I went out for a New Years beer and ended up discovering this great graffitied restroom at Done Right Inn.
There were a few decent words of wisdom written over these walls:
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Sex & The City’s Steve Brady (Miranda’s partner) is a lesbian
Whitney was wrong: it’s not right, AND it’s not ok
Don’t ever “agree to disagree”. Be a MAN or a woman and fight … for the right to paaaaartay
If only women were gravestones: then they’d never be told to turn their frown upside down
Men who finger bang will be condemned to come back as women who are finger banged
Piss in the fuckin’ toilet, douche
Plus there was a whole wall dedicated to an insightful Bukowski quote:
If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way.
Ho ho ho, it’s two days til Christmas AAAND Toilography turns six years old today! Happy holidays everyone!
I never know where a Toilography photo will show up next!
This week’s surprise is the 2018 edition of Guinness World Records, they have a whole page on world record toilets and two of my pics made their way into the section for the Tallest House Shaped Like A Toilet and First Toilet Theme Park. I may not have a record in there myself (yet!) but it was pretty hilarious to stumble across the pics published inside.
This is Mr Toilet House which I visited in Suwon, South Korea a few years ago (check out the original post here). It’s a marvellous museum to visit and includes an outdoor exhibition of toilets from across history. A very worthwhile record indeed 🚽🏠
By the way, Guinness, uh, is there a record for the most amount of cool toilets visited?
Lov on Montreal’s de la Montagne serves some pretty delicious vegan & vegetarian fare and I lov (ha!) that the theme continues when you enter the men’s room.
It always makes me laugh to see a double toilet and I know of two classics in Montreal (the other one being in the ladies room at Candi Bar).
Here at this popular live music venue, Cafe Resonance, you can bring all the support you need as you go about your business.
One of Toilography’s favourite restaurants in Montreal is Mozza Pâtes et Passions. This was my third visit in just as many years – I keep returning not only for their open & experimental take on Italian cuisine (where else can you get linguine with porto & goats cheese on the menu?) but for the ultimate dessert: the famous DISCO TOILET!!
I’ve seen a number of disco toilets over the years but this fabulous loo at Mozza remains my #1 🙂
Here at La Graine Brûlée in Montreal’s Gay Village there are actually signs on the restroom doors warning people with epilepsy to see staff at the counter before going inside! The strobe lighting is on point inside their artful, dimly lit stalls.
