Talking toilet inventor flushed with success

  1. Talking toilet inventor flushed with success


    A German inventor who developed a gadget that berates men if they try to use the toilet standing up, has sold more than 1.6 million devices, his business manager says.

    German women fed up with a man with a poor aim can turn to the ghost-shaped gadget which lurks under the toilet rim, and if the seat is lifted, declares in a stern female tone: "Hello, what are you up to then? Put the seat back down right away, you are definitely not to pee standing up... you will make a right mess".

    Alex Benkhardt, 46, invented the "WC Ghost" and its creators are in negotiations to market it in Britain, Canada and Italy.

    I read a SF story in which the toilet analyzed what was deposited into it. A voice would recommend diet changes, increased hydration, even diagnose a UTI.

    The toilet/computer would even notify the owners doctor PRN.

    (OK clever people - give us more laughs)
