Weird Asia News -  Nothing highlights a social awareness message like a giant Toilet-shaped House. That was the aim of Sim Jae-Duck, a member of the World Toilet Association, when he commissioned the construction of his new home, a gargantuan concrete and glass home that resembled a toilet.

Located in Suweon, south of Seoul, the strange home towers over everything else at 4,508-sq-foot and cost him 1.6 million dollars.

Sim, who is also the former Mayor of Suweon and current member of the parliament, hoped that this home would emphasize the importance of better sanitation in all countries.

“Toilets were once regarded as stinking and dirty places. Not any more. They must be treated as the sanctuary that protects human health,” was his take on the matter.

In fact, Sim has been so vocal on the clean toilet issue that, during his term in office, folks had started calling him Mayor Toilet.

What a shitty idea. This is basically an open invitation for kids to TP the house.
