    “Bench supports up to 300 lbs.” uuuuuuhhhh, hello? Dude how big are kids these days?

    “Bench supports up to 300 lbs.”

    Why? How many toddlers can sit on it simultaneously? Is PottyBench Corp. targeting the vast population of size-XL adults looking to move on from diapers?

  3. GenXCub says:

    Is that an indictment on American diet and eating habits when a potty trainer for toddlers can support 300 pounds?

  4. Paul D says:

    Um. Maybe it’s the step stool (get it? stool?) functionality that warrants a 300 lb weight rating…

  5. GenXCub says:

    Well, that may be, but I want to know which marketing genius is targetting the demographic of people who like standing on the same implement that their kid took a dump on 5 minutes ago.

  6. Fairytale of Los Angeles says:

    I think the target demographic might be a bit older than the toddler set, whether or not the manufacturer realizes it. Now I must go wash my brain, thanks to CSI and the Internet. I’ll never be innocent again.

    I am wondering when they will come out with an adult model for public rest rooms.

    Paul D., if I may quote the Best. Satire on Small-Town Theater Productions. Ever.:

    Stools are where, once upon a time you’d find a chair / A chair’s for fools, everybody wants stools…

    Stool Boom…! / From the parlor to the pool room…!
    We’re the center of a stool boom / everyone knows our name.
