Magazine Clip

in the restroom

Most public restrooms have a place to hang your coat; why not a place to hang your magazine/newspaper?

Small items can be perched atop the toilet roll dispenser, but magazines and papers are too big; you either have to put them on the floor, which is unhygienic and sometimes wet, or hold them the whole time while lowering your pants and while finishing up, which is exceedingly awkward.

A simple alligator clip, attached to the side wall by a screw, would solve the whole problem.

       I like the idea, but you just know that aligator clip will be used for something other than magazine holding.   

       I have never, in my long life, read a book, magazine or newspaper in a public restroom stall. Shocking! Just shocking!

       Well, now where's your sense of ADVENTURE, [k_sra]?

       It must be out somewhere having adventures with mine. I tend to want to minimize the amount of time I spend sitting around in public restrooms.

       On a slightly unrelated topic - isn't it odd that this is one of the few places left in the world where some bright spark hasn't thought of putting ads?   

       They have got them in gents toilets here in the UK, positioned in little frames above the urinal.

       I thought this would be a magazine magazine for rapid-fire reading.
