A Non-Political Post You Can Flush Down the Drain

As an Asian, I get to use my free race pass card and say this:

Asians are frakkin' weirdos, man.

I'm sure some of you have received those darn e-mail forwards with pictures like this:

That's just....well, I don't know what to say.

Poking around at Reuters, I found the following:

Customers dine at the Modern Toilet diner in the Shilin district in Taipei, Taiwan, November 9, 2007.

A customer eats a set meal shaped like a toilet bowl at the Modern Toilet diner in the Shilin district in Taipei, Taiwan, November 9, 2007.

A waiter brings a set meal to a customer at the Modern Toilet diner in the Shilin district of Taipei, Taiwan, November 9, 2007.

A customer looks at her ice cream at the Modern Toilet diner in the Shilin district of Taipei, Taiwan, November 9, 2007. All 100 seats in the crowded diner are made from toilet bowls, not chairs. Sink faucets and gender-coded "WC" signs appear throughout the diner.

I'm guessing "vanilla" isn't on the flavor menu; although, "rocky road" could very well be.

Now, I've got just one question, because I'm dying to know: What the frak do you suppose the restrooms look like?

If I owned one of these, I'd feel like Captain Kirk readying the photon torpedoes.

I just don't think I could get by the look with the ice cream!

Talk about a post that is one for the crapper!

Um...what the flying hell? Who in their right mind would think of doing up a restaurant to remind everyone of a bathroom?

Just when you think you've seen it all.

That's pretty weird Word. I guess maybe if you're constipated this suggestive presentation may help without the use of harsh chemical stimulants. (sound like a commercial?) I don't think this behavior is limited to Asians though. Just go to any place where there are a bunch of regular guys of any national origin hanging around together and soon the talk of gas passing and other items of human bodily functions will be the lively topic.

I'm not talking about just bathroom humor. I'm talking about "culture weird".


I have relatives who are Japanese. Let me tell you: The Japanese- God bless them- some weird humor!!!

OK, if you can play the Asain card, I can play the fat, white guy card. I would not eat from a fake toilet bowl. And yes, Asains are weird. Tell us about thos weird toe sox with toe finger things. (That was probably the worse description EVER of what I was trying to describe.)

Good grief! I wouldn't eat there either. Yes, Wordsmith, I believe I can agree that the culture is weird!

Hi Word. Ok this post jarred a memory loose. (no not the poo part) I'm wondering if you sent me a myspace friends request? I had no idea you're asian but it makes sense now. A guy from SM sent me a friends request & I wondered who the heck is this? Thinking it was some random person. Then I saw this and remembered that I had on my blog my myspace i.d. so can you email me if it was you? I'm feeling so duh right now. gailalison10@gmail dot com thanks
