Bigger bums in Britain cause increase in large toilet seat sales
26th July 2011
The obesity epidemic in Britain is now so bad that we are being forced to splash the cash on larger sized toilet seats.  The Derby-based business “Gordon Ellis & Co”, has reported that their sales have doubled in the last two years for their expensive American imported “Big John” seats which they sell for £200.  These larger seats are 19inches wide, in comparison to a normal sized seat which is 14inces in width, and can withstand a whopping maximum weight of 60 stone. Steven Evanson, Director of Gordon Ellis & Co said: “People are getting bigger, wider, and heavier. Why shouldn’t they have a comfortable time when they go to the toilet” He further added, “We tell them, ‘your bums aren’t too big – your toilet seat isn’t big enough’.” Clearly with rapidly expanding sales, the toilet seats have been a success and one customer from Manchester is pleased with her purchase: “My husband required a little more room and was breaking many toilet seats a year – the Big John put an end to that.” As we have previously reported (, figures show that roughly half of Brits are in the “overweight” category and with one in every 11 deaths being linked to weight issues; the problem is a serious one.
