Flush in the pan: Toilet humor all the rage at Taiwan restaurants

For some of you, the story of Taiwan’s Modern Toilet Restaurant may be old news, but I’m still convinced it’s one of those wacky internet fake-jobs, because this link to Time.com, sent via Eater Joel Marcus, couldn’t possibly be for real. Could it? Uh, yuh:

I have no doubt this is the kind of restaurant my 10-year-old son would be slapping his knee over, and I look forward to seeing the look on his face when he comes home from school and I tell him about Modern Toilet. Call me old-fashioned (my kid always does), but I’m appalled.

So, what do you think? Is this hilarious — or horrifying?
