Japan makes talking toilet, travelers don’t quite rejoiceNominee

December 17th, 2009 by Doug Lansky

Don’t suppose it’s any weirder than K.I.T.T, the talking car.  And you don’t have to suffer through David Hasselhoff’s singing.

If you don’t speak Japanese, it’s hard to know what it’s saying. What the hell would a toilet say if it could speak?

Whaddya think?

World’s Worst ToiletNominee

June 23rd, 2009 by Doug Lansky

A public, multi-user toilet in the countryside of China.  Forget the lack of doors or cleaning… most impressive is that you can drive your motercycle right into the bathroom.

Worst Inflight Toilet MalfunctionNominee

April 27th, 2009 by Doug Lansky
toilet1photo:  glenmcbethlaw

Quick: what do you call a transatlantic flight from Amsterdam to Newark with a backed up toilet spilling human excrement down the aisle for seven hours?  Continental Airlines called it “poor conditions.”  Probably not the words passenger Collin Brock would have used. He felt “physically abused and neglected,” he told Seattle’s KING-TV in his home state.   The flight was diverted to Shannon, Ireland to fix the problem. But after the extra stop and delay, the sewage flooding developed again when the plane took off.  The reported culprit was a latex glove someone had tried to flush down the loo.  Continental apologized to its customers and issued vouchers.
