    You know if someone had told me I’d be looking up the meaning of toilet on google today, I’d called them a liar. Just goes to show, never say never

    @MartainBlue I Remember In The Diary Of Anne Frank, She Gave Her Mom Toilet Water, Which Was Perfume lol.

  7. Jeff Hebert says:

    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.

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

  9. Danny Beaty says:

    @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!)
