Some Toilet Humour

1. "Exploding toilet leads to lawsuit"
"A man who says he was severely burned when a portable toilet exploded
 after he sat down and lit a cigarette is suing a general contractor and
 a coal company, accusing them of negligence"

2. "Residents told to batten down toilets"
"The authority is cleaning the sewerage mains with high pressure jets.
 During a similar operation about three years ago, the process caused raw
 sewage to explode out of a toilet at a house in King George Avenue
 coating the walls, floors and ceiling"

3. "Court official sues after toilet breaks under him"
"'I was sitting on the toilet bowl and the next thing you know, it exploded.
 I was on the floor, on top of a pile of broken porcelain, in a puddle of
 water and filth'... He now goes to physical therapy and a chiropractor,
 and stretches every morning for 20 minutes before going to work. 'It's a
 pain in the ass to do all this stuff,' he said"

4. "Toilet traps man's neck in Frankley"  [expired link]
"Paul Sanders was fixing a disabled toilet in Frankley on Thursday at around
 1015 BST when his leg flipped a switch causing his neck to become wedged in
 a motorised section of the device"

5. "Cop accidentally shoots man while on loo"
"An off-duty policeman's gun went off twice as he pulled down his pants to
 use the toilet, injuring a man"

6. "Restaurant uses toilet bowl theme"
"Taiwanese restaurateur Eric Wang has given new meaning to the traditional
 revellers' cry of bottoms up"

7. "Gas station bathroom offers royal touch"
"As Paul Moghadan puts it, a good toilette is good for the bottom line. A
 chandelier, faux travertine walls, silver columns and a marble counter
 adorn the bathroom at his Chevron gas station in West Covina, some 20
 miles east of Los Angeles"
