    The most bizarre; and yet scientifically plausible product ever to get a viral YouTube advertisement. The Squatty Potty

    Not sure if this counts as NSFW, but best to err on the side of caution in a public place. Weirdly gross. But also strangely amusing (in a kindergarten sort of way.) You'll never think about soft-serve ice-cream. Or Unicorns. Ever again.

    That video is hilarious. The Asian squat evacuation position is natural, very Zen-like, and brings peace to the troubled mind.

    A stool stool.

    Cool.

    Edit: got to the end of the video after I wrote the post, and saw they used the same tagline. Obviously I'm in the right business (marketing).

    I spent two years in Taiwan while growing up. Everyone did the "Taiwan squat" over the benjos (big ditches). It always seemed perfectly natural. I keep cinder blocks to each side of my pot to gain the position. My daughter got a Squatty Potty when they first came out. (Cinder blocks are cheaper.)

    Regardless, I thought the video was a cross between hilarious and completely tasteless.

    On Cheju Island, the outdoor privy usually hung over the pig pen. The old Farmer Kim would do his business and then the pigs would give him a quick tongue-cleaning before disposing of his tasty leavings.

    For some reason, Cheju is also reputed to have the best bacon in the world.

    I thought cinder blocks were used in the South for storing cars in your front yard. Learn something new everyday. :D
