OK, it’s kind of strange that this is my second thank you to a toilet maker in the last 3 months. But what I find even more bizarre, is that I’ve actually bought two toilets so recently. I mean, who buys more than one toilet every 20 years? It just seems like an odd purchase to be making so frequently. But that’s besides the point of this post…
What I found so very fascinating about this American Standard toilet is that as one of its important features, the company lists the pot’s ability to eliminate an entire “bucket of golf balls in a single flush.” Waaaaaaahhhhh????????? That seems like magic! Is it a dare? Can I go to the driving range and get a bucket of balls to test this claim? And if this commode can flush golf balls in a single flush, it begs the question — what will it do to your poop? Blast it into another dimension? Things like this really make me think.
Of course, I decided to Google the toilet on my iPhone while we were in Home Depot buying it and I came across what is quite possible the most amazing advertising I have ever seen (see video below). Apparently, not only will this potty flush golf balls, but it will also handle Barbie dolls, stuffed animals, toy soldiers, and various bottles of beauty products. After seeing this I wonder, who would buy anything else?
