Ready, Set, Flush!

On almost any warm weekend, you can drive through a suburban neighborhood and find at least one blowup bouncy castle, waterslide, pony (with clown), and all types of other entertainment devices rented by parents for their kid’s birthdays. Out of curiousity, I wanted to see how much moolah these parents were dropping so Sally’s birthday would be better than Johnny’s down the street (turns out it’s about $300).

While browsing the surprising vast assortment of bouncy castles, slides, and obstacle courses available on the web, I ran across the following product for rent (this was listed alongside the “Mini Moon Bounce” and “Lil Squirt Water Slide”):
Toilet Seat Racers

This must be a joke, right? Does someone actually produce a cross between a go-cart and a toilet? I had to find out … and the answer is YES! Here’s a video of the toilet seat racers in action:

This doesn’t entirely satisfy my curiosity, there’s so many burning questions left unanswered, e.g.: Do they operate as a traditional toilet as well? What happens when you flush? Do they come with privacy options, or do you have to drive to your nearest closet when the urge strikes?

    That picture is terrifying! I wonder how much those guys got paid? Do you think they’re real models, or just friends with the creator of the toilet seat racer? I like how how they have plenty of safety gear on.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your is witty and intelligent, very nice.

    Clearly, you are a Bad Parent. I’ll bet you’re the ONLY parent on the block who is still trying to “entertain” the kids with the traditional cakes, candies, pinatas, and assorted party favors.

    Step up to the plate, already! Strap on a helmet and get ye on a (motor-powered) toilet!

    (I’m sure Harvard has noticed. And I’m sure that your kids have been black-listed.)

    But who am I to comment? Live with your own SHAME…

    I would totally rent those toliets for racing fun. I like the off the wall aspect and the crash helmets are not only for safety… i suspect they add to the whole ‘racer’ mindset as well.

    Ha, I know a couple guys who could live on those motorized toilets. All it needs is a magazine rack.
