Cemeteries are often a place of sadness, where people go for a funeral to mark the end of a life or to visit a dead loved one.
There are some people in the town of Millaa Millaa, Queensland, Australia, who decided that their local cemetery needs something to cheer people up, something that will make people stop and stare.
They installed a coffin-shaped toilet inside a small town’s cemetery.
Unfortunately, not everyone has a sense of humor, and some residents took offense to the coffin toilet.
A group of individuals came up with the idea of the coffin-shaped toilet after the town council said it would cost about $80,000 to build a proper restroom at the cemetery. In order to avoid the high cost, the controversial idea was born.
While some people don’t like the unusual toilet, other residents see it as art and are happy with the cemetery’s new bathroom.
Local resident Brian Norton said: “Imagine if they had a funeral there, I don’t think it’s going to go over very well, especially if people are there from out of town, they might think, ‘What sort of town is this?’"
Earlier this month, the Ananas Bar and Brasserie restaurant in Sydney, Australia, made headlines when they installed mouth shaped urinals inside the men’s bathroom.
Some women liked the idea and asked for permission to go inside to take pictures, while others were angry and offended. The store owner later removed the urinals and apologized.
