Toilet Humor

Well I guess it is humorous if it isn't your toilet. From Yahoo News:

Florida man finds python in the potty
A Florida man got a rude awakening when he reportedly found a six-foot (two-meter) python in his potty, rearing its diamond-shaped head out of the toilet bowl.

Shannon Scavotto immediately grabbed his camera phone, snapped a few shots and called for help.

But the reptile expert from animal control was out of town and a snake rescue company wanted 150 dollars, so Scavotto decided to take matters into his own hands.

The St. Petersburg resident lassoed the African rock python out of the toilet, under the watchful eyes of his wife and three-year-old daughter, the St. Petersburg Times reported.

Only goes to show that privacy laws cannot cover all situations.
Update: Big day for toilets in the news. - How about a 4.8 million dollar toilet?
The Hong Kong Tourism Board took a jewelry shop off it's maps due to rude treatment of tourists and visitors. Apparently the shopkeepers salesmanship was a bit on the pushy side. I guess 5000-6000 tourists a day just wandering in to look at the solid-gold and gem-encrusted 4.8 million dollar toilet and not buying anything could be a bit frustrating. I'd probably get pushy too. Not to mention the toilet jokes all day long...
