More Toilet Tomfoolery

A little more on the $multimillion toilets Seattle is abandoning because they quickly become clogged with garbage, and are used for prostitution and drug-dealing. Here's an amusing shot from the Seattle Times:


Original caption:

In Seattle's Hing Hay Park, busker Greg Spence Wolf performs while a person trying to use the public toilet pries open malfunctioning doors.

Or maybe the guy's just trying to get a peek at whatever sordid activities are going on inside.

The farce has been costing $360 per day per toilet. Andy Ryan of Seattle Public Utilities explains the "real problem":

The real problem we're having with [the toilets] is that there is a public perception we're not getting our money's worth.

Actually, the real problem is that we let bureauweenies spend our money for us.

On a tip from Lyle.

This fall on NBC: "The 6.6 Million Dollar Outhouse" - starring Sean Penn as "the busker"!

The guy couldn't get in because the outhouses are reserved for the disadvantaged[bums] with valid bum pin numbers.

So the guy is sitting there just blowing his horn..... and clueless. He probably got a MoonBat Arts grant to just blow his horn...

Wow, I would think they would be more liberal in Seattle, they should be telling people this is a reason why they need to legalize drugs and prostitution.
