From the Toledo Blade, we learn this:



"A cash-hungry commode has been traveling through neighborhoods around Waterville, Whitehouse, and Monclova Township for the past month, showing up on a different front lawn each morning with fake flowers sprouting from the bowl and an envelope taped to the fluorescent pink tank. Team members moved the toilet around town after dark, dropping it in yards with a sign reading 'Help Flush Out Cancer.' An envelope on the toilet gave three-part instructions for having the unsightly lawn ornament removed."



This is extortion for two reasons. One: Nobody wants a toilet on their lawn. OF COURSE people are going to pay to get it removed. Two: this toilet is a pink badge of cheapness. The longer it stays on your lawn, the cheaper your neighbors think you are. So OF COURSE people are going to pay to get it removed.



Theoretically, it's for a good cause (and they HAVE raised a whopping $800), but let there be no doubt about it: this is extortion.

I can honestly say if this toilet appeared on my lawn I would have brought it inside and then told the fundraisers I thought they took it back because I left 500 bucks in it. I'd make out a fake police report.

There are other organizations like the Cancer Society that
a.) don't test on animals
b.) don't fall for public political correctness when determining what research they do with what money they get. My gramma has lung cancer, which affects more women that both breast cancer and cervical cancer combined, but it's not cool to have or politically correct right now.

Besides, I donate a great deal of Kurt's money (haha) to charity. Really. This pisses me off. I've lost family members to cancer, but this makes me mad.

I think I'd play some prank that says "Find another way" to them.

My dogs would shred anyone who tried to put a toilet in my yard and even if they survived, my sledgehammer would turn that toilet into powder in about 1 swing. This is close to the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

I also wonder how it would be to hold the toilet hostage. I am going to Hell for thinking this.

Wayward toilets are what cherry bombs and M-80's are for!
