Toilet Sanitary Shield For Men

Florida inventor Vladimir Laurent recently received a patent for a device which he describes as a "toilet sanitary shield for male genitalia." From his patent application:

The toilet sanitary shield for male genitalia is a device that is placed in the toilet to prevent the male genitalia from touching the walls of the toilet while in use. The toilet sanitary shield for male genitalia comprises a shield, a securing device, and a ball and socket joint.

Laurent told the South Florida Business Journal, "It's a home product and it's designed for a specific need, for something that I felt was needed, personally." He also said that he's spent "between $25,000 and $30,000" on developing the product.

His patent included a line drawing (below) which illustrates his device being used. I've put a purple circle over the male dangly bit, in order to avoid any risk of offending that company which pays our web hosting bill (because that company is easily offended). You can see the unaltered patent image at the South Florida Biz Journal link above.

Through The Looking Glass

Recently a shady club owner was outed by a comedian for having a two way mirror in the ladies room. He refused to remove it when confronted so she put it on YouTube. The police are now investigating.

Wooden Head

Archeologists on a dig in Gdansk, Poland found something interesting in a 18th century toilet. A 300 year old dildo. It is constructed from leather with a wooden head. At 8 inches it seems to indicate high expectations.

Home Urinal

The latest Kickstarter weirdness is The Main Drain. It's "an adjustable urinal that attaches to your toilet." It's target market is evidently men who, for one reason or another, really don't want to lift up the toilet seat.

They're hoping to raise $50,000 to start manufacturing the Main Drain. So far they've got $1,604, with over a month to go.

Wedding ring found

Norman Dye lost his wedding ring in 2001. The entire family searched everywhere for it, unsuccessfully. Three years later Norman died, and because they still hadn't found the ring, his son slipped his own ring on his father's body in the casket (and took it back before the casket was closed).

But recently, 13 years after the ring was lost, a shiny object caught the eye of Norman's wife, Juanita, while she was in the bathroom. There was the ring, lying at the bottom of the toilet. It remains unexplained how the ring got there. Or how it could have remained there for 13 years. [The Commercial Appeal]

Porta-Potty Rocket

The Throne Thrusters is a group of Michigan-based rocket enthusiasts who have decided to attach high-powered rockets to a porta-potty and blast it thousands of feet into the air.
They're doing this in order to increase awareness of rocketry as a hobby, as well as to prove that it's possible to turn a porta-potty into a rocket. Launch is set for Nov. 22.

Check out their Facebook page for more details. [via Online Athens]

Kaiser Wilhelm Toilet Paper

I knew that it's popular to put politician's faces on toilet paper (for instance, Amazon sells Obama toilet paper as well as Mitt Romney toilet paper), but I didn't realize that these kind of novelty products were being sold even back in World War I. [via Daily Mail]
