Public Restroom Turned Earl of Sandwich Evokes Ew’s
If you don’t mind defecating where you eat, visit the newly opened Earl of Sandwich in Boston, MA. This prime location happens to be a renovated public restroom from the 1920′s that was operational for 50 years until it was closed in the ’70s. As if worrying about hairs in our food wasn’t enough…
Okay, so maybe we aren’t being fair, the fast food chain restored the historic building with a $750,000 renovation and all of the old, grimy poop from the last century has been removed. Not to mention the current Earl of Sandwich and part-owner of the chain is the great-great-great-great-etc. grandson of the 4th Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, who invented the sandwich. We should probably show some gratitude.
No one wants to think of all of the bare bottoms that once gloriously unloaded themselves while they wait in line for lunch, but it’s safe to say our hang-ups are largely psychological. We can give Earl of Sandwich the benefit of the doubt. That’s not to say we’re above sharing this photo, though:
