Quite literally LOL!

And since there's no source of sewer gas to go up the sink's drain, why does it have a trap?
Hey Joe;
I think because the hydraulic genius who created this travesty has absolutely no idea what a trap does.

Under the general heading of 'Tear it out and start over'. I don't really like to use PVC for pressurized lines. One of the main reasons is that it is really hard to make it look professional. When you start inventing new geometry and try to cross over into new dimensions, it starts looking real bad, real quick.

I'd like to know where this property owner got a P-trap from that has an oulet that is at a 22-1/2 degree angle. LOL, ingenuity at it's finest....
A homeowner once said to me, that he didn't understand why he couldn't put a toilet on a platform and pipe it to a two inch floor drain.
LOL, plumbing isn't rocket science but it's so close that a non plumber has no clue how to do it correctly nor why.

The part about plumbing that so many folks overlook is the health aspect. Modern plumbing and sanitation has everything to do with increasing life spans. If one removes the hazards of water borne pathogens, the amount of microscopic livestock that thinks we are yummy drops significantly.
