Don't Stick Your Left Foot In. Keep it out.

Have you been wondering how to convince your child that the toilet's an appropriate place to deposit their bodily waste? Maybe you should provide them with a jaunty ditty (Note: sound!) that can be customized with their name! Previous potty posting on Metafilter.

Potty training is a violation of God's will.

My favorite MetaFilter potty thread is this one: Japanese Toilet Training Videos and then the Japanese Port-A-Potty prank.

Oh, man! I shoulda linked to the Japanese Toilet Training thing. The Potty Whisperer won because I remembered it name.

Its name.

Not "it name."

Christ, people pay me to write?

At the base of the toilet in the logo there's an ichthys. So is your waste passing through the Lord?

Holy Shit!

I am not one for hyperbole, but that may be the greatest song ever.

I write children's songs. I sing them for my kids. I learned to play the ukulele so that I could accompany myself. I totally and completely understand where this person was coming from when they wrote the song, and got the idea to record and share it.

Nevertheless, I can't see how playing a CD with a personalized recording of some musical theater person singing in a bathroom somewhere is going to be better than a kid's parents making up and singing their own song for potty training. Or walking. Or using a cup. Or any of the other hundreds of things you want to encourage your children to do in their first few years.

On the other hand, this would be a great gag gift. And if jonmc really wants a potty song, I'll happily rip one out on the ukulele and post it to MusicFilter. Let me know.

I was horrified by the "Gracie is a potty girl" bit. I mean, must the taunting begin at home? Is this the sort of thing you want to have your three-year-old spouting to complete strangers at Denny's? What sort of horrible, unforseen repercussions might this have?

Oh Gracie, you are so much more than just a potty girl.

jimmy don't you leave your poop here on the kitchen floor
i'll only have to pick it up and toss it out the door
this thing here in the bathroom, that's what they built it for
and when you learn to use it, i won't scold you anymore.
