Piggy Potties -- Food for Thought

Here, finally, is a way to help Americans stop consuming so much bacon: pig toilets. Throughout parts of Asia, toilets of the basic squat variety have an ingenious chute which leads to a pen of hungry pigs. Ecologically sound in principle, this toilet cuts down on wasted toilet tissue as well as water usage. Further, there's no messy clean-up (unless you're a pig), and it saves on having to buy or grow food for the pigs. No matter how adventurous you're feeling, though, don't order that ham sandwich.
