Funny Foto Friday: Even babies need entertainment while they poo

Technology is funny.  The more advanced it becomes, the more it seems to creep into the various voids of our lives that we never knew were there.  Case in point: going poop.  In the past, while 'doing the deed' most people were content with pondering the meaning of life or at the very least reading the back of a Lysol can.  Maybe pondering why cartoon bears are the advertising medium of choice for toilet paper. But not now!

No sooner does my butt hit the (hopefully very cold and NOT warm from someone else) toilet seat, than my phone comes out.  It is amazing. I'm doing emails, tweeting, keeping up with life.... it is really multi-tasking at it's finest.

But, I think that CTA has taken it a BIT too far with their "2 in 1 iPotty".  Apparently, children have attention deficit enough that they can't be bothered to focus on peeing or pooping for thirty 2 minutes... they need to be entertained!! I assume that this kid is killing some pigs with Angry Birds or possibly just typing an email to his eTrade broker.  REALLY?  We need this device in our lives?



Finally, it has been a pretty exhausting week around the 'Boring household.  It seems that my exhaustion has spread to my son.  Either that, or he was NOT impressed with watching Pawn Stars with me last night.  He seriously sat like this for 10 minutes.  If you know my son, this would be like getting a humming bird to stop it's wings mid flight. Maybe he is still bored from when I forced him to poop without the iPad?  Happy Friday!

Seriously dad? They're buying ANOTHER antique Mickey phone?

Wait, they seriously don't have an adult version of that toilet yet? I can think of SO many that would use it...

I'm pretty sure I've tweeted and/or texted you from the toilet at some point.

I'm pretty sure I could get my daughter potty trained in less than a week if I had that.
