Okay, men. We need to have a talk.
I’ve been seeing some pretty weird stuff on Pinterest lately that’s aimed right at your…um…throne.
Now men, I get it. The bathroom is your sanctuary. It’s your place to get away from it all and have a little time to yourself. You didn’t really think you were fooling us when you suddenly “need” to go to the bathroom when it’s time to do the dishes or put the kids to bed, did you?
But I wonder, could these be taking it a step too far?
Pinterest Nightmare #406a: The Bathroom Gaming System
Yes. These men are playing video games…installed on the floor…of the bathroom.
Right about now the women are saying, “What in the WORLD?! I’ll never see him again!” and the men are thinking, “Why did it take so long to invent this?” and “Can we get a screen on the wall for when I’m standing?”
You know these are destined to become standard equipment everywhere. The only downside is that they could lead to actual LINES in men’s rooms across the nation. THE HORROR! They are not used to that, the poor dears. It could get ugly.
But what if your woman simply forbids tearing up her imported travertine tiles to install your dream XBox or PlayStation?
Don’t worry, fellas! You still have choices!
Pinterest Nightmare #406b: The iPad Commode Caddy
This fancy toilet paper holder gives you gaming at your fingertips but the freedom from a major bathroom renovation. With this set up you can also check in on Foursquare and answer emails between rounds of The Legend of Zelda.
The only way this awesome item could be improved is if it charged your iPad while it docked (and also reminded you to get up and move around every 45 minutes so your legs get adequate circulation.)
But this next pin *really* surprised me. Although there are no men in the picture, I can *guarantee* you that this product was conceived and produced by a man.
I can even picture the scenario under which it happened….
Inventor man: Boy, that was a HUGE Gordita I had at Taco Bell today. Man, my stomach is kind of cramping. I better find a bathroom.
5 minutes later…
Inventor Man: WHOA!! I swear, I just lost at least 5 pounds!
Man friends: Next time you should weigh yourself before and after, dude!!
Pinterest Nightmare #406c: Toilet Seat Scale
Oh, Pinterest. No…just no.
