Statistics and polls show that people can spend up to two hours on the toilet each and every week, adding up to several months of their overall lifetime’s spent sitting on the porcelain throne. It’s fascinating, and a little disconcerting, to realize just how much time we can spend using the toilet, but when you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go!
However, while your own home toilet might be nice and normal, there are some very weird toilets out there around the world! Some of them can be found in bars and cafes, while others have been spotted in people’s homes, abandoned buildings, or even out in the middle of nature. A Facebook group called Toilets With Threatening Auras regularly shares photos of freaky toilets, and here are 60 of their weirdest finds!
1) The Natural Toilet
Imagine walking through the woods one day and spotting this! Someone clearly thought that this unique tree formation looked just like a toilet, so decided to bring along some toilet paper and do their business in the open air.
2) A Leap Of Faith
You’d need a whole lot of courage to even get to this toilet, which is perched on a little platform, hovering above a huge drop!
3) Keeping An Eye
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that nobody wants to be watched while they use the bathroom, especially not by a security camera when you have no idea who is on the other end.
If you go camping, you have to accept that you might not get to use a regular restroom, but is this really necessary? Wouldn’t it be better to just find a bush out in the wilderness so you can at least have a little privacy?
5) Not Too Comfortable
This makeshift toilet doesn’t exactly scream comfort or luxury! It’s just an old chair with the seat hollowed out and some gross rags wrapped around the sides.
6) The Waiting Room
Sometimes, you have to wait in line to use a public restroom, but this one has taken the ‘public’ part to a whole new level and installed a little waiting area with seats.
7) Someone Likes Flowers
Flowers are lovely and can look nice around the home in moderation, but this is just a whole new level!
8) Well That’s Cheerful
Would you feel comfortable sitting on the toilet while this friendly guy watches over you? At least he looks pretty happy about it all.
This one is a little weird, but we have to admire the work that has been done to keep the theme going from the top of the toilet right down to the mat placed in front of it.
10) How Did That Even Happen?
This toilet had to be removed after someone lost their dentures in it. Let’s hope they put them straight in the trash!
11) Taking A Cold One
There’s nothing worse than having to use a frosty toilet seat, first thing on a cold winter’s morning, but this is one of the worst we’ve ever seen! You’d freeze your butt off just getting near this thing.
12) Why Is This Thing?
Why? Why did someone make this? Why is Donald Duck reaching out and holding the toilet bowl like that? Why would anyone ever want to use it!?
13) Play That Tune
This just seems like a real waste of beautiful musical instruments. But we do have one question: if you pee in one of those things, does it make a nice sound?
14) Don’t Look Down
We’re sure that floor has been reinforced and is totally safe to walk on, but it would be hard to really ‘relax’ on the toilet with a bottomless pit right beneath your feet.
15) Uh Oh
Looks like someone flushed this toilet too many times. The whole place is flooded!
16) A Toilet For Slender Man
Even toilet doors can feel weird and menacing! Just look at this super slim door. We have to wonder if the toilet inside is just as narrow. There wouldn’t even be enough space to turn around in there.
17) The Leaning Toilet Of Pisa
You’ve heard of the Leaning Tower, now here’s the Leaning Toilet! For some very odd reason, it seems like this toilet seat was installed at a topsy turvy angle, making it almost impossible to use.
18) Bring Your Friends
We really don’t get this one! It looks almost like a meeting room or mini movie theater with all those seats and then one little toilet, without any doors, walls, or privacy whatsoever. What goes on in this room!?
19) I See You
One of the perils of living in an apartment building is having neighbors across the way who can see right in through your windows, and this is the absolute worst possible example of that!
20) Be Very Careful
With all that delicate, frilly, white lace everywhere, you need to be super careful when using this toilet. It almost looks like the toilet is getting ready for its wedding day!
21) Optical Illusion
The floor in this toilet has been carefully painted to create an out-of-this-world optical illusion! It looks like you’re about to sink down into a black hole.
22) Is Annabelle Home?
Hoo-boy! This is a creepy one. We have no idea why anyone would want to have eerie old dolls watching them while they use the restroom, but some people are weird like that.
23) What Are You Trying To Say?
Some joker installed a microscope above this urinal, clearly insulting the ‘manhood’ of anyone who steps up to use it.
24) Who Can Use This?
There’s just no logic to this! You’d need to be 10 feet tall to comfortably sit down on a toilet so high up. And what’s with those handles on either side of it?
25) Hello There
The golden rule when designing any kind of public restroom is to ensure that the people using it have privacy. Clearly, someone didn’t get the memo when making this one.
26) Not Frosted Enough
Frosted glass is popular on bathroom windows for providing light and privacy at the same time, but this just doesn’t work! We can clearly see the poor man sitting on the toilet.
27) Eyes Everywhere
If you ever step foot in a bathroom that looks like this, run away! It was clearly designed by someone who has a few screws loose and is way too creepy to ever be used.
28) Stairs To Nowhere
This bathroom has one of the weirdest designs you’ll ever see. There’s a set of stairs just randomly cutting off, right above the toilet. It seems like you need to use the toilet and then step on top of it just to get out of there.
29) Someone Sure Loves Ralph Lauren
This one doesn’t exactly have a ‘threatening aura’ in the traditional sense, but it sure is strange! Whoever owns this home is clearly crazy about the Polo Ralph Lauren brand. They’re even willing to decorate the toilet seat with a fluffy branded cover.
30) Come Inside
This toilet has been locked away in a kind of locker or wardrobe, with lots of little doors all stacked on top of each other. You can open the doors to access the toilet, but there’s not enough space to close them and give yourself any privacy.
31) Hawkeye Is Watching
Someone thought it would be funny to install pictures of Hawkeye from The Avengers in this public restroom, showing Jeremy Renner gazing intently at you as you use the urinal.
32) A Very Narrow Space
If you have claustrophobia, be sure to stay away from this toilet! The room is so narrow, it looks like the walls are closing in and it would be pretty difficult for most people to even get in there and sit down comfortably.
Nope, nope, nope. We’re not using that. We’re not even going anywhere near that!
34) Under The Sea
It looks like Ariel and her mermaid friends must have been using this toilet. The whole thing is covered in shells. It’s a weird aesthetic, and can you imagine how uncomfortable that would be to sit on?
35) Edinburgh Surely Has More Than That
We hope the makers of this sign were just joking when they installed it right beside a urinal, but maybe they really didn’t realize just how silly it looks.
36) A Urinal For Spider-Man?
It looks like Spider-Man is the only one who can even get near this urinal, which has been positioned super high up on the wall with little climbing handholds leading up to it. We’re shivering just thinking of how unhygienic it would be to climb up there.
37) We Hope It’s Empty
We really hope nobody was inside that porta-potty while the festival crowd threw it around all over their heads. Just imagine if the door opened up and everything inside came flooding out!
38) A Lifetime’s Supply
It’s never fun when you use the toilet and then look around, slowly but surely realizing that there isn’t actually any paper left and having to make the shameful waddle across to the cabinet for more. In this bathroom, you’ll never have to worry about that.
Those are urinals! It seems like the designer tried to think outside the box and do things a little differently, but who would possibly want to put a part of their body in that hole!?
40) Be Brave
If you have an issue with heights or just don’t like the idea of pooping above what seems to be a deadly dark chasm, you’d probably want to avoid this toilet. It’s just an optical illusion, but it’s a really realistic one!
