In The Loo

The Master plumber, Thomas Crapper,
invented something quite dapper.
His flushable, porcelain pool,
revolutionized the art of dropping stool.


*For the toilet history buffs(lol):

Sir. John Harrington was technically credited with inventing
the first flushable water closet, which he invented for Queen Elizabeth I.
But T. Crapper was given credit for inventing the modern, flushable 'Porcelain Pool'.

    Chris, If I weren't happily married, old enough to be your aunt, and too tired to even pass wind, I'd violate you! At least tap your fanny, but then again, I've heard you like that! In regards to this loo-ny piece, I used to buy my dad the Uncle John tidbit books (he loved facts and his name was John, too). He loved the books, and I think I remember reading about Mr. Crapper in one. Strange to sit on the throne and read about the throne. Saying ew yet? TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
