Even ladder climbing, globe trotting, time strapped corporate executives need to stop and take a break when Mother Nature calls, right?

Not anymore. With the Gotta Go Briefcase, executives with an eye for the top don’t need to waste time tending to their bottoms:

Gotta Go Briefcase

As you can probably tell, discretion was the key objective when Niban Too Corporation of Japan invented the Gotta Go Potty. They waterproofed the containment area, double-sealed the lid, added a fold out leather privacy guard, and even included a cup holder (a diversion tactic the Japanese learned from General Motors … “Oooooh, a cup holder!”).

According to American Inventor Spot, top Japanese business execs actually see a need for this type of briefcase. Given that exceeding the maximum weight of 175 lbs may result in “rupture of waste tank” or “possible bacterial contamination of briefcase contents”, I have a feeling this won’t show up in too many American boardrooms though.

For those of you short on cash or over the weight limit for the Gotta Go Potty, I’ve developed this equally discrete method for taking care of business during an important meeting:

  1. Excuse yourself and walk to the nearest corner
  2. Pull down your pants
  3. Cover your face
  4. Yell “Na na nana na, you can’t see me” while planting your fresh potatoes

Works for my 2 year old. Thanks for the tip Michelle!

    I could have done with that when I worked in the City….

    I just borrow my boss’s briefcase.

    Ugh, heck no…

    It’s death by meetings where I work. The fact that I need to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes is the only thing that keeps me sane. I can’t imagine listening to my boss go on for more than about 15 minutes in a single stint…

    What an amazing idea. Just imagine.
    “Chan, what have you got in that briefcase.”
    “Nothing sir. Just a load of sh*t.”

    Speaking of airport screeners…. What a great way to smuggle contraband.

    But….then you either have to leave the briefcase behind, or carry it with you, all sloshy and stuff.

    The TP is loaded the wrong way, but since it’s a beta model, I guess I shouldn’t be too critical.

    What if the boss asks you to find an archive during the conference?

    What about a version with a tilt-up urinal so that guys don’t have to worry about… Good God, you sucked me in again. Nevermind.
