Graphics avoiding boring

An article about the problems with our hometown public WCs doesn't look, at first sight, as an attractive information to spend your time reading. And not many people would make a graphic out of this. But The Boston Globe made it. Javier Zarracina (a classical in Infographics News) and Joan McLaughlin bring us this graphic:

It has everything: it's funny and call my attention, now, I would read now the article. It has reporting, telling what happens during three hours at one particular public WC, and showing how it goes out of work continuously. It has, as Zarracina says, a liitle homage to NYT using circles on the map as chart. No 3d, no spectacular illos. But it works. And very good.
