News websites of dubious veracity have lately posted that person in the arts district of Chongqing, China installed a swing over a traditional squat toilet. The swing was a wooden toilet seat (you can tell because of the hole in the middle) that swung from ropes suspended over the potty.
It’s the sort of invention that brings delight to the mundanity of using the toilet. Answering the call of nature becomes a game because of the added challenge of aiming and timing one’s physical movements just right.
Authorities, though, disapproved and arranged for the removal of the seat.
