Poop!

SINGAPORE, Feb 7 (Reuters Life!) - Think you deserve a throne? A U.S. plumbing firm has created a luxury toilet equipped with laptop computer and flat-screen TV which it plans to give away in an online sweepstake.

Ohio-based Roto-Rooter says its "Pimped Out John" is designed to "fulfil all your wildest bathroom dreams". Special features include an iPod music player and speakers, an Xbox video game console, a refrigerator filled with drinks and snacks and a cycling exercise machine.

"The bathroom is the perfect place for your very own throne. It shouldn't always be regarded as the room of last resort," said Steven Pollyea, Roto-Rooter vice president of marketing, in a press release emailed to Reuters.

"The average person spends 11,862 hours in the bathroom, which equals one year, four months and five days in a lifetime... a toilet should be the most wonderful location in your home."

Roto-Rooter spokesman Paul Abrams said the firm spent about $5,000 on parts and components to customise the toilet.

Any resident of the United States could win this "gleaming monument to personal convenience" by entering the sweepstake at the Roto-Rooter website before April 2.


You might never want to leave your bathroom again.

What they're not telling you is that you can't actually take a sh*t in the thing, because it don't flush worth a damn.

Then you have to call Roto Rooter.
