Roto-Rooter is Giving Away the Ultimate Toilet

It's a toilet unlike any you've ever seen.
Except maybe in your dreams.

Picture this: a luxury Kohler® toilet outfitted with a TiVo®, LCD flat screen TV, Xbox™ 360, iPod™, laptop, mini-fridge--and more.

Roto Rooter is having a sweepstakes to win this Ultimate Seat of Power - Roto-Rooter's Pimped out John.

Here's a portion of the press release:

— The average person spends 11,862 hours in the bathroom — which equals one year, four months and five days — in a lifetime. It's amazing the crapper, or as some say, "the toilet," has evolved so little since the Romans invented the latrine in 2500 B.C., with the most significant advance happening when Albert Giblin, an employee of Thomas Crapper, perfected an effective flush toilet in 1898. The days of emperors and queens have ended, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve your very own bathroom throne.

After all, what is a toilet? A private seat of power, a place to escape and experience a few stolen moments of pure solitude. It should be the most wonderful location in your home, but unfortunately, most toilets are bland and boring.

Fear not, boring toilet victims! Thanks to Roto-Rooter®, the ultimate toilet now exists. They've developed a customized, one-of-a-kind throne; a truly "Pimped out John," designed to fulfill all of your wildest bathroom dreams. But, you won't find it in stores. Only one lucky person will win this gleaming monument to personal convenience by entering Roto-Rooter's online "Pimped out John," sweepstakes. And, anyone can enter to win at

Roto-Rooter's "Pimped out John" is outfitted with every feature a modern king or queen could want in a bathroom throne, and underneath all of the trappings, is a superb Kohler® toilet. This amazing commode is fully loaded with the following "luxury enhancements":

• Philips™ 20-inch LCD TV and Star Wars DVD

• Xbox™ 360 gaming system

• Philips™ DVD player

• Gateway® EMachine™ laptop computer with fully articulated robot arm

• iPod™ with stereo docking station equipped with toilet paper dispenser

• Roto-Rooter "emergency" button

• Tivo™ recorder

• Avanti™ refrigerator with beer tap, stocked with drinks and snacks

• Magazine rack and subscriptions to Sports Illustrated, ESPN and GQ

• Bike pedal exerciser

• Cup warmer / cooler

I'm simply... speechless.

So what I wanna know is are you and/or Smiley about to have a fit to have one of your own, or is that thing just too much for even you two technoheads....?

I personally suspect Smiley is somewhere salivating over it and the reason he has been quiet this morning is he's already drawing up plans to add another bathroom onto the cabin in the mountains...
