I dare not lie when I say today is the official holiday to celebrate Thomas Crapper. And yes, this is where we get the term, “CRAP.” A word I say often.
So I’m delighted, to be able to celebrate this day and share this crap with you!
Thomas Crapper is mostly known for inventing the modern flush toilet.
But he didn’t.
I don’t know much more than that, but what I do know is this:
There’s a legend that says U.S. soldiers stationed in England during WWI saw toilets that said “CRAPPER” on them and came home using that word interchangeably with “bathroom.”
But that’s just a legend. Not fact.
So Happy Crapper Day, everyone! I think in honor of this man we should all flush our toilets simultaneously at 5:00 p.m. CST! Who’s with me?
And be honest, you know you feel dumber having read this!
It’s all I got. Except I heard it’s also National Chocolate Day today too. I thought that was every day. Who knew?!
Have a great weekend!
