Toilet Blogging

Pinger Chris passed along this great blog entry that suggests someone start a “toilet blog”… that is, a blog posted entirely while sitting on the toilet.

I thought about it a bit and I’ve concluded that this is a brilliant idea. After all, not only is it built-in time into each day that’s spent writing, it’s a well-known fact that all the best ideas are hatched while one is on the john. The entries wouldn’t all be about, um, “current events,” because that would just be gross. But there is some sort of bizarre glee readers would take knowing that each entry was lovingly crafted with the author’s pants around his ankles.

I'm way ahead of this idea. I do all my Ping comments while on the can. Sometimes the comments of others send me there . . .

But remembering to bring the laptop with you is a real pain in the ass.

No pun intended.

well, what else is there do to while sitting there? you can only count the floor tiles or read the label on various products, like toothpaste and shaving cream?

Personally, I wouldn't want to bring my laptop to the WC.

On another toilet related topic, has any one seen this before? Perhaps this could be it's own ping.

It's in the shower for me.

On the toilet, I'm either reading or doing puzzles, which prevents other thoughts from creeping in. In the shower there is no other outlet.

I usually come up with three or four posts' worth of ideas in the shower. Only to forget them while I am drying off...

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
