This would be perfect in Flushing!

Sim Jae-duck has made his political career as South Korea's Mr. Toilet by beautifying public restrooms. Now he's got a home befitting his title: a toilet-shaped domicile complete with the latest in lavatory luxury.

Politician Builds Toilet-Shaped House

Sim is building the two-story house set to be finished Sunday to commemorate the inaugural meeting later this month of the World Toilet Association. The group, supported by the South Korean government, aims no less than to launch a "toilet revolution," by getting people to open their bathroom doors for the sake of improving worldwide hygiene.

"The toilet revolution should start with talking about toilet issues freely," said Song Young-kwon, head of the organizing committee for the five-day conference that opens Nov. 21.

The toilet theme is central to the house named Haewoojae, or a "place to solve one's worries," shaped like a 24 1/2-foot-tall toilet bowl. Thinking of how to push forward his cause of having better hygiene and sanitation, Sim tore down his former home to build the $1.1 million building.

Occupants gain access to the roof balcony around the rim of the "bowl" by climbing up stairs through what would be a toilet drain - which is equipped to collect rain for some functions to conserve drinking water. The home is encased in smooth, white-painted steel that appears similar to the ceramics used to make toilets.


No comment on this one. We'll leave it up to you.

Is it true that John Liu is considering tearing down his present home off Bayside Ave.
and building a smaller replica
of the Korean toilet house......heh, heh, heh ?

After all he is the king of crap of Flushing politics.
What could be more fitting?

The question remaining is.....
will he let Toby Stavisky
use his John for an emergency pit stop ?

Only if the porcelain is reinforced with steel girders to support the weight and girth of her enormous ass!

Ya betta move over Crappy.....
when she cuts loose.....nobody's safe!

How about the landscaping......
maybe put in a garden path in the shape of
a coil of unrolled toilet paper
flanked on both sides by "fragrant" Skunk Weed ?

A plunger (the plumber's helper)
could support the mailbox.

Crapper, of course I'd want to come home and live in one! I did and do!* - my pop was the Tidy-Bowl Man. When the flush came, we'd go 'round and 'round - wheeeeee!

*That's "do" not "doo"
