Bathroom-themed restaurant in LA serves ‘golden poop’ rice
Kansas City Star ^ | October 16 | LISA GUTIERREZ

Posted on 10/19/2013 4:40:38 PM PDT by a fool in paradise

It’s called the Magic Restroom Cafe, but there is really no mystery here in what is being called America’s first bathroom-themed restaurant where patrons sit on toilets to dine...

The Los Angeles Times reports that YoYo Li, a first-time restaurant owner from China, borrowed the idea from the Modern Toilet chain of eateries in China and Taiwan.

Everything in the restaurant has a potty theme – the dishes, the menu items, the seating...

The germophobes will not like this at all.

But if the kitchen installs the Clarkman disposal the cooks will be able to shower while preparing food.

I have some ideas: a luxury burger called the Upper Decker, a clam dish called the Cleveland Steamer, Dirty Sanchez menudo which of course gives you a mustache...but I’m still trying to figure out what the Hot Carl would be.

Not really a new concept. Bobby McGee’s (remember them?) served cocktails in little ceramic toilets many years ago. I still have one or two of them around somewhere ;-)

Five words into this, and I knew it had to have origins from either China, Thailand or Japan. I say that not as a put down, but a fact of different cultural sensitivities. Some concepts are so over the top strange here in the states, are like, whatever in most every other part of the world. I’m not even talking about the doggie-diners with real dogs. Or the Bug Burgers. Someone told me most Chinese from China do not like cheese. I don’t know if that’s still true. It’s not something you just go up to strangers and ask about. “Hi! I’m Lee. Do you or don’t you like cheese, and why?”

I think the bathroom looks cool, but I wouldn’t want to use it.

Wouldn’t really want to dine in such an establishment.

One of my favorite Halloween party treats was to fill a (new) cat litter tray with crushed peanuts and throw in lots of almond roca. It’s universally popular. :-)

I’m not sure that photo is of the bathroom. That may be the dance floor.

It was just a matter of time...!

(And before someone asks, I will post this until the idiots in government alter this insane and now dangerous UNILATERAL FREE – NOT FAIR -- trade policy with China and the fools in the multinationals STOP exporting the production of EVERYTHING to China and bring those jobs home.

As you think about that, recall that in ancient times, the Romans and others would catapult disease-riddled corpses over the walls of cities they besieged to sicken and kill the enemy. The Chinese know that history even if we obviously have forgotten it. Get my drift there?

On a recent visit to China, a friend spotted this ad in a Beijing newspaper. He sent me the photo with a translation of the ad copy.

BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR AND JOIN CHINA’S NEW MONIED ELITE!

Yes, you can now join the millions of happy and prosperous Chinese citizens taking advantage of the growing numbers of American and Western multinational corporations “outsourcing” their production to the hard-working and industrious people of China. This outsourcing has now spread to their food supplies and ingestible items. Since these firms pay us for gross weight – and this new weight will be pretty gross – and the stupid American government only spot-checks imported items in these categories (they just got lucky on the anti-freeze thing), it has opened an entirely new opportunity which our beloved Chairman is offering to any Chinese citizen willing to do a little of what the foolish Americans call “grunt work.”

Installing one of these state-of-the-art food additive production facilities behind YOUR hovel is as simple as clipping the coupon below and sending it to the address shown. Your production plant will be shipped to you in 4 to 6 weeks. Supplies are limited so don’t fart around. ACT NOW!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

These silly Americans have an expression we have “borrowed” and modified to describe this new and exciting venture: “Don’t give me any s**t.”

Our motto will be “We won’t GIVE you any s**t. But we’ll SELL it to you fools at a really great price.”

Better yet, we convince them to COME HERE to pick it up and save us the shipping costs.

AND LOOK FOR A NEW DROP-DEAD MONEY-MAKER COMING SOON. SOYLENT YELLOW PROMISES TO BE BIG!!

AND YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED TO KNOW THAT THE “CHERY” PERSONAL VEHICLE TO BE IMPORTED BY CHRYSLER IS SIMPLY A HORIZONTALLY MODIFIED VARIATION OF THE VERTICAL UNIT SHOWN ABOVE. WE SIMPLY SLAP AN ENGINE AND SOME WHEELS ON THAT PUPPY AND OFF SHE GOES! AMERICA’S VAST ILLEGAL POPULATION OUGHT TO SNAP THEM UP LIKE TACOS.
