The Tears of a Clown

Now if there's a smile upon my face…

Houston, we have a problem…

Below is a picture of a public toilet in Houston, Texas. Pretty unusual to be sure, but nonetheless basically just a public convenience unusually made of mirrored glass. It’s smart and no doubt very functional and efficient (in that smart and very functional North American way).

No problem with that, nothing to see here, move on all…

Consider this view from the inside though. It’s constructed entirely from one-way glass!

How would you feel about using it?

Would you walk into it’s walls a few times trying to get in the door in the manner of a confused pigeon?

Once inside would it be strangely liberating? Like a sort of reflective rebellion?

Is this all transparently obvious, or mere toilet humour?
