Sim Jae Duck, affectionately known by fellow South Koreans as “Mr. Toilet,” died a few years ago, but his shitty legacy lives on.
The former mayor of the crappy town of Suwon was apparently born in a toilet—no, we don’t mean South Korea itself, although, yes, technically, South Korea is a toilet (the “Anus of Asia”) and he was technically born in South Korea—but as legend has it, his mom popped him out of her kimchee-scented twat straight into a toilet way back in 1939.
Mr. Duck went on to form the World Toilet Association (which encourages defecators worldwide to “Let’s be a toilet angel!”). Mr. Duck also wrote a book called Happy to Be With You, Toilet.
Now, to honor his feces-smeared legacy, the city of Suwon has opened what is being called “the world’s first toilet-theme park.” A toilet-shaped museum, formerly the daffy Mr. Duck’s home, houses many of the park’s attractions:
There are also sculptures along walking trails whereby shit-obsessed slopeheads can indulge their perfectly understandable doo-doo obsessions.
The city of Suwon, perhaps best known for being the home base of Samsung Electronics, also plans to open a “toilet culture center” in 2014.
South Korea—leading the world in toilet culture since, like, forever!
