A Loo to Behold

Remember my post about the Seven Public Toilet Wonders of the World? The first entry has come in.

(Link via email from Patrix.)

Update: Entries have come in from Japan and Scotland (1,2).

(Links via email respectively from The Piker and Bishop Hill.)

Update 2 (July 11): The entires keep flooding in! Akhil Tandulwadikar points me to a wonderful see-through loo in Switzerland. Aspi Havewala writes in about a loo in Amsterdam that ensures “process control.” Mitesh’s entry would, on the other hand, make one lose control. And the noble Peter Griffin points me to The Good Loo Guide and The Bathroom Diaries, whose Golden Plunger Awards have rewarded many beauties.

Phew. I need a toilet break after that.
