Dora the Explorer ... Potty Topper: Protect your children (and the whole family) from germs on public toilet seats. Normal tissue seat covers tear apart, soak through, and slide off the seat. Potty Topper cleverly sticks-in-place with adhesive tabs, providing a reliable sanitary barrier between little bottoms and big germs. The oversized dimensions cover the sides of the seat too, especially where your child holds on! A soft absorbent top is super comfortable, and a plastic liner below eliminates wet seats from soaking through. You and your child will love the adorable designs.

Just Having Fun
with Toilets



Email from a friend: When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied. Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the stall. You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants! The dispenser for the modern "seat covers" (invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy, but empty. You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume "The Stance."

In this position your aging, toneless (God I should have gone to the gym!) thigh muscles begin to shake. You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet paper on it, so you hold "The Stance". To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more. You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday -the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck, that now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That will have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It's still smaller than your thumbnail.

Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work. The door hits your purse, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet. "Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the TOILET SEAT. It is wet of course. You bolt up, knowing all too well that it's too late. Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper -not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try. You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get".

By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes. The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in, too. At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat. You're e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d. You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks.

You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors, ..... so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting. You are no longer able to smile politely to them. A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (Where was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this". As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom. Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?" ...........

This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with a public restrooms (rest? you've GOT to be kidding!). It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto your purse, and hand you a tissue under the door! Send this to all women that understand what bonding in the bathroom is all about!

Legend of the Halftime Flush

Legend of the Halftime Flush

Legend has it that during halftime of football's Big Game in February, more than 350 million gallons of water flush through our toilets as an estimated 90 million Americans use their facilities. That amount of flushing equals seven minutes of water flowing over the Niagara Falls, making the day of the Big Game one of the cloggiest days of the year.

Alligator Legends

ACCORDING TO the legend, New Yorkers purchased the alligators while vacationing in Florida, intending them as cute little pets for their apartments back home. When the animals grew too large and too menacing, they were summarily flushed down the toilet and into the sewer system, where they grew even larger by feasting on rats and raw sewage. After years of breeding in this dark, sunless world, blind and albino alligators eventually were produced. From "Sewergators in the News".

"One Man's Toilet Paper is Another Man's Wages"

A recent article in Izvestia stated that Moscow clock-factory workers received 150 rolls of toilet paper as a bonus. "The article hinted that the workers felt lucky to get the toilet paper," reporter Paul Hein stated. The fact that the workers felt "lucky" says a lot about the values of toilet paper in the Soviet Union and the official currency. Here's a sample of other topics covered at Toilet Paper World.

Toilet Paper Algorithms:

Essay by Don Norman
Toilet Paper Algorithms

Although most homes have only single roll holders, most commercial establishments have long ago switched to devices that hold multiple rolls. We decided to install one, so we purchased holder of two rolls, side by side. After some self-observation and discussion, we discovered that three different algorithms were in use: large, small, and random.

toilet paper holder To use toilet paper requires thought.
Algorithm Large: Always take paper from the largest roll.
Algorithm Small: Always take paper from the smallest roll.
Algorithm Random: Don't think -- select the roll randomly.

I didn't know you had to be a computer scientist to use toilet paper. The response to Don's essay was phenomenal: 20,000 people read it on one Sunday alone. To learn Don's solution, you'll have to read the complete essay.

How are you?

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying: "Hi, how are you?" I'm not the type to start a conversation in the men's restroom; I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat embarrassed, "Doin' just fine!" And the other guy says: "So what are you up to?" What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say: "Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling!" At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. "Can I come over?" Ok, this question is just too weird for me, but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell him, "No........I'm a little busy right now!!!" Then I hear the guy say nervously... "Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions!!!"

I just received this from my broker. I don't normally pass on stock tips, but thought this explosive situation might prove to be another Enron or WoldCom. Please review any holdings you might have in the following stocks: American Can, Interstate Water, National Gas Co. and Northern Tissue Co.

Due to uncertain market conditions, we advise you to sit tight on your American Can, hold your Water, and let go of your Gas. You may be interested to know that Northern Tissue touched a new bottom today, and millions were wiped clean.

24K Royal Flush

The Royal Flush

Lam Sai-wing read about Vladimir Lenin's dream of celebrating a socialist revolution by building toilets of gold when he was a teenager in mainland China. Mr. Lam, now 45 and living in Hong Kong, has realized Lenin"s dream by building two solid-gold toilets in a bathroom gilded with 24-karat gold and encrusted with gems at his successful jewelry business, 3-D Gold. To use the $4.9-million gilded bathroom, customers must remove their shoes to avoid scuffing the gold tiles and spend $138 on Mr. Lam"s jewelry. A peek at the gold bathroom is free for the time being, but will soon cost $14.

At last, a solution to a not-so-funny problem.

A not so funny problem. Dealing with Dog Waste.

The solution to the age old problem of how to deal with dog waste in public parks and other controlled areas may be the LIPA DOG TOILET.

Since many cities throughout the world have "Pooper Scooper" laws in place and are handing out fines for people not cleaning up after their dog, the LIPA DOG TOILET should make both the dog owners as well as non-dog-owners very happy. Over 35,000 dog toilets are in use in Germany, Austria and Switzerland already! LIPA was founded in 1986 by an American citizen in Germany, but the Dog Toilet has only recently been introduced in the USA. We wish LIPA great success in helping to clean up our environment.

Wicked Restrooms

Any shopper or traveler will understand the motive behind "The Wicked Good Guide to Boston Restrooms" website. This is one of a series of Wicked Guides for Boston published by Boston Online, and it begins by saying that Boston has many wonderful things going for it. Readily visible public restrooms are not among them.

The Guide says, "Other cities put their restrooms right on the street and in the subway, where visitors and residents can actually see and use them. Not Boston. We hide our bathrooms away, taunting you, daring you to see if you've got real bladder control. Town Meeting in Concord, one of the most popular tourist sites in America, once rejected plans for a new visitor center, because it would have had restrooms - residents were afraid people from the neighboring town of Maynard would drive into Concord just to use the facilities."

For those times when you are traveling outside the Boston area, The Wicked Guide gives you links to websites that cover the facilities in other places, such as: TheAmerican Sanitary Plumbing Museum - A whole museum about bathroom fixtures, all conveniently located in Worcester!; Manhattan restrooms; Disneyland - "The Happiest Potties on Earth" includes ratings and photos.; Disneyland, Tokyo; Japanese toilets - Includes an explanation of how they're different from western toilets, and a comprehensive guide to public restrooms in Tokyo (complete with photos); Venice; Yarrawonga, Woodlands and Bundalong, Australia ; Singapore's top loos and more.

$600 Toilet Seat

There was a man who computed his taxes for 1997 and found that he owed $3407. He packaged up his payment and included this letter:

Dear IRS:

Enclosed is my 1997 Tax Return & payment. Please take note of the attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers and NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat.

Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2400) and six hammers(value $1029). This brings my total payment to $3429.00. Please note the overpayment of $22.00 and apply it to the 'Presidential Election Fund', as noted on my return. Might I suggest you send the above mentioned fund a '1.5 inch screw'. (See attached article - HUD paid $22.00 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw.)

It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year. I just saw an article about the Pentagon and 'screwdrivers'.

True Appreciation

Russell Baker, the Pulitzer Prize winning writer, described his lasting impression of indoor plumbing in his autobiography "Growing Up."

Recalling a visit as a young boy to his uncle's home in Brunswick, Maryland in the late 1920s he writes, Bookcover of Growing Up

"At the top of the stairs lay the miracle of plumbing. Shutting the door to be absolutely alone with it, I ran my fingers along the smooth enamel of the bathtub and glistening faucet handles of the sink. The white majesty of the toilet bowl, through which gallons of water could be sent rushing by the slightest touch of a silvery lever, filled me with envy. A roll of delicate paper was placed beside it. Here was luxury almost too rich to be borne by anyone whose idea of fancy toiletry was Uncle Irvey's two-hole privy and a Montgomery Ward catalog."

"After gazing upon it as long as I dared without risking interruption by a search party, I pushed the lever and savored the supreme moment when thundering waters emptied into the bowl and vanished with a mighty gurgle. It was the perfect conclusion to a trip to Brunswick."

From Growing Up by Russell Baker; published 1984.

Humor from my E-mail Box

... from Andy -Something to share.

"Some time ago, an English Lady was looking for rooms in a little village called Lortz in Germany. The local schoolmaster took her to see several delightful homes, and she eventually decided on one. On her way home however, it occurred to her that she had not noticed a W.C. She immediately wrote and asked if there was one near the house.

The schoolmaster on receiving the letter, was much troubled, for his English, being limited, he did not understand the abbreviation W.C. Finally, he asked the Parish Priest to help him, and together they tried to think what the Lady must mean by W.C. At last they came to the conclusion that the Lady meant Wesleyan Church. So the schoolmaster replied -

"Your Ladyship,

I have much pleasure in informing you that the W.C. is situated about nine miles from the house in the centre of a grove of beautiful scenery. It is capable of holding 250 people. It opens on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday of each week and as there are so many visitors in the summer months, I would advise you to go early, although there is plenty of standing room. This is an unfortunate position for you if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be glad to know that quite a number take their lunch and make a day of it, while others who cannot spare the time, travel by car and arrive just in time. I should especially recommend your Ladyship to pay a visit on Tuesday as there is an organ accompaniment. The acoustics are excellent and even the most delicate sounds are audible.

It may interest you to know that my daughter was married in our W.C. and it was there that she first met her husband. I remember the barrage quite well on the account of the rush for seats. There were ten on the seat I usually occupy and it was wonderful to watch the expressions on their faces. My father has been a regular since the day he was christened in its waters.

A wealthy resident of the district erected a bell which rings every time a member enters. A bazaar is to be held soon and the proceeds will go towards helping to furnish plush seats as every member feels that it is a long felt want. My wife is rather delicate so she cannot attend regularly, and it pains her very much not to be able to go more often. I will be delighted to reserve the very best seat for you if you advise beforehand, so you will be quite comfortable while you are there.

Yours Faithfully,
Lortz Schoolmaster.
