Who wouldn't be honored?

This reminds me of the ballot initiative in San Francisco three years ago to rename a sewage plants for George W. Bush.

Honorary toilets? You read that right.

So it’s come to this: Legion Arts is accepting donations for unusual naming rights at its newly renovated CSPS hall in Cedar Rapids. Here’s the latest from an e-newsletter that went out this weekend. (I’ve underlined the key paragraph for your convenience and/or delight.)

“Thanks to a $4.8 million I-JOBS grant from the state and incredibly generous support from throughout the community, we’ve not found it necessary to attract donors by offering to name various features of the building in their honor.

Until now, that is.

So here’s the deal. I think it’s safe to say that few improvements at CSPS are likely to be more appreciated than the new toilets. Now you can connect yourself to this conspicuous improvement in a tangible way, while helping Legion Arts raise some much-needed operating dollars.

All told we have six shiny new pissoirs (urinals) and 15 sparkling new commodes (toilets). We’re selling the naming rights to each one for $1,000 a pop.

Here’s your chance to honor a loved one, a colleague, a favorite artist or yourself. Use your imagination. You could join with your neighbors to salute a beloved legislator or council representative. Express your respect for a teacher or mentor. Or go in together with a couple of co-workers to surprise your boss. The possibilities are endless.
