I haven’t been feeling well – I’m trying to convince myself it’s allergies – so I stayed home from work today. I thought I would use this time to do some productive work. Namely, researching ideas for my next blog post.
My extensive research usually involves Googling phrases such as “mystery toilet.” Why “mystery toilet”? Because I’m reading Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up and there was an article in there about a guy in Texas whose toilet kept producing pens. And, since Dave Barry was not making that up, I thought maybe the original article could be found on Google.
I don’t know if it’s there or not. I got sidetracked by all the toilet forums out there.
I am completely shocked by the number of people who are mystified by their toilets. I thought I was the only one. In order to weed out the mundane, I changed my search to “mysterious toilet phenomenon.”
There are a surprisingly large number of people in this country (and also in Canada) who believe ghosts flush their toilets. There are also several who think that others are flushing their toilets telekinetically by their friends. (Quick! Everyone who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand!) I wish I had friends who could flush my toilet telekinetically.
Actually, I wish I could flush my friends’ toilets telekinetically. Then I would tell them it was ghosts.
Or maybe aliens.
Yes, it’s true, I have worked very dilligently for you, my faithful readers, this morning. It was all worth it though because I found this Porta-Potty Piggy Bank.
