Stop My Toilet. I Challenge You! 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 

This ad for Kohler™ Class Five Flushing Technology* - seen on CNN's front page this morning - is hilarious and wrong on so many levels. Not because Jo the plumber's a woman, of course, which is a very cool thing - just the idea of a "Stop This Toilet!" challenge.

C'mon, would you be as likely to click through the ad if it was beefy old Joe the Plumber challenging you to stop his toilet? Yeah, I didn't think so.

*You know, here's an idea for a great new reality TV show: a plumber takes a contestant's old, weak, runny and clanky commode and converts it into a lean, mean flushing machine! You know, adjustable water volume, built-in warm-water cleansers, a remote control, an iPod® dock and maybe a flat-screen TV entertainment system for those...ahem...longer visits?

It'll be called...wait for it...Pimp My Can.
