  7. All of the variations come from the original French “Toilette” I believe, we Americanized it to just toilet and, being almost as poop-obsessed as we are sex-obsessed, focused on just the actual disposal device instead of the more general sense of “the process of getting ready for the day.”

    But it’s still funny as it looks to modern eyes in that ad.

  8. @Danny Beaty: And a good man never lets her chain reach that long.

  9. @Matt: Amen, brother!

  10. Which one of those painful instruments of torture is the toilet, anyway? (my money is on the antibacterial cake with the picture of Charles Manson on it!)
