When ya gotta go.............

Let's face it....one of the most important rooms in any home or business is the room where you do your business. Without one the world would be a "crappy" place.

So here's a little photo montage I'd like to entitle ......."The Ode to Snappy Crappers"

Is there such thing as too much...........

.

.


You couldn't just go poop here....it would need to be a "performance"!

.

.



You've probably seen this one before...but it deserves another look....that IS a painted floor. I bet people take a step back when they open the door....and I'm not totally sure I could walk in there.


If floor art isn't your thing....how about ceiling art?

.

.


I'm pretty sure this concept will get most men to wash their hands........


And this one will convince women NOT to...........

.

.
I adore this bathroom (located in Japan) I dig that you get to wear the skis.....And in this bathroom you don't go "wee" you go "WHEEEEEEEEEEEE"

.

.

.


And now for the Creme de la Creme of all bathrooms. This is actually a public restroom in Texas. Here is the view from the outside..................


And this is the view from the inside..................

It's one way glass...so nobody can see you......but...........

Could you potty here?????????

Oh, goodness...I don't think I could. I had better just stay with my own boring one.

Really cute post...loved it.

roy/elisabeth dean said...

There is NO way I could pee in that see-thru potty! Even if I WAS the only one seeing through!

Pretty sure I couldn't pee in the gild and wisteria potty-room either!

However...I would love to have one of those penis faucets!

You're up late! Too much Easter candy?

♥,Lilly

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

Holy CRAP!

I love them all. I can't even choose which one I like the best...and even though I'd probably have a tough time "going" in the Texas see-through cubicle, it sure would be fun to try!

Sue said...

You must sit up all night just to find these great pictures you always come up with...I love the floor painted like the bottom of an airlane...and ofcourse the city street toilet with the one way glass...I'm a "World Class pee'er" but I wouldn't even use that!!

Kristina P. said...

I was so tempted to post that picture of the bathroom with the ladies bending over. Super classy.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I'd definitely have performance anxiety using the potty with the downhill ski slope. It would make me feel like I was getting ready to take a flying leap.

Mrs. B. Silly said...

OMG, I don't know if I could wash my hands in that one sink! I've been in a public bathroom that is clear until you lock the door and that made me pretty nervous...what if the system fails in the middle of your business? Eeeek!
That painted floor and the ceiling were both amazing.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

No, no I sure couldn't go in the glass potty! I do know some people though who would probably be little pervs in there. These pics are way cool. I have seen a couple of these before and some of those would make me pretty nervous. I had to laugh at the men's restroom with the butt and legs at the sink. I can just imagine the juvenile behavior of the guys. The pecker and balls faucet is hilarious! Wonder if they make that in a drinking fountain. Guess we'd find out who the kinky people were!

Great post!

Tristan said...

that's just too much..LOL!!

UM, and I don't know if I would use that glass one..lol..I would go stan in it though..just to get the experience..lol!

Mama said...

Dang, look what you did I have to pee now ROFL, those are some strange places you frequent haha. I think I would enjoy ski-peeing in Japan the best. Kathy.

I am having a cookbook give-away, I know you don't cook (oz and crumpet told me) but I like looking at the pictures, come and enter anyways.

Dixie said...

You've just inspired me to do that post I've been thinking about for the past 6-months...

"Men's restrooms I've accidently walked in to... and the men that were standing there..."

thanks for always leaving me with a great big smile!

onlymehere said...

Nope, even though nobody could see me I'd get stage fright! LOL! If they put their face right up to the glass maybe they really could see you, I don't want to test it out and see though!

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

I don't think I could be in any of them LOL

Loving Annie said...

Ha-Ha, Nikki, those were great !!!

I could NOT potty, there, and I am shuddering with fear that every man on the planet will now order one of those sinks with the uhmmm, red thing in front :)

And I'd have a hard time washing my hands out of that particular faucet, wondering how many other hands it was going to wash that day :)

The gorgeous bathroom I loved, and the skis were great. Nothing like making your uhhhm necessary room fun !

Anne Fannie said...

One way glass huh? You know that some pervert has some camera somewhere in there if he went through all that trouble to make that! And then there's the balls handles picture you showed....I don't think so....

LadyFi said...

Brilliant! I love that see-thru potty! And a loo with ceiling art would be great too!

KC Mom said...

Well...I never...
I'm speechless.
I seriously need a bathroom with all those toliet paper rolls for my daughters.
I could never use the bathroom with the painted floor. Too real..
The one way mirror...crazy!!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

Goodness...I don't know about the glass one...Intellectually I would understand that people couldn't see me BUT...(no pun intended)

Sandy Toes said...

NO~

And that faucet....oh my! That is just crazy gross!

Heather said...

You know we just bought a house that needs some cosmetic updates, including the bathrooms, so THANKS for the great ideas on ways to freshen things up when we move!

Hee!

I don't know if I could use that last bathroom. I think I'd be too nervous that there'd be a one-way glass FAIL somehow, like it would just stop working. LOL!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

OMG, I've seen that one way glass one several times and the thought of it still freaks me out. But that painted floor? Nuh uh, that can't just be painted. It looks like a photo they had put on the floor or something. Pretty amazing actually.

Love your pecker faucet. Now I've got a visual of taking a drink out of it. Ewwwwwwwwwww

Justine :o )

Lee Laurie said...

I could not use that last bathroom! And just think how many 'germs' are on those red booties and legs! lol Gross!

Jessica said...

You gotta love TEXAS...lol.

Hugs~ J.

P.S. You have increased my already deep fear of public restrooms. :)

Chris said...

Hi Nik, I see you still have that wondeful humor. I actually have been in the gild and wisteria bathroom, I think, if that's the one in Branson. Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Even though I don't have time to post yet, I still enjoy reading them when I get a moment. :)

Love ya,
Chris

Melissa said...

Other than the first one with the butt load of toilet paper, I am pretty sure I would have performance issues! They are hysterical!

Gaston Studio said...

GREAT post and photos! Think if I got in that last one, there would be a huge line outside because I wouldn't want to come out! Spying on people could turn into a fetish.

Gaston Studio said...

Meant to mention that my absolute favorite is the painted floor! What a thrill that could be!

~♥~ Monica S said...

HAhahah!! WOW!! HOW do people come up with such great ideas??? WOW!! I think I would have problems in mot of these bathrooms!
Those sinks (for men) were hysterical! haha!! You are so right!
Love your sence of humor!

Monica

MBB Founder and Editor Denene Millner said...

The bathroom with the "ladies" bent over the sink is much too much--ROFL!!!! And ain't no way I'd go in that "see-through" bathroom... ain't no way!

Darlene said...

Those bathrooms are all CRAZY!!! NO WAY in the glass one!

Suzi said...

Love it. I think if I had to go bad enough, I could use the one in Texas.

Deb said...

In reference to the last toilet, as long as there is a lock on the door, I can use it! LOL!!!! Deb

Smilingsal said...

I'd have a hard time using that last one.

Michele said...

LMAO...you crack me up Nikki! What a great post! I don't know if I could use that see through wall one tho...but when you gotta go, you gotta go!

Have a great week!

Hugz,
Michele

Becky said...

I do not think I could potty there! LOL! I would be so worried that people would be watching!

I am glad I have the "run of the mill" kind!

Darla said...

Get out of here! LOL!!!

Nancy said...

No way I would not go in that glass potty!!!

Not So Average Mama said...

The Men's restroom photo made me bust out laughing! Tooooo funny!

Beth at Aunties said...

Some funny designers were being creative!
I would probably feel a little liberated in the bottom one...I know...shocking! :-)

Laura said...

All those bathrooms make mine look super plain! I don't know if I could go into those painted floor bathrooms, or that one-way glass - too funny!

Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry said...

What an awesome post with photos! My favorite is the toilet with skis, I don't ski, so it would be a surreal experience.
Never in a million, gazillion years would I go in the last one.

Carlie said...

Wow, cool paint jobs! I want to paint my bathroom with the downhill ski slope!! Definitely NOT the sky view though, eeeek!!!!

Swirl Girl said...

Where do you find these !!

I don't think I could go in the last one...I get enough performance anxiety when there are other people in the bathroom!

Martini said...

Your blog is too cute! I will definitely be back.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Ohhh, the male anatomy sink was FUUUUUUUUUUUNNY!!! AHAHAHAHAH!

hellosweetworld said...

Those are some crazy bathrooms! Not sure about the last one. I'd probably only go there if it was a major emergency. Hehe.

This might sound weird but your post helped me remember my dream from last night about a toilet that started floating when you sat on it....yes, i am strange - i know.

nanny said...

Those are too funny,,,I don't think I could go in that floor painted one,,,

devri said...

I just threw up a litle in my mouth over the male sink.. eww!!

YOu crackle me up..

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

No, there is no way in this world I would pee in that!

The one of the painted floor is very cool, but freaky at the same time.

That Girl in Brazil said...

Holy crap.

Where do you find these pictures?!

Grand Pooba said...

Oh my gosh, i could not go in any of those bathrooms! Especially that last one...shiver...

dana said...

No matter how badly I had to pee, it just wouldn't happen. Nope. Not a drop.

The Garden of Egan said...

No way could I ever go in the one with all the toilet paper....gives the appearance of wayyy tooo much traffic! Ick. As for the other pictures, how in the world did you find those? Sorry couldn't do my business in any of them. I am unable to "relax" in any bathroom but my own, I have an iron bladder, it helps to have been an ER nurse for over 12 years, cause sometimes it's forever before I get to go.
There were some pretty icky pictures.

Ginger said...

Pretty funny bathrooms and I could pee in all of them, cuz when I gotta go, I gotta go now!!! lol

Quirkyloon said...

Oh my gawsh! You are so freakin' hilarious GF!

I loved these posts. I don't think I could pee in any of these bathrooms. The sky one and ski one? I'm afraid of heights! heh heh

BUT (pun intended), I might not be able to pee in any of these, but I could definitely poop in all of them!

Ha!

Was that TMI? heh heh

Tracey said...

LOL! I don't know where you find this stuff.....and no way would I use that last one!

salmagundi said...

I need more toilet paper roll holders! Think of the time I could save by putting new rolls on just once a month. Funny post!! Sally

Joyce said...

Super fun post. Still laughing!
Joyce

Happy To Be said...

Nikki I could not use the last one at all..I mean how do I know they can't see me?? great post girl as always...hope you had a wonderful Easter...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Becky said...

Thanks Nikki for showing us all the thrones in life! LOL

The Blonde Duck said...

I couldn't do it! I'd have stage fright!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

I didn't read everyone else's comments so I may say something that's been said...but...can you imagine walking into that bathroom that looks like you've step off a building...and getting half way across and then looking down. Yikes! Very creative bathrooms...fun post! :-)

Jen said...

I love how perfectly this illustrates the difference between women and men. Isn't it soooo true???

Midwest Mommy said...

I am going to let you in on a little secret. When the hubs is home and I need a break I tell him I have to go to the crapper. Secretly I sneak my laptop in with me and enough the quiet time with no kids, lol.

ko said...

2 funny.....i have missed lookking at your blog!!!! :)
kyley

H.K. said...

My husband said he would never use the bathroom with the women's butts, because none of their butts look like mine. How sweet...and he's also lying.

Michael said...

I'd have to hold it, LOL. And you now know what my new bathroom fixtures will look like :o)

Cherie said...

Those are hilarious and some of them really sick!
I could NOT potty in the one way glass bathroom because if anyone came up and put their face to it they could see in! ICK!!!

Gary ("Old Dude") said...

A pervacious post if every there was one----the glass john, brings out the perv in all of us I would suspect---what a great place for a Candid Camera episode.

Sassy said...

I just have to get my dose of Nikki....you make me smile....no I take that back...you make me laugh!


When you gotta go...you gotta go...some of those would make such a normal, regular, boring thing REALLY EXCITING!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Heavens! I think I would just wet myself!

Sassy said...

Nikki...just curious...I would love to be on your sidebar..because you have soooooooooooo many followers...what do you want me to do for you??????LOL just teasing....

no I'm not...I would ♥ it!

Heather of the EO said...

I totally could. As long as I was CERTAIN no one could peek :)

These pictures are HILARIOUS. The things people think of...

John Deere Mom said...

Those pictures are crazy! I love the first one...you can never have too much toilet paper in my opinion. I definitely couldn't step into the one with the painted floor. And the "frank and beans" faucet? Crack me up!

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Love your pictures Nikki! You always come up with the most amazing things to blog about!

I could not go in the last one...bet they don't have to clean it too often! LOL

Auds at Barking Mad said...

I think that loo with the painted floor would make me dizzy. Seriously. I'm not sure I could use any of the other ones either. I'd be too busy either laughing or picking my jaw up off the floor.

wendy said...

My husband spend WAY to much time in the bathroom as it is ---he doesn't need any encouragement. The mens room with the bent over behinds at the sink --------ah, I have a comment, but I'll keep it to myself. Then the penis faucets - priceless. Wonder if I can get one in my house. HA Ha ha
THOSE WERE GOOD MY FRIEND.

Sweet Caroline said...

Okay...I am convinced that I will turn Lesbian if I ever had to use the penis faucet....

Yup. I would.

However, diggin the one-way glass potty...I would actually get to moon people without them seeing me.

Jenners said...

That first one would be great for my husband!!! And no way could I go in that last one!!! Too freaky.

Tulsi said...

I would totally skip the penis!! I have hand wipes in my purse. I don't now about the mirrored see through one. WEIRD!

BeeHappy said...

I had seen most of them except the skiing one. Love that one as I love to ski. Great post as always :)

Charli and me said...

Could not use the mirrored one. I hope you had a happy easter!

Tink said...

This is hysterical. OMGosh, I didn't know so many artistic bathrooms exist. If I had the kind of bathroom with the ladies bending over, I'd never get my husband out of the bathroom :). I had many "holes" to squat over when I lived in Europe or "thrones" to climb up to.

Rachel said...

hehehe, what a fun "theme" this is... the photos you've chosen are certainly ones i've never seen anywhere before. hehehe

I enjoyed the visit. have a great day! =)

Nana said...

Leave it to you to do an Ode to bathrooms!!

That last one freaked me out and no I would not be able to go. I would get stage fright.

Jill said...

Oh my!!!!!!!! That's about all I can say for !this one...

Carolynn said...

My bathrooms seems so boring now...

That one with the painted floor is kind of freaky. I think I'd have to be REALLY desperate to use the one-way glass facilities.

bj said...

i guess i could use that last one ok...i've laughed so hard, I've p'd my pants in public more times than i can remember!! lol
Now, that painted floor one would scare it all out of me before I could reach the potty!!

Cathy said...

I couldn't go in the last one.. no way..

Cadance said...

Those are funny! One of my favorite bathrooms in Vegas is at the Mandalay Bay....kind-a like the last one....the walls are like parchment paper material stuff...its see thru until you shut the door then a light comes on some where and people can't see in...so they say! Its pretty crazy looking!

santamaker said...

Oh....Nikki, just when I thought you were classying up your posts, there it goes to the crapper! LOL. Love ya girl!

Becky said...

I have no doubt that I could do my business seeing out. That is just a bit too creepy.

kel said...

Oh my gosh.... that painted floor is awesome! I couldn't go in there... but it's awesome!

tammy said...

Pretty sure I couldn't pee in the one-way glass public potty.

And that penis faucet is just gross.

Strawberry Lane said...

Hysterical !! Loved each alarming photo!

Thanks, made my day. Now, I'll go check out our private room for possible changes.

Mammatalk said...

Glad I haven't encountered some of these potties. I get serious stage fright!

Anonymous said...

We were on vacation down in FL (Sanibel Island) my husband and I had lunch at a little place on the beach...we decided to just sit at the bar...well hubby had to use the restroom and the view over the urinals was the bar area, the waitress station was RIGHT UP CLOSE with 2 waitresses facing him..he started laughing out loud and was just thankful that he was in there alone...I'd forgotten about that until I saw the last picture in your post...wait til I show this post to hubby tonight LOL

Thanks Nikki and honest to God I think I'd use hand sanitizer before I would use photo #6..GROSS

Have a great day,
Kathy :)

Anonymous said...

One more thought imagine the person that has to scrub/clean photo # 6 how funny would it be if it started to moan !!! LOL

Kathy :)

xinex said...

Hmmm,I don't think I can go potty there. It will feel like the whole world is watching. Unusual bathrooms, enjoyed the pics, Nikki!...Christine

Picket said...

OH MY WORD!!!!! I thought Justine was the only one that could make me blush so red that I could glow in the dark..but girl..I am gonna have to start wearing blinders!!!!! lol lol You just ain't right Nikki! It ain't good for my heart to be exposed to such things & it scares my furbabies when they hear me scream like that! lol lol

trash talk said...

First time for me to visit, but I'm sure I'll be back to visit the queen sitting on her throne! Fun, fun, triple fun post.
Debbie

tam said...

HHHMM Very interesting post Nikki! LoL! Don't think I could relax and do much business in any of those bathrooms! ~Tam:D

ModernMom said...

Wow! I didn't know the good ole potty could be so interesting. And no way could I use that last one!

I am so glad that I found your blog!!! This is hilarious!

I could never, not in a million years, do my business in a see through porta potty!! Never!!!

Nikkicrumpet! You go to the "head" of the class for funniest blog today.

I was completely "bowl"ed over.

The Painted Garden said...

Goodness Niki - they say people in glass houses should not throw stones - but people in glass potties - should not . . . . .even be in there. You win the prize for the most interesting and fun potty photos.
Have a great week.
Blessings,
Erin and Bentley

Geralyn Gray said...

I always wondered how to get peeple to read my blog and leave a comment---I think you figured all that out. I saw your blog on a sidebar and had to check it out. I really needed the chuckle---thanks!!!!!!!

Beth said...

One of the advantages of being an educator is growing the iron bladder. I can hold it for hours. Days, really.

Lorri said...

great post lol

Marrdy said...

I don't think I'd be able to go potty somewhere that I could see other people trying to look in on me! Talk about a bashful bladder. That would do it.

Natasha said...

thnak you for such a great laugh. My favorite is the painted bathroom floor. I think I would get vertigo,I love the guy free falling LOL
Natasha

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Those bathrooms are insane! But cool... ;)

Amy @ Milk Breath and Margaritas said...

These are amazing! I love the last two - but I'm not sure I could go potty in that one way glass one. That would just feel so incredibly weird!

StampinMom said...

Oh my, those are great! Love those sinks, tee hee! And no, don't think I could potty there...so wierd. And the one of the ceiling is kind of creepy.

Jamie :-)

kathy said...

OMGoodness! That is hilarious! I am totally showing this to my mom and husband - I love the Japanese one. This is just so creative!

Scrap for Joy said...

We're getting ready to redo 2 bathrooms in our house. I don't think I'll be using these ideas (although the painted ceiling one really!! cracked me up!) but I loved the laugh! You are the best!

carma said...

I'm also a fine toilet appreciator! My son returned from spending Spring break at my parents' house and proclaimed that he would need to get used to our toilets again after using the creme de la creme powerhouse toilet at their house.

Great post :-)

Jenny said...

Those are hilarious!

tiburon said...

A-maz-ing!

That faucet grosses me out though.

At least it doesn't dispense lotion.

Rainy Day Farm said...

I am horrified by that glass bathroom. I know I could NOT go to the bathroom in there, just in case! Thanks for sharing, I needed a good laugh this week.
P.S. Get out and read those twilight book, they are strangely addicting!
