Celebrating a Crapper

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!

one national holiday, 
what would it be and why? And what is your favorite chocolate candy?

  1. National Stay Home From Work Day!!

    LOLed my way through this. And National Chocolate Day? I've been really good (ok, somewhat good) about eating healthy this week, but it just wouldn't right to avoid chocolate today!

  2. I think a few of my brain cells flushed away–pun intended. LOL

    July is National icecream month. So that's taken. But I might do a salsa verde day. I have a real addiction to that stuff. 🙂

  3. National Sleep In Day, although that one might be a little harder to celebrate!

  4. I'm still giggling over this one, Jess. Way to make our Friday a little lighter. 🙂

    Let's see…favorite national holiday? How 'bout National Shopping Day–a great de-stresser for all of us ladies.

    Fave candy? (You know I LOVE chocolate…AND coffee.) Hmmm… Godiva chocolate truffles. But those are a wee bit pricey, so Dove is a more economical choice, and pretty yummy, too.

  5. I'm entirely too excited about this post. Crap is one of my favorite things to say. I just love it.

    Hmm. Holiday–Everyone be polite day. Wonder how that would go? ;0

    And chocolate…Dove anything works for me.

    And I love Tofifay (do you remember those??). Not sure if they still exist even, but yyuuuummmmmm.

  7. Hahaha, I had no idea! Hilarious! Thanks for the Friday giggles, Girlfriend. 🙂

  8. There should be a day to honor the single dads out there. And a day to commemorate the large number of Chinese restaurants we have to choose from.

    I like peanut M&M's.

  9. I think it's gross that "chocolate" and "crapper" must be celebrated on the same day. I mean, a snickers bar kind of looks like a…

  10. Happy Crapper Day! LOL!

    I love anything dark chocolate – seemed appropriate for Crapper Day.

  11. HAHA, too funny!

    I'm all for National Sleep In Day. 🙂

    I think my favorite chocolate candy is recess peanut butter cups. The chocolate and the peanut butter is something I can't resist.
