Disgrestaurants: Potty Mouth

November 16th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

I don’t get shit fetishes. I really don’t. In fact, I’m not so into shit (go ahead, psychoanalyze away), period. I’m one of those people who NEVER checks mine out before I send it down cuz it’s brown. I don’t care if it floats. I don’t care if I’m getting enough fiber. I could, pardon the pun, give two shits if it has an interesting shape.

So that’s why I really don’t get this new restaurant in Taipei, called “Modern Toilet,” where the chairs are shaped like toilet seats and they serve up yummy piles of this stuff:

God, I feel famished. I mean, ewww.

Thanks Mimi!

Olympoo Poopvenirs

I’m clearly in a scatological frame of mind, as this is my second post today about poop, but this Reuters headline stopped me in my, er, um, tracks: “China seeks profit from panda poo”

This looks like it would make a terrific picture frame!

We’d written before about a Chinese factory making paper out of panda poop, but now a wildlife research center in Chengdu is making…Olympic souvenirs.

Researchers at the centre in Chengdu, capital of mountainous Sichuan province, had sculpted photo frames, bookmarks, fans and panda statues out of the 300 tonnes of the stuff produced by 60 giant pandas each year, state media said on Tuesday.

Jing Shimin, assistant to the director of the base, proudly declared that the souvenirs would be relatively odour-free.

Uh, we’ll be the judge of that.

Awkward Trends

This can’t be true, can it?

“TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s second-biggest toilet maker INAX Corp. has joined porcelain powerhouse Toto with tales of smoking toilets and burning bidets.

INAX, owned by JS Group Corp., said it had not made public seven cases of malfunctioning “washlets” — a combination toilet and bidet common in Japanese homes — that smoked or caught fire from 1991 to 2005.”

“INAX’s announcement followed an apology Monday from Toto Ltd., which revealed that 26 malfunctioning washlets had emitted smoke and another three had caught fire.”

So I’ve already used my “hot ass” joke.

How about…

“Boy, I suppose this pretty much guarantees a ‘flaming pile of shit,’ eh guys?”

A Shitty Story

Reuters reports that according to a local tabloid, Nanjing woman survived a fall from a sixth-floor balcony thanks to a “convenient” 20-cm pile of excrement that workers happened to empty out of a septic tank onto the sidewalk.

No Shit!?!??
