Flush With Funds

Do I Have To Put The Seat Down?

A chain of twelve restaurants with a toilet theme has opened in Taiwan. Seats in the Modern Toilet restaurants are toilet-shaped and napkins are dispensed from toilet rolls on tables. Food containers are also toilet or wash-basin shaped. The owner claims the edgy nature of the restaurants is attracting younger diners.

FOOTNOTE: Fancy a game of craps?

My Goodness, That's a bit too "edgy" for me. I think that's a lot of restaurants with a weird theme.
Love your postscript too. You have a clever way with words.

Interesting to see that idea resurrected. When I was in college, about 35 years ago, there was a place that opened with the same theme here in S. Texas. The owners called it, appropriately enough, The Outhouse. Wish you had a picture of this new one. :)

Peace!

The last thing I'm thinking about while sitting on a toilet seat is what to eat next!

Suwon in South Korea boasts a toilet-shaped house, pictures here: http://www.foxnews.com/photoessay/0,4644,2621,00.html#6_0

I wonder if the toilets are house-shaped... painful.

Think that would go over in the U.S. or Australia, David? Ha!

At least you wouldn't need to be disturbed just as you tuck into your dinner!

Do people need to get up to use the bathroom?

You can you just tell by how red the person's face is across the table from you while your're chatting.

Alternate Footnote:

Customers like toilet bowls for dinner until having to use the bathroom and finding dinner plates in the stalls...

Not wanting to pee on your parade, but think that marketing ploy might just have to go on the dunny heap. EEEEUUWW. Tell me they don't use recorded flatulence as background music.....

Oh yuck! I don't want to eat there.

Love the footnote and the comments.

Ha,ha! What will they think of next. I wonder what's on the menu. On second thoughts, I don't wanna know. :-)
