Now You Can Go To A Wine Tasting Inside An Arsehole

Have you ever turned in to a massive arsehole after drinking loads of wine? Well - there's no time like the present. Wine lovers in Belgium are being offered the chance to drink wine in a hotel that is designed to look like a giant anus.

The hotel is called the CasAnus Hotel and it's pretty much what you'd imagine. A giant arsehole and a bit of lower intestine plonked in the middle of a field. The intestine houses a bar, called BarRectum - which is presumably where the wine will be served.

There is only one room in the thing - any more would be anatomically incorrect - and it was made after the idea passed through the warped mind of Dutch artist Joep Van Lieshout.

If moulded fibreglass veins are your thing, you're in for a treat. It's about as realistic as a house sized butthole can possibly be.

It was originally just a piece of art within the Verbeke Foundation Sculpture Park, but the addition of a shower, double bed, and a central heating system has turned it into a bizarre hotel.

It's no dump either. The inside is all bright white with modern looking fittings and nice things. Completely the opposite of the outside, really. I dread to think where exactly you would enter or leave the premises. We could make an educated guess but some things are best left to the imagination.

The wine tasting event will surely be an unmissable one. I mean, who in their right mind wouldn't want to go? Exactly.

The event's spokesperson, Alice Boun, said: "After 10 years of organizing 'classic' wine tastings, often very boring for both wine producers and visitors, we started thinking of different ways of experimenting with wines."

The official Facebook page (once translated from Dutch) advertises the event as: "No more suitable place to present these refined wines in Belgium than in the unique setting of the Verbeke Foundation, one of the largest private initiatives for contemporary art in Europe."

No more suitable place? Ok then. They might be right, actually. People who consider themselves wine connoisseurs tend to be up their own arsehole anyway.

It also describes it as "not your everyday winetasting" which seems a bit more accurate, to be quite honest.

Anyway, should you wish to follow through on your interest and stay at CasAnus - admit it, you do - it's actually not that pricey. It's about €120 (£107) per night to stay there.

What are you waiting for?
