I can't quite decide about this one. Up on eBay, auction number 202328668951.

I don't like it - but I can be a fickle creature so that may change.

It looks like the person who designed it really needed the toilet and it was all they could think about.
They even put 2 'toilet rolls' on the top of the cistern.

...or the designer was really miffed at the company and decided to leave them a erm, cheerio then, momento.

...or maybe their career was going down the pan. Boom boom!  ;D

Yea, I have one, and they sure do get a lot of comments from visitors!  But I agree; EVERYBODY immediately calls it a "Toilet Phone"!

Intriguing title, I coukdnt imagine what sort of phone you were talking about! At this point my first thought is that I am glad this is a current topic and not one that is several months old that I just stumbled on as a few months from now the eBay # or eBay links will go dead and we would no longer be able to satisfy our curiosity by clicking t9 get pictures.

For the record, here is a current eBay link:

And here are pictures for those of you reading this in a few months:


Thanks for adding those AE, depends which device I'm on, I can't always add photos.
