It may be too late to be one of the new seven wonders, but a southwestern Chinese city is flush with pride over a new porcelain palace that features an Egyptian facade, soothing music and more than 1,000 toilets spread over 32,290 square feet. Officials in Chongqing are preparing to submit an application to Guinness World Records to have the free four-story public bathroom listed as the world's largest. "We are spreading toilet culture. People can listen to gentle music and watch TV, " said Lu Xiaoqing, an official with the Yangrenjie -- or "Foreigners' Street" -- tourist area where the bathroom is located. Some urinals are uniquely shaped, including ones inside open crocodile mouths. Ouch!

Hahaha, no, not objectionable. Well, the colors are a little loud, but not objectionable, anyway.
