Radio commercial:

SOUND OF TOILET FLUSHING

SOUND OF CHILDREN GIGGLING

TOILET FLUSHES AGAIN

SOUND OF CHILDREN GIGGLING

MOTHER'S VOICE, CONCERNED:

"What are you kids doing in here?"

CHILDREN, IN CHORUS:

"We're scrubbing under the toilet bowl rim!"

ANNOUNCER'S IMPROBABLY CHEERY VOICE:

" The ScrubBot grips just under the lip of your toilet bowl with it's strong, springloaded arms.

The wheels on the end of those arms allow the ScrubBot to travel freely around the underside of the toilet bowl rim.

Everytime you flush the toilet, the water runs over the impeller, powering the wheels and propelling the ScrubBot methodically around the underside of the lip.

The impeller gearing also turns little scrub brushes which keep those unsightly stains from accumulating where you don't like to look and don't want to scrub."

MOTHER'S VOICE, AMUSED:

"You kids come on out of there - ScrubBot can handle it"

Toilet Cleaner (Wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia...wiki/Toilet_cleaner
This is actually only marginally related, but it was so goofy, I had to share it. (A tenet of good technical writing: Never assume your readers know anything.) [Ander, Jun 01 2007]

       "Tommy, Bobby, Jack...Do you want to tell my why there is pee all over the toilet?"   

       "Mom, we're having ScrubBot time trials!"

       I loved the original UK series of those shows. The USA followups lacked something in comparison.

       Who will scrub ScrubBot?

       It's flushable.   

       Hmmm, good point. How to handle that in an eco-friendly way? If this thing goes down and clogs the toilet, that will be the end of my customer base.   

       I guess it has to be too large, with it's spring-loaded arms fully extended, to go down the drain.
