Flussssshhhhhh ...

Two and a half pounds of carrots. Four complete chess sets. Three pounds of gummi bears. Eighteen large hot dogs. Three and a half pounds of grapes. Twenty golf balls. This toilet is awesome.

If you try this at home with your toilet, kids, you may need the help of Toiletology to unstop the works. You should also get a basic idea of How Toilets Work before flushing a blender full of plastic letters and numbers.

You might also enjoy learning about the history of the toilet. Stump your friends at the pub with some toilet trivia. And view the toilet of tomorrow!

There's an incredible new self-cleaning toilet that is the scourge of cokeheads everywhere. And did you know you can potty-train a cat? Spellbinding.

Finally: Mr. Bean uses the toilet.

Large gummi bears? They come in sizes?

Will it flush?

That's all fine and dandy, but is it any good with big, steaming, skid-marking, corn-studded, nose-curling turds?

I call foul on their math. That wasn't 18 hot dogs or 78 numbers or letters. Me thinks there is some exaggeration going on.

Still pretty impressive.

Predictably, the denizens of the local waste treatment plant will claim this to be evidence of a higher intelligence, one whose ways we can't hope to understand.

I would only buy that if that music played every time I used it.

How do you burp it?

I mean, it is the first result if you search "toilet"...

All the prunes and raisins in the world won't make those chess sets and letters any less painful.

It's a promising start. But I need a toilet that can flush at least five complete chess sets.

What...is it used as a garbage disposal? I've never flushed any of that stuff. Let's see one good sized stonker and then I'll be impressed, ot at least a half pound baggie (yes the baggie too) of primo ganja.

...5lbs of dog food...a human head...a fully cooked turkey...another toilet!

A toilet post and no mention of the Ferguson, the King of Bowls?

It's too bad this MeFi user posted anonymously. With this toilet, her roommate would have saved $200 and had no trouble flushing a stew containing pork bones down the toilet.

Show me the toilet that can flush one single 3lb Gummi Bear, then you've got yourself a buyer.

I was going to comment about all that food going to waste, then I realized that all food goes to waste...

Oh yeah, well let's see it handle 3 kilos of Colombian, uncut and (most importantly) in the bag. Because when the Feds bust down your doors, you don't have time to break down all your product into tiny, manageable, flushable chunks.

I've always been mystified by the "golf balls" thing. Are golf balls a hard thing to flush? Does anyone's waste resemble golf balls in any way?

I'd be impressed if it could flush a 12" coil of 2" diameter rope. THAT'S the test I want to see.

sure, its 'awesome', but would you feel safe cleaning it?

Just don't let your kid get too close to it.

No toilet in the world, not even a porcelain defecatory capable of swallowing the fire-in-the-belly emissions of an Iron John can rise above the plumbing that supports it. Take the toilet from that video, which is probably hooked up to a high volume 5-inch commercial pipe with ferocious water pressure on the front-side and put it in your average home and you are going to be cleaning hot-dog soup up off your bathroom floor for sure.

I am never trick-or-treating at your house again.

Now if someone will just come to my house and chop my turds into small pieces...

Should I post videos of my toilet failing?

(In my mind's eye, I see two sewage worker's down there with their helmet-torches. One turns to the other and says "Well Louis, I've seen some weird shit it my time...")

See, this is great. Because I'll often have for lunch a baby carrot-chesspiece-gummi bear-hot dog-grape-plastic letter-golf ball salad (drenched in a piquant Ty-D-Bol dressing, but of course), and now, finally, there's a toilet that can handle my gargantuan, spiky, multihued postprandial turd.

Install one at Costco, and you've got a completely self-contained ecosystem.

I can see the real-poop analogs for the grapes, hotdogs, and gummi bears, but I really want to know what cut-rate deli I have to eat at to produce letter and golfball equivalent shit.

That's just nonsense. My grandpappy had an outhouse two-seater back in the day.

The food, I can understand, but if you're shitting sports equipment AND the alphabet, you need to see a doctor.

Wake me up when there's a toilet that can flush a whole other toilet.

An upgraded version includes a seven inch LCD television and iPod docking station.

Finally, I can put my iPod where it belongs!

Question is, can we use it to flush the financial crisis away?
