Potty Putter

Potty Putter

I officially have a new favorite commerical.

The Potty Putter is a small golf green that you can play while sitting on the john. I kid you not. The best part of this absurd product is that the commerical features men and women with their pants around their ankles, putting. And if you order now… get a sign to hang on the bathroom door, so others know you’re putting. And you thought your dad took a long time with the Sunday paper…

I wish I could provide you with an official Potty Putter link, but alas, I cannot. The best I can do is a mention of a similar product in a Dave Barry article and in an online store. -ram

Dave Barry and Jay Leno got a lot of mileage out of this dumb product.

I'm waiting for the potty basketball set.

The sign should say "Smacking my balls with my putter. Do not disturb." If that were the case there would be no doubt that I would have one hanging on my bathroom door.

Robert -- I hadn't heard Jay Leno mention it before... I've only seen the TV ad twice, but man is it classic.

I need to see this thing on television. In addition, I think I could use one in the "office" at work.

Ryan and I both saw it advertised on TNN during a broadcast on Monday Night Raw.
