Interesting Choice of Bathroom Art

August 1st, 2011 · 11 Comments

We don’t know why the seller chose to paint or buy this particular painting or put it up in the bathroom.  Before we critique the painting, please notice the gray towel.  It’s touching the toilet tank lid.  Uh, yuk.  And why are there two shower curtains?

Let’s take a closer look at this remarkable painting.  We are flush with questions.  Her left arm appears to be crossed over her chest (we really hope that’s her left hand).  Is this painting a reminder to do your monthly self-exam?  Why is her face missing?  Can a human physically twist her head that far around?  Why are her pants down?  Is she getting ready to use the toilet?

A Cozy For Your Tushy Paper

July 31st, 2011 · 14 Comments

How cute.  A toilet paper cozy.  Keeps it warm for you.  Trouble is, you’ll have to remove the paper from the holder each time.  Which means the holder might, just might have germs on it from other people??  Yech.
