The CasAnus was designed by the Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout. He writes:

This house takes its shape from the human digestive system. While CasAnus is anatomically correct, the last part has been inflated to humongous size. CasAnus is made to function as a hotel, including a bed and a bathroom.

If you stayed there, you could say "This place is crap," and not necessarily mean it in a pejorative sense.

Also by van Lieshout, along similar lines, is the BarRectum (aka Asshole Bar):

The bar takes its shape from the human digestive system: starting with the tongue, continuing to the stomach, moving through the small and the large intestines and exiting through the anus. While BarRectum is anatomically correct, the last part of the large intestine has been inflated to a humongous size to hold as many drinking customers at the bar as possible. The anus itself is part of a large door that doubles as an emergency exit.

you could say "This place is crap,"

Shouldn't you say, "This place is full of crap," instead?

What kind of asshole would design a building like this? You would have to be a real turd to frequent these establishments.

So, going to the digestive system bar, one would be able to fart constantly and blame it on the bar? Hmmm...

jswolf19 -- You're right. I stand corrected!

agent j, if you are farting might want to go to the doctor and not the bar.

Is it just me, or does the CasAnus look like a refurbished trailer?

IF you stay there on your wedding night does that count as the "backdoor" aka the "No-No spot"?
