I think this Idea was a great one. We carry the Maximus Toilet. Which was designed for the obese person. These toilet have a 2,000 pound rating. Very good toilets.

Fat people deserve their own seats so they stop breaking the ones for everyone else.. It would also save embarrassment as their arse wouldnt get stuck in the whole!!

What a load of utter rubbish. Here is a useful invention for the overweight and you people turn this into a political manifesto? And please, let the person complaining about fat Americans not hail from any European country. That continent is as easily as slovenly as America. And to the english teacher. Please say this quietly to yourself. I am sofa king we todd did. And to the person who had their friend lose his arms and legs. Sorry to hear that. I hope he gets better. However, turning this into 'praise a soldier'? Pretty mindless. All-in-all, a great invention.

hey erin.. ? is called a question mark, not a full stop, my dear english teacher.. and as you see i use small caps because this is the internet, not a letter, so i can write with small caps or I CAN USE CAPITAL LETTERS, and put two or three periods in the end.. @richard - who the hell told your friend to go fight in another country, and do you really think that there are only wars you americans start? there are wars going on all the time, and people loose limbs all the time

The back of the toilet looks like a regular toilet though, you think they'd make it hefty or reinforce it somehow to sustain the added weight pressing back against it.

I think this is also a useful idea for the bad aim/sloppy pee guy

I am pleased you all can laugh and make fun of this. I am glad to see it. And I thank cjr for the link. Thanks to the link I was able to print the fact sheet and phone number for my friend. Yes he is obese and this will help. He lost both legs and an arm in Iraq and has since gained a lot of weight due to inactivity. This may actually let him go to the bathroom without a nurse. All you who laugh I pray that you never have to experience what this brave man has to suffer through every day. And if you ever happen to lose your limbs...lets see how much you laugh at yourself then.

WHHHOOAAA DADDY! THE FATTIES HAVE BROKEN THE PLUMBING INDUSTRY! WHHHOOAAA DADDY! I have a cocker spaniel.. I think fat people look like fat cocker spaniels. Have a nice day.

Anyways.. I'm not here to bash your spelling or anything.. because we're supposed to comment on the 'idea/pantent' not people's spelling. Anyways.. I think that's a very funny pantent.. When I saw it.. it made me laugh.. and yes.. it's very useful lol

Adam Klein | Dec 1, 2004 6:01 AM
Wait a second. Is that person pissed off at your spelling? By the way, thankyou is actually two words not one and "I seen" should read "I have seen" Learn the basics of grammar, sheesh.

Erin | Dec 1, 2004 1:01 AM
By the way, Someone. Useful is spelt using 1 L, not 2.(two). How would you know that it must be very useful? Have you done your research? Have any Obese people you know sat on it. No, I thought not. So, before you take the piss next time, make sure to take the piss using words that are spelt correctly. Also, a sentence should begin with a capital letter, what are you? Stupid? I have given stupid a capital "s" as it was written after a ?, which stands for a full stop. Talking about full stops, sentences should end with a full stop --> like this. I seen no evidence of either a capital letter or a full stop. I shall end my comment with one sentence: That being, you are stupid, learn to spell, and get somebody to teach you the basics of grammar. If you don't know what grammar means look it up in the dictionary, if you don't know what dictionary means, you are well and truly stupid. Thankyou, and goodnight.
