Helmsley's toilet and the Twodaloo

A pair of 19-century French gilt commodes owned by Leona Helmsley sold for nearly half a million bucks at auction. Makes sense to get rid of those. I don't think Helmsley's dog Trouble, who was left $12 million when Helmsley died, was using the toilets.

Anyway, it's very pricey for a toilet. But that's not as strange as the TwoDaLoo toilet.

What is the TwoDaLoo? Well ..

The TwoDaLoo is billed as the world's first toilet two people can use ... at the exact same time. It brings couples closer together and conserves our water supply all with one flush. The TwoDaLoo features two side-by-side toilet seats with a modest privacy wall in between.

Gee, thank goodness for the modest privacy wall. Otherwise it might be awkward.

Of course, Saturday Night Live was way ahead of the curve on this with The Love Toilet.
