Workers are busy preparing to roll out the red toilet paper, so to speak, in anticipation of the upcoming awards ceremony scheduled to take place in Taipei county, Taiwan, this month.
The show will give out awards to the best toilets in the county. Reports say 180 of the 1,435 public toilets in Taipei county were nominated for awards in nine categories including the best toilets for men, ladies, travelers, as well as the most community-friendly john.
A panel of judges will announce the results later this month. The award-winning toilets will not only get a trophy but will receive anywhere from NT$5,000 to NT$15,000 ($147-443) which probably wouldn't be flushed away.
