The Bi-Bardon Urinal by Alex Schweder is Utterly Uncanny

What a strange concept the Bi-Bardon Urinal is. A symmetric, Siamese design, I can't help but hope that it isn't actually meant for two men to pee at once.

The Bi-Bardon Urinal seems to be more of a comment on "the history of classical and modern design," as designer Alex Schweder puts it, rather than an actual urinal to be used. As Scheder further explains, "By grafting the imagery of an anomalous body onto a white and symmetrical plumbing fixture, a boundary is crossed into the uncanny." The word 'uncanny' doesn't even cover it.
