Ladies and gentlemen, due to a complete observation of the statue that AL was sitting on when he contacted Hidan and Kakuzu, I have come to the conclusion that this giant statue is actually... Master AL's personal toilet. Let's observe shall we? Notice that the AL is sitting on the tip of the "tongue", what is under the tongue? A giant barrel, attached by a tiny cylinder tube. Under that barrel, is another cylinder that goes down into the statue's "hand", which happens to be holding a "scepter-like" pipe (which goes left into the arm). Now, according to the way an actual toilet works, we can sincerely assume that the "scepter-like" pipe is acually the cleansing mechanism that funnels out the waste, down through the "arm", and into the sewer system (the other end of the "scepter", on the right side, is where the water is stored for further use. It's looks large enough to hold a decent amount of gallons, so they wouldn't have to refill it after every use.). Of course, the AL would have to flush first, which is the chain attached to the statue's "nose-ring". When he does, the "scepter-like" pipe tilts down to the left, allowing the water and waste to flow freely into the depths of the "arm". Possibly, we can safely assume the the AL was taking one big shit. Even Kakuzu agreed, look at the warning he gave Hidan. The AL seemed pleased. For a quick run-down of the parts of Master AL's giant statue-potty, here's a list. a)Tongue: Main hole b)Nose-ring chain: Flusher c)Giant barrel under tongue (which is a tongue-ring): Waste storage system until flushed d)Scepter-like pipe: Waste removal system e)Arm: Main pipe towards sewage So there you have it. The AL possibly forced Akatsuki to build him something this grand to show-off his uber badassness. Seriously, can you think of anyone else that would have a gigantic personal shitter? Unless you think Orochimaru and a snake toilet, the AL has proved once again why he is a force to be reckoned with. Now flame this thing to hell because I know you all want to.
