A rather unusual dining-trend popular in Asia is making its way over to the US - but it may not be for everyone.

A toilet-themed restaurant is about to open with lavatory seats in place of dining chairs and meals served in urinals.

Will there be 3-day old newspapers, last year's magazines and air fresheners scattered around the "dining" area? What's in the restrooms, kitchen counters and sinks and tables for 1 --- or 2? What if you forget where you are while dining and you just. . .No matter. This fad will soon go down the drain.

Toilets.  Food is the first thing that comes to mind.

Gee with the patronage this will attract - how long do you think it will be before someone decides they don't really need to leave their seat to use the actual restroom?

Can see this business going down the pan pretty quick, but do like the idea of not having to get up everytime you need a wee or poop.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Yeah, the visuals really don't help the restaurant.  But I bet the trendy will flock there for a little while, at least.

Yep it will be a one visit only curiosity event.  I pity any poor sod who thinks it makes a great venue for a date night tho.

And how are you going to sit on a urinal to eat?

I guess this is taking toilet humor to a whole new (albeit disgusting) level.

I wish I hadn't read that post. lol
