    "Sounds like somebody just had a blowout." I think he just took a massive dump after eating the food. There were no firearms involved.

    I thought it would be closed casket with all of the damage shown in the newspaper picture but, no, it was an open casket. You know, I'm sure they did what they could with putty and rouge to piece him back together and make him presentable but he just didn't look like himself.

    If it hadn't been for the "ring around the collar" I wouldn't have known him.

    Why are we eulogizing a rogue toilet!? Our gunman stopped major threat to our society!

    Give the guy a break. It was an accident. Why is everyone picking on him?

    This story made my day, kind of like getting a royal FLUSH on the video poker machine in Wendover.
    I wish we had more stories that made us laugh. This one was great because no one was humiliated, no one was hurt.
    The manager at the restaurant is to be commended for his ability to take this incident and use it positively.

    I thought it was a delightful story. This is one where "potty humor" is totally appropriate.

    See what happens when they install those low water usage toilets? They just don't hold up under a small piece of lead.

    This is exactly why I don't like guns, let me rephrase that, stupid people with guns. This story is pretty funny though. I like the funeral service idea.

    "eulogy" and if I have time, will attend the funeral for the decedent.
    It is refreshing to have a corporate spokeshole, be so forthright and dealing with this loss so well.
    Might be time for a "Super Star" in my very near future at that very CJs'.(almost anything is better than Arctic Circle....)

    Is it weird that I am tempted to show up to this funeral? I wonder if my boss would mind.

    I think we need more funny news like this. After reading about dads throwing their four-year-olds off bridges, parents choosing mass murder instead of unemployment and the constant reminder of how our economy is slowly slipping into oblivion, it's nice to read something light hearted.

    This is just one more example of our legislature's refusal to plan for the future. Instead of saving the huge surpluses the State had just a few years ago for tough economic times, the legislature wasted the money and/or gave back miniscule tax refunds that the taxpayers didn't even want. Giving a few dollars to each taxpayer does nothing to help the taxpayer--all it does is create exactly the kind of economic mess that the State is in now.

    Let this be a lesson to all toilets - beware of idiots with loaded guns.

    To heck with the Charmin' - at Carl's Jr. Mr. Whipple should say "Please don't squeeze the trigger".

  • Viewing???

    Hopefully there will be a viewing for those of us who spent "intimate and private moments" with John, that we might pay our last respects. And, don't forget plenty of tissue in case we need to "wipe" our eyes.

    It's good to know that concealed carry permits protect us from lurking evils like rogue toilets. This could have been tragic!.

    Thanks for the laugh. I needed that.

  • So sad....
    Jan. 28, 2009 7:34 p.m.

    ...that "John" spent his entire life in that cramped, dimly lit smelly stall. Now he'll be enclosed in an airtight box and buried underground.

    At least our crusty friend fought back (shards of porcelin shrapnel). What a total waste!

    Any truth to the rumor that the tidy bowl man will deliver the eulogy?

    We should all acknowledge this tragedy with a moment of "flushing."
