The Plunger-shell

Teddy said it was a hat, so I put it on. Now dad is saying, “where the heck’s the toilet plunger gone?” ~ Shel Silverstein

Here’s a million dollar idea. Yours free. In 2003, I opened the hall closet and saw the toilet plunger sitting on the shelf next to our bath towels. I’m not easily disgusted — but that just didn’t seem right.

So I drew up plans for an idea that could revolutionize fine bathroom design: a luxury stainless-steel plunger and plunger stand. It takes the idea of the clam-shell toilet-brush holder and applies it to the plunger. Because nothing says “I’ve arrived” like an industrial grade stainless steel plunger sitting next to the commode.

I never really got around to product naming. But I’m sure you can do better than “The Plunger-shell”. Tell you what: submit your product name ideas in the comments below. Best name submitted by December 31st, 2009 — as determined by an independent panel of judges chosen by yours truly — gets a free copy of Following Featherbottom.

So there. It’s yours. I’ve even included the detailed plans below. I hereby give you permission to go forth and get rich. Wait, somebody already did.

    The Plungerdome (and gold-plated “Beyond Plungerdome”?)
    Doodie Dome
    Bathroom Biodome
    Cupola of Crap…

    See, you're already thinking of product extensions. Gold-plated Beyond
    Thunderdome would be a HOT seller. Keeping the Mad Max theme, you could
    also create a travel-version: “Plungerdome, The Road Warrior”.

    4.5 bonus points for use of the term “Cupola”.

    I see that the plunger was named after the man that invented it, Mr. Plunger (pronounced Plun-ja with a long β€œa” at the end), so maybe this invention should be named after you? The Haussler, pronounced Haus-la… Oh, sorry, you aren’t French. So, just the Haussler?

    How about the Plunger Pit or the Plunger Pot or the Plunger Pail? Or the Crapper Cauldron or the Crapper Canister?

    Great! Plunger Pail is terrific — I would definitely buy a product called the 'Crapper Canister' but evidence suggests I'm not normal… πŸ™‚
