GBK: Bliss in a Burger Joint

We don't know where to begin with this one, though P. G. Wodehouse's Bible paraphrase "Joy, joy, joy in the morning and joy, joy, joy in the afternoon" seems to cover the gist of it. Actually, though we wouldn't normally reach for said work of literature, Google informs us that the King James verse goes something like, "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning". And that's exactly how we feel about this toilet!
Those of you who have been following our blog for a while will know that we have a tendency to ranting and sarcasm. Today, however, the sun is shining, birds are no doubt singing in the pesticide-rich fields, and we are happy to bring you pictures of a lovely toilet!

We had lunch in Gourmet Burger Kitchen the other day. You may imagine our delight when, on opening the door to the conveniences, a motion sensor switched on the light! You may further imagine our joy at spotting two functioning mixer taps! The décor, moreover, was pleasant in every way, and we found hardly anything to complain of. This is such a rare occurrence that we found ourselves momentarily speechless.

Glory, glory, glory: functioning mixer taps!

Is it the Terminator? No, it's a brand-spanking-new, shiny hand-dryer! We still don't approve of this type of hand-dryer, however, considering it unhygienic and energy-wasting, and so the shininess won't earn this toilet any extra points.

Tasteful décor, snazzy lighting and mixer taps! Joy, joy, joy!

Woof! A super-sturdy coat-hanger!!

Nice door handle, but we don't understand the British insistence on making doors
that don't go all the way down to the floor.

What can one say except, in the words of Borat, "Jak se máš? I liiiiike!"

Covered toilet roll holder with plain white bog roll; bin not too close; nice and clean: We love it!

Shame about the air-dryer, but we're awarding an extra point for the motion sensor light, resulting in 10 points out of 17!
