Popular poop emoji becomes real toilet plunger?

This is so funny, I have to post this. I know my child will ask me to buy the plunger if it gets developed.

Squatty Potty, known for its development of the Squatty Potty® toilet stool, has a Kickstarter campaign in order to gauge demand for a poop emoji toilet plunger, open now through August 23. The campaign is seeking a goal of $70,000 and will run for 30 days. There are five options to choose from in the Kickstarter campaign, including a discount for the first 100 pledges. The product fulfilment will begin shipping in September 2017.

Robert Edwards, CEO and Co-founder explains, “When you use a Squatty Potty stool, you will most likely notice more of a load in the toilet. Thus, the need for a toilet plunger. In keeping with our brand humor, a poop emoji plunger was the only way to go.”

Squatty Potty, a family owned business, was founded out of necessity to relieve colon health issues which Judy Edwards, mother of seven, had suffered with for years. Squatty Potty believes the toilet plunger is a perfect companion to address the increased elimination volume which can come when using a Squatty Potty toilet stool.

You know the Squatty Potty® toilet stool. It’s the commercial with the unicorn pooping rainbow-colored soft serve ice cream. The YouTube video came out in 2015 and garnered over 130 million views to date.

Peace of mind By Diane Ako I like to reflect on life. Sometimes it’s philosophically. Sometimes it’s humorously. For all its beauty, life is far too difficult a journey to take alone. You need the support and connection with others to help carry you along the way. Writing brings me that connection– within and without. It clarifies my thoughts and feelings. It helps me reach out to others for advice, wisdom, or feedback. Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become you. A wise yogi- Patanjali- said, “Speak what is true. Speak what is pleasant.” Let’s speak of things pleasant to one another and seek some peace of mind along the way. ABOUT Diane Ako joined Hawaii: In Real Life in October 2016. She likes being part of a community of local bloggers – people who like writing and sharing, like she does. Ako is an anchor/ reporter at Island News (KITV4 – ABC) in Honolulu. She previously anchored and reported at KHON2 (FOX) and KHNL (NBC), and at stations in California, New Mexico, and Pennsylvania, In between news jobs, in 2017, she launched and ran her own p.r. company, Diane Ako PR.
