I walked past a plumbing boutique this evening, and I always like to check out the tableaux in the display windows. For instance, one window featured a wide rectangular washbasin and a squarish toilet. It's fine to be artsy in your bathroom design, but your choices in toilet seat replacements are mighty constrained if your toilet's a crazy shape. I have also seen an octagonal toilet in this store.
And now, they're selling the Great John toilet. Check out that picture. The opening in the toilet seat isn't smaller, no ma'am. It's the seat surrounding the opening that's enormous—over two feet wide, in fact. It's a shame the opening isn't jumbo-sized, too, because then you and your loved one could park butt to butt and have total togetherness when peeing. Wouldn't that be romantic?
I was surprised to learn from the website that you actually can buy the Great John outside the United States (okay, only in Ottawa, Ontario, but still, it's quintessentially American).
