Straight Poop: Inventors Improve Upon Toilet Plungers

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Two inventors are giving the bum’s rush to old-fashioned toilet plungers.

Jorli McLain and Wendy Robbins – the same ladies who invented the Tingler head massager – have created Toilet Trees, which disguises the toilet plunger as a plant stand.

At the base of the plunger sits a tray, and a plastic potted plant fits over the plunger’s handle. The same system also works for a toilet brush.

McLain says it was created out of need. She says “You have a plunger, you hide your plunger. Obvious problem solved.”

She says when people discover it’s not a plant, it’s really a plunger, they tell her, “Oh my god, that’s incredible! I need one.”

McLain says their company is very eco-minded. For every plunger bought, the National Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree. Their goal is to reach at least one million trees planted.
