Sure, your food will eventually end up in the toilet, but would you really want to sit on one while eating food out of a miniature toilet? And if you've never experienced an earthquake before, would you really think that dinnertime would be the ideal opportunity to experience a simulated version of the natural disaster? 

Apparently some people do, or else io9's list of the most bizarre themed restaurants from around the globe wouldn't be nearly so weird. From restaurants with monkey waiters to those that aspire to give you the true experience of living in a haunted prison, these bars and restaurants are mind-blowingly weird, especially when you consider that they're popular enough to actually stay in business.
