Talking toilet orders German men to sit down
BERLIN (Reuters) - A German inventor who developed a gadget that berates men if they try to use the toilet standing up has sold more than 1.6 million devices, his business manager says.
German women fed up with a man with a poor aim can turn to the ghost-shaped gadget, which lurks under the toilet rim and, if the seat is lifted, declares in a stern female tone:
“Hello, what are you up to then? Put the seat back down right away, you are definitely not to pee standing up … you will make a right mess…”
Alex Benkhardt, 46, invented the “WC Ghost” and its creators are in negotiations to market it in Britain, Canada and Italy.
