‘ON THE GO’ CHARACTER INFLATABLE POTTY SEAT

 
 
 
 
BOB EIGHMIE / FOR THE HERALD

$11.95 plus shipping and handling from www.amazon.com

Suggested by Peter Metrinko of Gainesville, Va.

If you’re a parent of young children, there’s one thing you could definitely use when you take your kids out to public places: drugs.

No! Sorry! We do not mean that. What we mean is, you could definitely use this inflatable potty seat. Instead of making your child sit directly on a public toilet that has, for all you know, been used by some disgusting disease-ridden pervert or United States senator, you can simply inflate this potty seat, using your mouth, then put it on the toilet seat for your child to sit on. Then you simply deflate the potty seat and burn it, because you’re not going to want to keep it around, let alone reinflate it.

Bonus: This item can also be worn as a hat.

  • PERFECT POLLY

    You've probably seen the TV commercials for Perfect Polly, the battery-operated pretend parakeet manufactured in China from genuine plastic.

  • PRISM GLASSES

    These are special glasses that use an amazing scientific principle — possibly photosynthesis — to bend light beams at a 90-degree angle. This means that when you put these glasses on, instead of seeing what's in front of you, you're actually looking straight down.

  • CHICKEN BRASSIERE

    If you are not putting a brassiere on your hen (or self-mutilating parrot) (which would be a good name for a rock band) you could very well be contributing to its DEATH.
