    just heard on central news that it is 100 years since thomas crapper died , the man who promoted the toilet and my daughter said is that why they say what they do, i never knew that.

    Thomas Crapper invented the ballcock and cistern so he gave us flushing toilets, god forbid without him we'd have to cart our waste out to a communal dumping point like we do in the motorhome:Rofl1:

    Actually (old chap :Smile:) the term 'crap' was used before Crapper's invention.

    Anyway, I have a Thomas Crapper Day every day, sometimes twice a day! :Rofl1::Rofl1:
