LUCAS, Kan. (AP) _ The quirky Kansas town of Lucas is planning a daylong celebration of bathrooms.
The center of attention at the June 2 party will be a blinged-out giant toilet. The town of 407 residents is selling chances on eBay to have the first flush of the toilet.
The Wichita Eagle reports the town has spent four years constructing a massive building designed to look like a toilet. A giant toilet paper roll sits outside. The toilet's 14-foot mosaic lid is always up. Every wall is decorated and the building includes a chandelier made from the bottom of wine bottles.
The town's restroom project costs about $100,000. It grew out of conversations about the town's need for a public restroom.
