Goooood Morning POTTY People!
Let’s talk about gifts…
Gifting… The Act of Putting a Dollar Amount on your Affection for another person
While on the subject… I would like to use this blog as a platform to suggest the following…
No, the thought doesn’t matter
If you did not actually purchase the gift… No, the thought does not matter
No Card… No Gift… but, it’s the thought that matters?!? Really?!?
New Rule: If you show up empty handed- you are not entitled to any birthday cake.
Now…Back to the blog…
Where were we?... Ah Yes, Gifting!
For this week’s Main Story, we go to Wrexham, Wales where we meet up with co-owners of the Wrexham Football Club… Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney
Yes… for those of you wondering… you read that correctly…
Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”, “Free Guy”…) and Rob McElhenney (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) bought a professional soccer team based in north Wales.
Not gifted… but purchased for 2 Million dollars between the pair and finalized over the pandemic
The two funny-men, are not your typical owners… clearly
This week, for McElhenney’s 40th birthday, Reynolds decided to gift him something special… on behalf of himself and their Wrexham soccer club.
You see.. Ryan Reynolds decided to gift his co-chairman… a Urinal
Not only that, but he decided to hold a small ceremony to commemorate the experience, please enjoy
We look forward to Reynold’s birthday celebration… as there appears to be an extra stall open
Enough gifting Urinals… let’s get into this week’s POTTY Picks!
As some of you know, the world recently lost beloved comedian Gilbert Godfried
Perhaps one of the most recognizable voices in history, Gilbert knew his voice was off putting and frankly… annoying
… but he would use it to his advantage
While there are many clips we could have chosen for this week,for this week’s Video of the Week we feature one of our favorites, entitled: “Gilbert Gottfried Reads 50 Shades of Grey”
For this week’s POTTY Picks, we wanted to feature some new music from some artists we absolutely love!
Whether you are sitting outside, taking in that warm weather, walking on the treadmill at your gym, or having your first bbq of the year with your friends… Trust us! Pop on the POTTY Picks Playlist!
The perfect playlist no matter what the activity!
This week, we feature 5 songs from:
- “Up All Night” - SAULT
- “Out My Mind” - Cupidon, K.ZIA, Sedric Perry
- “Lost In Paris” - Tom Misch, Goldlink
- “Skate” - Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak)
- “Juice” - Young Franco
Trust us… this one is a good one.
As the weather gets warmer, people begin to love the great outdoors again… and that can only mean one thing… hiking!
But as this section of the blog might tell you… this story isnt about hiking
You see… there was an “unidentified” female hiker walking with his/her dog in Washington’s Olympic National Forest
At one point, she stopped to use the outdoor toilet at Mt. Walker vista point
As some of you might know, the public restrooms at a national park are… let’s say it kindly… f*&king gross
Well…(*gulp*) this “unidentified” hiker, tied her dog to a tree and began using the public facilities…
When her phone fell into the toilet…
But this wasn’t any typical outdoor toilet…
This was what is known as a “vaulted toilet”- a toilet which has no water and is non-flushing… with a large container below…
… now, a rational person would think: “there goes that phone…” and eventually get a new one
But not the “unidentified” hiker… who quickly began to think of how to retrieve her phone
On a whim… she removes the toilet seat… calls her dog into the bathroom with her, takes off the dog's leash and tries to “fish” the phone out.
But wait… there's more!
After many failed attempts… she decided a different tactic…
Using the leash to support her body… lowering herself into the vault toilet like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible… seriously.
As you may have guessed… she fell head first into the toilet… into the vault
After attempting for 15-20 minutes to get herself out of the container, the woman was able to get her hands on her phone and call 911.
The Brinnon and Quilcene fire departments got the strange call and responded
They eventually made a makeshift cribbing platform tall enough for the woman to stand on and pulled her to safety.
Crews urged her to seek medical attention after her exposure to human waste, but she only wanted to leave and continue on her way to California.
Now we can only imagine what they will say at the Apple store when they inevitably ask her: “What happened to your phone?”
Thank you all again for reading this weeks blog, we truly hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy making them!

Before we go, you know we wouldn't leave you without a quote for the week ahead
This week’s quote comes from poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde:
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.”
– Oscar Wilde
