Whisper Seat

Patent awarded to Paul Bungo of Ambridge, Pennsylvania - July 20, 1971:

A principal object of the present invention is to provide a whisper seat for a toilet and which prevents sounds, made within a toilet bowl during a bowel movement, from being heard by other persons.
Another object is to provide a whisper seat which accordingly will eliminate the embarrassment to an occupant of a bath room that persons outside thereof have heard him during a bowel movement.

I can't imagine that this invention actually worked, because how would it stop the sound from coming out from between your legs?

If one finds this troubling or embarrassing, there is a device made in Japan which covers the sounds with more pleasant ones. Or you can just turn up the radio.

A really loud exhaust fan would be a better solution to this "problem."

If the legs are thick enough to close off the gaps...
