I have used toilets of many different colours but prefer the contrast that is offered by a sparkling white bowl.

I find it is especially lovely when corn is added to the mix.

well they use to call them "johns" or something like that. Hence John being a white name. if they started to use brown or tan ones "john" would go away and in would be "tyrone" or "Jose."?

My two dollar pink toilet story

The year was 1990.
We bought this great little fixer-upper house for fifteen thousand dollars.
Sound roof - solid foundation..etc;
but yikes.

Two weeks before the closing deal date,
we found a pink toilet in good condition, at a garage sale,
for two dollars.

The first thing we tackled after being in our new home,
for less than an hour, was replacing the existing toilet.

Replacing a toilet is not complicated.
A little goop, a gasket, a few bolts, and it's done.

Before:



...you can see a glimpse of the new pink toilet to the left,
as I am ripping out multiple layers of linoleum.

There was beautiful maple flooring beneath all the crud.

white = not germ ridden, pure, virginal, ( I remember when my mum had to wear all white
nursing uniforms)

Black = someones idea of evil icky poo. ( I about lost it when I found out
that my sister in law approved of her children, associating black jelly beans,
as 'sin' in sunday school.)

in a hallway i found a lithograph that was either a copy of or a fantasy of a copy of a scene involving anonymous romans debating something or other it is hard to say. the central character in the sequence was seated atop something that looked a whole lot like the tank of a toilet, and his feet were resting on another white oval thing that looked a whole lot like the closed seat of a toilet.

what i learned from this was: (a) the toilet emerged gradually from underground. it was implicit in lots of places at different times. (b) the roman implicit toilet was made of marble and was apparently understood as a Significant Formation, probably in the way that the Monolith was understood as somehow important in 2001. we know this because the roman dude who is seated on the toilet-like marble formation is wearing a wreathe of bay leaves atop his forehead and other romans, who are not privy to the proto-toilet as space for sitting and disquisition, are not wearing wreathes of bay leaves on their foreheads. (c) there is a particular look of satisfied relief on the face of the speaker who wears the bay leaf wreathe, like a solid point has been made or like something that had been building up for a while had just been released. it's possible that there was some connection between this particular type of relief, the wearing of bay leaf wreathes and the proto-toilet. which was marble. which was white.

that is what looking for many days at this curious lithograph, which i took from its closet and hung on my bedroom wall for a long time, taught me about the Important Question of why the toilet is white.

The contrast of a basin bathed in white, in the dark, fumbling night provides a reassuring light that is reasonable & right.


Plus, if this keeps up, this thread will ironically become a shoe-in HoFer.
