You're Shittin' Me / by Courtney Mehlhaff

Just before Christmas, my dad asked me what I'd gotten my sister for a gift.  I told him she'd requested a Squatty Potty.

"A what?"

I explained that it's a plastic platform you use to prop your feet higher when you sit on the toilet, and it angles your body more correctly for easier elimination. 

"Oh," he said. 

We didn't talk about it again until I was rearranging the presents in the living room the next day. He pointed at the biggest box.

"What's in that one? Is that your sister's . . ."

I watched him search for the right answer, and I was not disappointed.

" . . . Shittin' Buddy?"

This, I think, is a far better product name, and I intend to wage an aggressive social media campaign to change it.  I can't wait to see the advertising.
