the war against happy butts  
So, this company called Toto Washlet comes up with this great billboard for Times Square featuring pictures of happy butts to promote their new toilet seats.



But some reverend who apparently doesn't mind having his church in Times Square over a McDonald's objects to having happy naked butts displayed above his sacred ground. And some judge grants an injunction and so... no happy butts!

As a compromise, Toto Washlet comes up with this...



Poor happy butts hidden away under a banner. Only sad butts for you now, New York City!

NOW THE GODS GREW QUITE SCARED
OF OUR STRENGTH AND DEFIANCE
AND THOR SAID,
"I'M GONNA KILL THEM ALL
WITH MY HAMMER,
LIKE I KILLED THE GIANTS."
AND ZEUS SAID, "NO,
YOU BETTER LET ME
USE MY LIGHTNING LIKE SCISSORS,
LIKE I CUT THE LEGS OFF THE WHALES
AND DINOSAURS INTO LIZARDS."

It's the company's own fault, really. Everyone knows the sight of a bare bottom that isn't on a baby will result in the total collapse of our country and make the terrorists win.

Just like Universal Health Care and same-sex marriage.

My relatives in Japan had Toto toilet seats back in the 90s. I was amazed by it-- remote controls for flushing, warming the seat, and vibrating the seat. There's even a bidet function. Oh, the technology! Happy butts, indeed!

"We recognize and respect the fact that the church and others have the right to object to this advertisement."

But not the right of the company to tell the church and others to go f**k themselves and get lives, apparently.

Man, I love Toto toilet seats. I haven't been able to sell Vogon on one of the Washlet seats, but he's agreed to consider their SoftClose seats because they're supposed to eliminate "toilet lid slam". Me, I'm just excited that it's a self-closing toilet lid.

I have a Toto washlet (the C-100 "Chloe") and it's worth every penny.

I'm glad they're marketing them a little more publicly now.
