I predict that someone will make a stupid comment about Darwin Awards and how it's too bad he didn't die.
Wait, I already did it.
(Darwin Awards!! Haha! Someone died! Their families are probably devastated AND humiliated! Hilarious!)

The subhead on this story reads: "A plumber working on a house in Frankley was trapped on Thursday by an electric toilet, whilst trying to repair it."

"Whilst?!" "WHILST?!"

Oh, I see. It's from a site in the UK. Forgiveth me.

Just when you thought it was safe to go to the bathroom. . .

What a nifty party gag! Eliminate obnoxious guests while/whilst they eliminate. - goes right along with talking toilet paper.

whilst, indeed, but it also says that he could hardly 'breath'..... i guess even the brits cant get english right. i know i shouldnt have laughed at it, but it painted an awfully funny mental image.

An electric toilet?????????

An electric toilet?????????

That's what I want to know. I can't form a visual for this at all.

I say 'whilst' and I'm American...

Why would anyone want to make a toilet electric? To keep the seat warm on cold nights? There is no part of a toilet that needs electricity!!! Don't the brits know water and electricity dont mix.

No one has yet said that Killer Toilets is a good name for a rock band.

come on folks, you're slipping.

Or is the whilst thing so much bigger?

So how much crack do you think was exposed during this incident?

'Motorised toilet' sounds like the human refuse equivalent of a garbage disposal.

I must say, the image of a toilet with moving parts that are capable of crushing a human skull is pretty strange. What the hell are the Brits eating that they need this?

And what if you hit the switch WHILST using the toilet?

Electric Toilets WBAGNFARB

I'm all in favor of isolating any electrical item that could snap my neck or crush my skull.

And as the resident Brit here, I can honestly say that Trapped Asthmatic Plumbers wbagnfarb....

Electic Toilet:

It sound like an interesing form of capital punishment.

WARNING: The Plumber General of the United States has determined that you should always unplug your toilet before working on it.
