Friday Funny: World Toilet Summit - Facility Executive Magazine - Creating Intelligent Buildings

More than 300 experts recently spent three days in Belfast, Northern Ireland talking about toilets.

According to a Reuters report,

A lot was achieved, including the finalization of a protocol setting out global standards for the provision and hygiene of public toilets, says Raymond Martin, director of the Irish Toilet Association.

Another highlight was…the unveiling of Belfast’s first public UriLift toilet, a stainless steel urinal that rises hydraulically out of the ground at night to facilitate male revelers.

In terms of public toilet excellence, it was generally agreed that Singapore was a model for the rest of the world.

Martin said that with hundreds of toilet experts gathered in one place lavatorial humor was unavoidable.

“But what you actually find is that when the punning and joking is over people actually take toilets very seriously. It’s a subject that’s close to everyone’s heart.”
