I mean they’re not innovative enough to be called an invention right? Just an opinion though. Exhibit A: M.J.’s Moonwalk. Reply BugFanNo1million on November 16, 2012 at 12:44 pm He didn’t have a patent on the moonwalk, but on the shoes that allowed him to do the moonwalk. Reply Col Klink on April 5, 2013 at 11:51 pm The Ministry of Silly Walks offers patent assistance down the hall. No, not that door, that’s the argument clinic. Reply Owen on November 16, 2012 at 2:32 am Keep pushing for that patent! I still think you’re in with a chance: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/crazy.html I think my favourite is the fact that there are multiple patents on a “Method for exercising a cat”. Also, Bug’s “I’m having an epiphany” expression in panel 1 is perfect Reply Odai Athamneh on November 16, 2012 at 9:11 am That list is hilarious! I also like that there are patents on a cock fighting system and a system for shipping stolen cars. How did those patents ever get granted? Reply Strandvasker on November 16, 2012 at 2:50 am Yup, if Apple can patent “a rectangle with rounded corners” I see no reason why bug can’t patent his pajamas/toothbrush/on the crapper idea. Reply Rena on November 16, 2012 at 5:26 am It should be a felony to install or operate a toilet seat that doesn’t have some type of heater. Reply Spero on November 16, 2012 at 11:57 am Those… do those exist ? All my life… so empty… I think I know what I’ve been missing Reply Jeff on November 16, 2012 at 8:30 pm Yeah, but picture this: The Dudley DOO-Right heated toilet seat has worked perfectly on your toilet for years, then one night there is a short in the wiring and you sit down and…BURN YOUR BUNS (or other dangly bits for you gents out there that may want this heated seat)!!! The horror! The horror! Reply Meh on November 17, 2012 at 2:47 am Or you could just get a wooden seat, they are still the same temperature as the normal plastic/ceramic ones but they are better thermal insulators and therefore doesn’t feel as cold. Reply Thorbjørn on November 17, 2012 at 5:52 am How dare you bring logic and knowledge into this! Reply Rena on November 17, 2012 at 7:07 am I’ve used wooden seats. They were made from multiple pices and the seams pinched. x.x Reply Ol' Gui on November 16, 2012 at 10:39 am If Bug could invent a sink that swings out from the wall and sets up in front of a sitting bug, maybe that could be patented. Sit down, swing out sink, brush and spit. Wash face, raise up fold down mirror, smooth down sticky up bits. I think the Japanese have a toilet that has a heated seat and probably a back massage unit. Reply Rena on November 17, 2012 at 7:09 am The Japanese combined the sink and toilet into one – the water draining out of the sink fills the toilet tank. Reply LanceThruster on November 16, 2012 at 11:52 am The last panel makes me think of the response to Fred Phelps of the “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church fame. In combing through other abominations in Leviticus, mockers of the WBC created shirts and signs that proclaimed “GOD HATES SHRIMP!” Reply Oldskool on November 16, 2012 at 12:10 pm …with the ironic choice of linking the nationally boycotted Red Lobster with an organization just as noted for promoting intolerance. Reply JT on November 16, 2012 at 2:19 pm Last panel FTW (at least for Dr Heimlich)! Reply tdk on November 16, 2012 at 4:02 pm The heimlich family did try to copyright the name for the maneuver. Now all restaurant posters and first aid pamphlets use the term abdominal thrusts to avoid paying royalties to dr heimluch’s grandchildren. Funny they are slowly destroying their grandfathers legacy to just attempt to cash in. But any way back to the jokes. Ftw! LOL toilet jokes! Reply Saskfan on November 15, 2013 at 12:05 am Heimlich’s original research has been questioned, too. The Red Cross now teaches chest thrusts rather than abdominal thrusts, and CPR if/when the person goes unconscious. But you should all learn that when you take your own first aid/CPR class. Reply Mahnarch on November 19, 2012 at 3:52 am I have a space heater on a timer in my bathroom that comes on half an hour before I wake up. If I were to put it on a stool and point it at the toilet… hmm.. *goes into the bathroom* Reply Izzie on June 2, 2013 at 2:51 pm I hate warm toilet seats. It always means my dad was just taking a big dump. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
