You’ve probably heard of the Squatty Potty by now, thanks to its genius Youtube video. Hilarious commercial, but does it really work? It’s something I’d love to receive as a gift, but I’d probably never buy one. That was my reasoning until I visited my cousin’s apartment and saw it neatly tucked under her toilet. That morning before I visited her, I was feeling a little bottom heavy. I knew I needed to poo, but it was one of those sit-on-the-toilet-and-push-for-30-minutes-and-maybe-a-pebble-will-fall-out kind of feeling, so I didn’t even try to go while I was at home. I went to her bathroom to take a leak, saw the Squatty Potty, and for shits ‘n giggles tried it to see how comfortable it was. I was surprised at how much stretch I had to put into the sitting squat, but I was more surprised that I felt a bowel movement a few seconds later. With a light push, my butt ejected a smooth long turd within the first minute of putting my feet on the Squatty Potty. Holy crap. This thing is amazing. Forget waiting for someone to gift this to me– I bought it as soon as I got home, and it’s being delivered today. Christmas is early for me this year.
