It's a real world example that highlights the need for different functions to take different forms. Its really only rude if you take it as a personal attack and not a basic use example.

I wonder if he had replaced the toilet with a sink if it would have seemed less rude or not.

It would have lost a lot of the "you don't want to mix these things" vibe. Some people have used a sink to shower.

As one who has showered under a faucet -- there are definite compromises involved!

True. I guess only using what happens when a, shall we say desperate, person uses a sink as a shower would be a "safe" way to make the point. It is possible to combine the functions, but not desirable.

I see that now.
