America’s first toilet themed restaurant opens appropriately in Los Angeles

Possibly one of the more disturbing trends to come out of Taiwan, the bathroom theme restaurant, has finally come state side with the opening of the new eatery, “Magic Restroom”. Menu items include such treats as “Black Poop”, “Constipation”, and my personal favorite, “Bloody Number Two”.

Daring diners should head to City of Industry (that’s right, in the middle of all the strip clubs).

One of Hitler’s private toilets has been hiding out in New Jersey for decades
According to Kohfeldt, the toilet came off of Hitler’s biggest private yacht, the Aviso Grille, which was between 400 and 500 feet long, and at the time one of the biggest private boats in existence. “He wanted to ride it down the Thames in London and go live in Windsor Palace when he invaded,” Kohfeldt told me on a subzero morning last week as he pulled a sink—also from the ship, and now in pieces—out of a box and laid them out for me to examine each of the maker’s stamps and faucets. Another resident of Florence, Dick Glass—an expert on Hitler’s yacht—told me that the ship was armed, had a crew of 245 men, a private room for Eva Braun, and was bigger than J.P. Morgan’s ship Corsair. The Aviso Grille also played a significant role in one particular moment in history: Hitler’s Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz stood on the deck of the ship on May 1, 1945, and gave the first word of the Führer’s death and took command of Germany.  After the war ended, the Aviso Grille was taken to the United States and ended up in the hands of New Jersey shipyard owner Harry Doan, who illegally charged visitors 25 cents to board and tour Hitler’s Yacht. However, according to Glass, both Doan and the federal government wanted to prevent the ship from becoming a memorial to Hitler, and so it was scrapped in Doan’s salvage yard in the early 1950s.

This is the pseudo poop used to test the flush load on toilets

When toilet companies need to test the flush load on toilets— that is, whether or not their product can handle that massive dump you’ve been holding in for days— they don’t leave things to chance, and they don’t use real poo. Instead, they use a finely concocted synthetic shit mixture that has the same weight, density, buoyancy and consistency of your average log.
