The World's Holiest Urinal Plays Handel's Messiah

As it should! When you're desperate to go, a urinal or toilet can seem like a godsend.

Rocket News 24 reports that this urinal is in the men's room at the Warehouse arcade in Saitama, Japan. When you flush it, a heavenly light shines down upon it and the Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah plays.

Yes. For years I wondered why they thought sheep were so neat.

There's also how the "have gone astray" part kinda goes musically astray as the note wavers up and down.

John - not urinal-related, but if you've ever listened to Messiah (or any similar choral music from the Baroque era, you'll be aware of how phrases are repeated (sung) over and over. I can't think of Messiah without thinking about how the phrase "We like sheep have gone astray" is reduced to "we like sheep" and repeated for several minutes.
