HAPPY THOMAS CRAPPER DAY! 

By rockywbab

Yes its true. Today we celebrate the man behind the porcelain throne, Thomas Crapper. Though credited by many as the inventor of the flush toilet, Crapper was not. He was a shrewd businessman, salesman and self-publicist. In a time when bathroom fixtures were barely spoken of, he heavily promoted sanitary plumbing and pioneered the concept of the bathroom fittings showroom. I wonder what people said before he came around when they wanted others to to “cut the crap”?
