The Art Museum Toilet Museum of Art
(Above: A great work of art. Take my word for it.)
Today's post is in honor of a little something we all take for granted, but none of us could live without. (Well, we could but . . . ewww.) Toilets.
Not many people can truly appreciate these humble thrones, but now there's a place for the lucky few who see the beauty in a urinal and the artistry in a toilet seat. The Art Museum Toilet Museum of Art. (Try saying that a few times.)
There, you can check out glorious examples of porcelain art from around the world--from the squat toilets of the Tokyo Museum of Photography to the lovely urinals of New York's New Museum. (Warning! Not all of the bathrooms are clean!) You can even donate your own photos to the collection (if you're the sort of person who collects that sort of thing).

Not ready to get out of the bathroom? Check out the Homestar Spa, which turns your bathroom into a planetarium.
I was going to write a little something about outhouses, too, but I've decided they deserve their own post. Question #1: How many of you have actually seen or visited an outhouse? Question #2: Anyone seen Slumdog Millionaire?
PS: Who knew pink was so controversial?
