What a relief!

On this day, January 17th 1863, 1910: The flush toilet is patented by Thomas Crapper; he will die on the same day 47 years later.... Or so it is said. According to Dr. Andy Gibbons, historian of the International Thomas Crapper society, at least the death date is a eroneous (it should be January 27) and the invention of the flush toilet is fraught with controversy. Anyone wishing to get to the bottom of this issue should visit theplumber.com's "international toilet history" information at Thomas Crapper.

To quote the Red Baron: 'How lucky you English are to find the toilet so amusing. For us, it is a mundane and functional item. For you it is the basis of an entire culture.'
and the invention of the cock and ball , who was that ?

He was right-toilet humour defines us. The mere mention of farts, richards, squits, farmers or jimmys has us shitting ourselves.
However, I do know an American lady who seems to share this trait and even on the darkest of days can usually be lifted by a decent poo joke. ;-)
