Toilet Humor

I guess the fact that I spend a good chunk of time with 4th and 5th grade boys has had an effect on me. Couple that with Darin's "Urban Legends" series, and I can't help but share the following two "toilet humor" stories.

I found this urban legend today:

While babysitting for a new family, a teenage girl went upstairs to use their toilet, not knowing they had recently varnished the toilet seat. When she tried to get up, she couldn't. She tried and tried, and began to panic. Finally, she unattached the seat and pulled her pants over it as best she could. When the family got home, she told them about the incident, and they took her to the emergency room. She was extremely embarrassed about the whole thing, especially since she'd just met this family. What made the night even worse was that the doctor that was treating her was very good looking. Fortunately, he had a sense of humor.

"Please tell me you've seen this type of thing before," the red-faced girl asked him.
"I've seen a lot of these," the doctor replied, "but never framed."

And a second story:

There was a young man who wanted to express his deep love one Valentine's Day to his then-girlfriend. Steve, in an effort to be creatively romantic, boxed up the lid of a toilet seat for Kathryn as a gift. He had rigged it with a working clock on the top cover, and when lifted, framed in the "sit-down" part was an enlarged photo of the two of them together with the caption, "Time with you is never flushed." Now, what girl wouldn't swoon over that?

Unfortunately, this second story is neither an urban legend nor a joke. It really happened. The young man, Steve, was a friend and groomsman in our wedding. What's even more amazing is that Kathryn actually married him later on! But somehow, that toilet seat has disappeared.
