NO!!!

When going anywhere in the car I listen ALOT to XM radio, talk shows... especially Dr Laura.. yes, I admit to it!!!  AND one of her commercials for Mother's Day.. NO LESS... is for this device....  Now let me tell you, should someone happen to think to give me a squatty potty for Mother's day  I would be beyond pissed!!!  Can you really believe it?   I find it even hard to believe that it is advertised....  apparently we were made to squat to do our business and thru the centuries of sitting to do 'it' has caused us lots of discomfort and constipation.  We are made to do 'it' with our knees above our hips... really???  and they have 7" and 9" 0nes,  one would guess your feet go upon the step........ isn't this the most interesting thing?  AND  when I went to Google this stunning device,  guess what?  LOTS  of them on Amazon!!!!!
Just so you know...  yes sirree.....

LMBO........  but.... was really appalled

Take Care All and God Bless

  1. Godiva chocolates are a much more tasteful Mother's Day gift ;-)

  3. I was in Tokyo in about 1985, and was horrified when I wanted to use a public toilet. It consisted of a porcelain pipe in the ground, about flush with the ground level. No way would I go that route, but consider the Japanese are an old culture - around for way longer than we have been. I personally would be unhappy to receive the potty for any occasion, but Americans are kind of unrealistic when it comes to how much of the world lives.

  5. Can't see giving it as a MDay gift, but I can testify that the squat method with knees above the hips make doing "it" easier! That is the way of Africa and Kenya was no different.

  6. Ummm...interesting...and of course, you did know that the way to pop out babies is also a good squat? The hole in the ground toilets in Thailand didn't bother me in the least. No dirty seats to deal with.

  7. Well-I admit, I did not know such devices existed, but I have to tell you when you are out in the woods-you know- that squatting thing is kind of essential:))

  8. If you have ever been in the hospital with diverticulosis, $7,000 for two days, you would welcome a Squatty Potty. LOL Trust me on this one.

  11. UHH - no thanks!! As for squatting over a hole in the ground - did that camping when I was a kid but now if I got down, I couldn't get back up. Not a pretty picture!!

  13. On Doctor Laura?? Wonder if she got one free?? LOL. Not sure when we all stopped squatting but why does this thing have a seat if we aren't going to sit??

  14. My understanding is that this is a "footrest" type thing that you put your fee up on. You sit on your own toilet and the "gift" would only be the footrest that is placed in front of the toilet. Apparently we have all been doing it wrong. LOL

    It probably works great - think of all the constipated people who would be helped with this.

    And Dr. Laura? I used to listen to her years ago when she was first on the radio, but now I think she's MEAN. I don't know if I changed or if she changed, but I remember Dr. Joy, the shrink who used to be on talk radio and had such a nice way with people. I just can't listen to Dr. Laura. :( Obviously people love her, though, she's been on for years.
