Poo textured toilet bowl

Extending the "dirt-hiding countertop" concept

If you like the idea of hiding dirt by disguising it with your countertop pattern, why not make a toilet the same way? Instead of glaring white gloss glaze, imagine a natural-patina semigloss mottled glaze, earthtone, in streaky patterns? A quick browse in any artisan fair will find you a ceramic artist making bowls with a shit- streaked kind of pattern.

The benefits are significant. What could be better than sitting down and letting rip knowing you can do your worst and no one will see the difference? How generous to houseguests who don't have to worry about reaching in and wiping skidmarks off the bowl by hand. Great for loflow toilets that don't quite get the job done.

If you find this disgusting, as I do, join me in crusading for the inverse: dirt revealing countertops. See separate idea post.

       I'm pretty sure that when he said texture he meant it. I'm not going to pay for a crap texture and settle for a mere graphical pattern! And I want an air conditioner with an authentic smell too.

       soft oily rubber would be better than ceramic

       yes I am a CG guy - I confess. I did mean a smooth glazed ceramic surface ... Where the glaze looks like poo, but doesn't actually entrap bits of poo. Yechhhh. I'm concerned about the buns on this idea! Justify yourselves, poolovers! :)   

       Also: Is it proper halfbakery ettiquette to correct ones spelling and delete a comment that is spelling-only content, or is that akin to erasing evidence or rude?

       If the comment was only a spelling correction, then I think you're OK to wipe it. Then wash your hands. Welcome, by the way. Oh, hang on, I see you've been here since July. Well, welcome anyway.

       would it be improper Halfbakery etiquette to [marked-for-deletion] grossout humor on a newbie? It was done to me so I'll take out my pain on youbie.

       Unless this is carved out of that mystical and odor eliminating Himalayan salt crystal, I think there will be a remaining indicator that the bowl is indeed unclean.

       Not at all, [ss]. See [Bad Jim], Sep 15 2009
