Spotted in a Doane home: vintage toilet seat cover

August 31, 2013 Blog, Local Comments

Incredibly someone bought this toilet seat cover. The more astounding fact is that someone actually conceived it and put it into production.

This vintage piece of bathroom history features a poor fellow who looks much like an R. Crumb illustration, but upon deeper inspection it is likely Mr. Toilet Man is just a flattering imitation.

That, however, is just the beginning of his deep issues.

Once the toilet lid is lifted – in the open position, serious issues of the man sitting in the can come to light.

Instructions are given to clarify the upcoming situation for anyone about to settle in. The observant participant reads (punctation added for clarity:

“Don’t throw butts in this toilet. It makes them soggy and hard to light.”

“Gentlemen, stand close. it may be shorter than you think.”

“Ladies, please remain seated during the entire performance.”

It is reminiscent of the sort of article you would find in the guest bath right off the garage, or the restroom at the opposite end of a dark, dank basement.

The article is actually in good condition and could be useful again in a home, today.

If you think that should be your home, it is available at the Estate Store in Portland, Oreg.

Find it here: R. Crumb by your Bum.
