GOOOOOD Morning POTTY People!
So happy to be back with you for another fantastic episode of POTTY Time with POTTYMINTS!
Let us begin this week’s blog with a question for you: Have you ever eaten from a Garbage can?
While you may think… What on earth are you talking about?!?
But according to a recent study of 2,000 UK adults conducted by South West News Service…you might be surprised by the results
So let’s waste no time, for this week’s Main Story, we review the Most Bizarre places where people have shamelessly eaten food.
Listen, we have all been in a situation at one point or another, where we are so freaking hungry it overtakes us…
Sitting in your home, asking yourself how, after completing a full meal… you are still ravenous
Or perhaps you find yourself at your friend’s dinner party…of that friend who can’t cook.
You know that friend…
The one who, after multiple close calls… is on a first name basis with the local fire department
Anyway…according to the study, 1 in 3 people admitted to bringing their own snacks over to someone else’s home in anticipation of a less-than-desirable meal being served.
…And 40% of those people eat their snack stash in secret!
The question is… where to discreetly eat these snacks… and we have to say… the results are shocking
According to the study, these were the Top 20 Places people snack in secret:
- In bed
- While driving
- On the stairs
- In the bath
- In a shed
- A public stairwell
- On the toilet
- In an elevator
- In a storage room at work
- During exercise
- In a hot tub
- In a laundry room
- In an attic
- In a swimming pool
- In a public changing room
- In a backyard playhouse
- A public toilet
- Out of a cupboard
- In a basement
- Out of a freezer at work
“A HOT TUB”... “AN ATTIC?!?!”... AND SERIOUSLY??!... #7 “ON THE TOILET?!?”
According to the study, 20% of those surveyed said they were comfortable with eating a snack in a Public Restroom… 18% percent admitted to eating while seated on the toilet.
WTF UK ADULTS?!?
Also, how do you eat while working out?
Have you ever tried to drink something while walking… it’s virtually impossible, unless you’re wearing a rain poncho!
Ask yourself… Where is the strangest place you have ever snacked?
Enough Snacks, let’s get into this week’s main course of POTTY PICKS!
With the warmer weather of spring quickly approaching… and the sun beginning to show its face… it can only mean one thing: Ice Cream
Having worked at a Gelato shop myself for a summer… I now feel compelled to use my platform of this Bathroom blog to get a point across to you…
You DON’T NEED to try “VANILLA” or “CHOCOLATE”... YOU KNOW WHAT THEY TASTE LIKE!
Now that we got that off our chest, it’s time to get into this week’s video of the week, which is about ice cream… but a specific kind of ice cream
The self-proclaimed “Ice Cream Of the Future”... Dippin Dots!
Watch this Week’s Video Of the Week:
If Dippin Dots didnt get you in the mood for this warmer weather… maybe this weeks POTTY Picks can help!
As you all know, we choose 5 songs for the week ahead and add them to our ongoing playlist we call “POTTY PICKS”
For those of you who are new here and looking for some new music… we assure you, we may be a Bathroom company… but our playlist is top notch
This week we feature music from:
- “Lightenup” - Parcels
- “How Do I Let a Good Man Down” - Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
- “Crazy Tings” - Tems
- “Electricity (with Dua Lipa)” - Silk City, Dua Lipa & Mark Ronson
- “He’s The Greatest Dancer (Dimitri from Paris Remix)” - Sister Sledge, Dimitri from Paris
Well, as if the realization that 1 in 5 people eating on the toilet wasnt enough for you this week…we have another bathroom related moment for you
We have been waiting for the right time to show you this one, and this week feels appropriate
Ladies and gentlemen… we present to you, our Bathroom Moment of the Week: the South Korean Toilet Museum also known as… Mr. Toilet House
This week, we decided to switch it up a bit
With all the craziness in the world, it’s hard to keep up with news that is actually worthy of your time…
This week, during her confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice…Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who by anyones standards is the most qualified Supreme Court Justice in US History… had to endure more than her share of “politics” this week
But as you know, we dont want to get into that kind of stuff on this blog… but if you would indulge us for just a moment.
Instead of a quote, we want to share with you one last video for this week, that we feel highlights the historic nature of this moment for our country.
Towards the end of a tense third day of Capitol Hill hearings on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Democratic Senator Cory Booker delivered a speech on racial progress that drew tears from the nominee and held the attention of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
Thank you so much for joining us this week, and we look forward to seeing you next week for another episode of POTTY Time with POTTYMINTS!
