The New York Times reviews a public toilet — and no, it’s neither as sexy or as dirty as it sounds. Also, I can’t tell if this article is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, evidence that the Gray Lady does indeed have a sense of humor, or whether they just knew that the story would score huge coverage in the blogosphere, never remiss to pass up an easy poo joke. The world may never know.

 (Also, they had a “first flush” ceremony. I’ll never look at my beloved Darjeeling the same way again.)
