Chocolate Toilet



This chocolate toilet was created by artist Art Domantay and displayed at The Project (Fall 2002 - Winter 2003). He titled it, "Sweet Ass."

But his toilet appears to be missing a toilet seat cover. Never fear. Creative Chocolates of Vermont offers a white-chocolate toilet seat cover for $15.



Note that the chocolate toilet is considered art, whereas the white-chocolate toilet seat cover is just a novelty item.

Post-Poo Drops

Available from Aesop chemists. Only for use after "vigorous activity has occurred in the bathroom." I guess that's a euphemism for 'after you've taken a large and smelly dump.'

Sega’s New ‘Toylet’ Urinal Game

The more you pee, the higher your score. So the obvious strategy is to keep drinking until you're ready to burst, and hope there isn't a line to play the game. (via pcauthority.com.au)

The Toilet Art of Adrian Rodriguez

His art involves spending a lot of time staring into toilet bowls. He calls his creations "toilygraphs."

Hygienic Equipment for Men

Since most men usually wear their pants while using urinals, I can't imagine how this would work without getting their pants wet. Bonus weirdness is the cheesy music, heavily accented narration, and use of a plastic fish as a phallic stand-in.

Last Minute Shopping?

I was originally going to display three or four of the most unique items from Archie McPhee's web store to give you an example of the true weirdness you can find there (vengeful unicorns, remote controlled hopping yodelling lederhosen, bacon bath soap, inflatable toast). But once I started digging deeper to find just the right ones, I realized there was no way I could stick to just a few. My fellow WUvians needed to see all of the zany craziness that McPhee's has to offer. And how can you resist any company whose motto is "Slightly Less Disappointing Than Other Companies". So if you're in need of a last minute gift idea for the weirdo on your list, this is the place for you.

Water-Saving Shower Curtain

Here in Southern California we're facing water shortages, so Elisabeth Buecher's shower curtain could come in handy. It helps save water because it "slowly inflates around you while you shower. It leaves you only a few minutes to take your shower before trapping you."

She calls her overall philosophy of design the "design of threat and punishment." Sounds kinky.

I have to admit that the idea of installing her shower curtain in the guest bathroom of our house, and not warning guests about it beforehand, is very tempting.

(Warning: One of the images on her page may be slightly NSFW.)

The Bicycle Shower


Combining your workout with a shower could save some time, I suppose. Though I'm not sure if that was the intended purpose of this invention. From the Chicago Tribune, Jan 18, 1903.

Wallypop Toilet Wipes

This must have been what people used back in the days before the invention of toilet paper. You just wipe and then throw the soiled cloth into a bag, ready to be taken out to the laundry. One benefit is that it allows you to wipe with a wet cloth, which gets you a lot cleaner. However, it would seem to me that it's going to substantially increase the amount of laundry you've got to do (since you want to keep the soiled wipes separate from the rest of your laundry). So would they really save you money, or be any better for the environment?

Thanks to Prof. Music for the contribution.
