well. The journey started and ended at the Oceanside Transit Center. Here is a little peek of the bathroom there:

I told my buddy that there weren't any doors. He replied with "Oh, you mean the doors are broken/missing?" There never were doors here. And just in case you get any subversive ideas

Yeah, they thought of that too.

Out Of Town

So I spent my New Years in Connecticut meeting up with some of my suitemates from last year. Carter brought me the following gift from japan:

It had a bunch of absurd text on it in japanese, giving this little anthropomorphized turd a whole backstory and everything. Here is a picture of him out of the box

Can you guess why this product exists? Here it is in action

Yes, that's right: It's soap.
