If it somehow managed to escape your attention, November 10 was ‘Toilet Day’. Twenty-four hours of bowl related bawdiness introduced by the Japan Toilet Association.
Whilst this year’s big day may have already been and gone, cistern specialist TOTO has marked the occasion with some celebratory toilet paper. Each roll decorated with humorous senryu – 17-syllable poems similar to haiku.
These potty related poems were collected from around 10,000 entries, with 19 of the chosen senryu appropriately describing lavatories and their usage. And any discharge devotees reading this will be pleased to hear that the unique item is available at all good bookshops, or alternatively online through TOTO’s website. Priced at a relatively reasonable 350 yen (1.75 pound) a roll.
However rather than simply using the product in the conventional manner, you might want to consider saving it. A spokesperson for the project urging buyers, “Don’t flush your love for the toilet away.”
