I was in Singapore earlier this year, and I have to say that my relatives took me to Raffles Hotel, and insisted I sample the top-notch toilets. They were very proud of them. It must be a Singapore thing.

I don't get it. I'd still use my foot to flush.

I'm pretty sure that a five-star toilet would flush for you. And thank you for your contribution.

I remember reading a local English language Chinese paper years ago that weighed the pros and cons of toilet paper vs. bidets. The article was called "The Trauma of Lower Body Cleansing." Since then I've taken to calling toilet paper Lower Body Trauma Paper.

Some people take toilet training way too far. It's not an Olympic event, people.

"I am looking very forward to experiencing this toilet myself so I can walk out of the toilet feeling happy"

Well, who isn't ?

I usually walk out of the toilet a happy man.
 
2003-07-01 04:09:18 PM  
Yes, but are the Singapore whores still disease - ridden ?
 
2003-07-01 04:11:17 PM  
I love the toilets that talk.

"Thank you come again"
"It's been a pleasure to serve you"
"Yummy yummy yum"

In other news, local football legend Al Bundy has left the country to qoute "find god".

Hey, five start is great. The real question here is:

Is it J-Lo approved?

"A poster in the women's restroom reads "Dirty toilets attract the wrong crowd," and depicted a woman dressed as a giant cockroach and smoking, with strands of toilet paper hanging from her insect-like legs."

That's discriminatory. Female cockroach smokers need to use the bathroom too. Time to sue.
 
2003-07-01 04:15:48 PM  
I am honored to accept your waste!
 
2003-07-01 04:17:59 PM  
wow I guess that roach was really a cock smoker
 
2003-07-01 04:18:00 PM  
Okay, what the hell is wrong with peope in Singapore? I mean really, that's out of control. Did you read about all the behavior-modification stuff at the end of the article? Why exactly haven't we blown them up yet?

"I am looking very forward to experiencing this toilet myself so I can walk out of the toilet feeling happy"

Is it just me or does this sound like something Mr. Sparkle would say?

"It's Super Happy Rainbow Toilet Fun Time!"
/sorry

Seriously though,I have this book from 1927 called "The Royal Road" by Charles Tyrrell in my antique book collection that goes into quite a lot of...ehem... *cough*...detail for back then about bathroom hygiene. Weird.

How would they rate Veterans Stadiums bathrooms.
 
2003-07-01 04:21:20 PM  
!!!SPLUGE!!! (heavy brick hitting water)
"Thank you for that, I am happy to have recieved your waste."

!!!FAAAAAAART!!!
"Thank you, that was quite a powerful blast."

"Dirty toilets attract the wrong crowd." Que obligatory picture of someone smoking marijuana and outrageous claim that weed makes you pee on seats and not wash your hands and what not.
 
2003-07-01 04:25:02 PM  
I usually feel happy after leaving the crapper too.
 
2003-07-01 04:28:58 PM  
I'm thinking that any crowd that attracted to any toilet is the wrong crowd to hang out with.

Dave ought to be pleased...
 
2003-07-01 04:40:22 PM  
Bah... I'll try again, because..er... We need a SFW image of someone sitting on the john.

 
2003-07-01 04:44:56 PM  
Aw who gives a crap???

(Ha-ha-ha)

Get it?
 
2003-07-01 04:52:41 PM  
Why do they call it taking a dump, and not leaving a dump? After all, you aren't really taking it anywhere! (unless you're a prison inmate)

Nothing is wrong with the people of Singapore. They have gone from a Third World Nation to one of the most modern and forward-thinking countries in the world in just under 40 years; not a bad accomplishment when you understand that they are surrounded by predominantly Muslim countries (not that there is anything wrong with that). No one is forced to live in Singapore; if you choose not to live there, you can move to Malaysia right next door. By the way, they have excellent docking stations for the US Aircraft Carriers.

Besides, what's wrong with clean bathrooms?

That sounds like one heck of a poster! Where can I buy it?
This article was sort of funny, but is tempered by the fact that public facilities in some countries are scary. I mean you just don't want to know how dirty, smelly, run down, and disgusting some of them can be. This is from personal experience. I don't know about making you happy, but I at least like to be able to leave a restroom without wondering if I'm about to contract who knows what.

Jennifer Lopez must be happy to hear this.

what a load of crap.

"In total we spend almost three years of our lives on the toilet. It's natural and it's normal, so let's learn to say: 'Wow! That's a great toilet!" Sim said in the Happy Toilet program booklet.

OK...here goes:

Wow! That's a great terlet!

Wait! Lemme try again:

Wow! That's a great tourlet!

Hang on! One more time:

Wow! That's a great teeee-ourlet!

Dammit!! This is harder than it sounds!

"I look forward to decreasing the rating to 2 stars"
 
2003-07-01 06:09:30 PM  
>>they have excellent docking stations for the US Aircraft Carriers.<<

Ahh, that would explain why we haven't blown the place up yet.

Besides, relax guy. I was only kidding around. You just need a rest fella.

This was a FEATURE story?

An award can be withdrawn if the public reports a decline in standards, the booklet said.

I HATE it when that happens! :D
 
2003-07-01 08:58:13 PM  
I wonder if they have this type of signage?
NSFW animation
