The Mint Bar - Sheridan, Wyoming

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog, brings you a toilet from The Mint Bar in Sheridan, Wyoming. Sheridan was voted the number one Western Town in the US by True West Magazine in 2006.

Roadfood.com describes The Mint as:

"The ultimate cowboy bar, featuring a multicolored neon sign outside that shows a wrangler mid-air on a bucking bronc with neon cattle brands like sparks around the hooves. Inside, the Mint is lined entirely in cedar and gnarled pine burls, with rough-hewn log booths and shingle walls that gleam like slick leather and bear hundreds of brands. The timber walls are hung with panoramic photographs of ranch life, circa. 1941."

Sounds and is amazing. We had a terrifying but great time there. Some real tough looking cowboys hang out in this place but the bar lady took us under our wing and we came to no harm.

Unfortunately, we saw little of the wild west when we visited the toilet. In 2007, Sheridan ended up in 6th place for the same contest. We can't help but wonder if an old "Wanted: Dead or Alive" poster or even a drawing of Yosemite Sam, above this toilet might have made a difference.

The Fudge Factory - Madison, Indiana

Today, The Toilets of the World blog brings you a Valentine's Day toilet from The Fudge Factory in Madison, Indiana.

We never went into the store itself but spent a night in the bed and breakfast side. The entire room was decorated with antiques. It was as close to sleeping in a museum as we would ever like to come.

The toilet, as you can see, was decorated with old newspaper articles about the Titanic. For some reason a poster of the movie was also included.

And it is this poster that makes this a Valentines Day toilet. On this day we should all feel like Jack Dawson when he makes out with Rose DeWitt Bukater for the first time, but many of us instead end up feeling like Jack Dawson when that bitch Rose DeWitt Bukater lets him go into the ocean.

All the best, and remember, drinking by yourself is okay on Valentine's day.

The Magic Kingdom - Orlando, Florida

Today the Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from the Magic Kingdom in Orlando Florida.

It looks less magical than the team would have expected. No Mickey Mouse, no Goofy, no attempt at extending the theme into the bathroom. A clear sign of the times. 

If The Magic Kingdom doens't care about making their toilets fun, who will? Come on Disney, you can do better. Nuff said.
