Adult Disposal Units?

I’ve been looking at pictures of buildings by the early-1900s architect Le Corbusier*, and was feeling strangely reminded of roach motels. You know – “Roaches check in – but they never check out!”

So what should come across my news feed but the latest iteration of Corbusian design – the ADU, which I think might mean “Autonomous Dwelling Unit.”

Only I couldn’t help thinking that it actually means “Adult Disposal Unit.”

You know, like “Old folks check in – but they never check out!”

Probably I’m wrong. But as a soon-to-be old person, I’m keeping a careful eye on this one.

*- here’s Le Corby’s original design for the roach motel – obviously the manufacturers cut a few corners, but they retained the spirit.
