Remember mood rings? Those skin-jewels that changed color, purportedly based on your mood, but in actuality based on your skin temperature? Yeah, back in the 1970’s they were a fashion trend, along with feathered hair, cowl-neck sweaters and leisure suits. I get it.
Well … apparently someone got their mitts on a couple bottles of thermal paint – the kind that changes color depending on temperature – and painted … of all things … a toilet seat.
Do I sound like I’m joking?
That’s right. If you sit on the can, the pressure of your rear end will cause the toilet seat to change color. So it’s no longer a commode, it’s a com-mood, amirite?
Okay, okay, so potty humor aside, what happens when someone claims to have made a thermal-reactive toilet seat?
Someone sells directions on manufacturing such product on their etsy site? Sure.
Someone gets one of those Squarespace websites and designs a storefront for such products? Of course.
And you get some YouTube stars who try to replicate the process. And they film it. And they put it online.
And then I find it and post it on my blog.
See, this is what I need in my life. When nature calls, I need to sit down, contemplate my existence, think about life, the universe and everything, do my best imitation of Rodan’s The Thinker … and then all is done.
And after checking to make sure everything went down the drain, I can look at the toilet seat and get some sort of biometric interpretation of what’s going through my body. Yeah. This makes total sense.
I need to get one of these. Sure.
But if you’re into this – er, butt if urine to this – why not go all out? Nothing says “mood ring toilet seat accessories” better than a toilet seat night light.
That’s right, so when you gotta go, you can go with the flow and a glow. So…
Just one thing to remember. If you’re going to use a mood ring toilet seat … whether or not it comes with a night light …
Best not to affix it to a plexiglass toilet.
