Sometimes you really need to go. I’m sure you can see the good at home (unless you clean house like he and his housemates did in college). Here are some photos of the bad, the ugly and the just plain interesting toilets we have seen.
Metal toilet, just like in the slammer
At a rest stop on the side of the road in France
I swear that wet stuff is how I found it and not from me. I wasn’t about to clean it for the picture though.
When you see this, you know you are in trouble because it means that there isn’t any in the picture below
You should have grabbed your toilet paper at the entrance. Don’t learn this lesson the hard way. If you are a woman, pray that a woman comes out of the one you are entering. The men only use them for one reason. See below.
Sometimes they are more permanent like this one in London. It seems as though there are way more of these than toilets for women around. I would love a little bathroom parity. By the way, those aren’t his feet.
I guess it could be worse. This is the one in Chateau de Chillion. It just went down to the lake. Not great for swimming.
Can you guess what these holes were used for on the Swedish warship Vasa?
Along the same lines, the “throne” in the Tower of London
After seeing all of these, sometimes you will gladly fork over some money for a clean bathroom (which is a lot easier with the Euro).
Whether you call it privy, can, potty, flush toilet, bathroom, porta potty, washbasin, toilette, toiletten, lavatory, commode, throne, pot, outdoor restroom, crapper, john, wash-room, rest room, convenience, powder-room, the gents, water-closet, the lav, outhouse, latrine, the netty, the porcelain god, chamber pot, little girl’s room, the breakroom or something else, we all need them. Hope you’re always able to find one when you need one. Happy weekend!
