a new way to chart weight gain & loss

Standard

We recently had another Buffet o’ Blog staff meeting at Larry’s Pizza (which seems to be one of our primary meeting places, for good reason).  One member of the R&D (Research & Development) department came up with a new niche product.  Not everyone will want this new invention, but we could see a few places buying one.

The idea is a toilet that has a scale built into the seat.  It’s not for taking your overall weight, but for telling you how many pounds you lost.  There would be a digital screen that would display this info.  It would also have a top 10 list of high scores.  This would be great for fraternity houses and certain all-you-can-eat restaurants.  (FYI, this idea came after we were all through eating, though I’m not sure if we could even be grossed out in that situation — we were quite focused on consuming large quantities of pizza.)

Another related idea would be to have scales in the chairs at all-you-can-eat restaurants, so it tracks just how many pounds of food you just ate.  I think that would prove popular, too, at certain locales.

  1. Maybe the toilet should be a speaking one, and offer advice to the sitting patrons. Maybe some crass one liners like, “Hey buddy, one at a time.” That would be hilarious.

    • Some more ‘advice’ from the toilet, based on how much weight you’ve lost recently:

      What did you eat?!?

      How ’bout a courtesy flush?

What's on your mind?
