I thought toilet paper was “DIY”

Tired of that oh-so-20th century approach to post-“download” clean up: toilet paper? A Hong Kong company is circulating a piece of spam posing the musical question: “Are you still wiping with toilet paper?” Why, yes I am. Thanks for asking. For those of us Loteks still doing our own dirty work, the company promises the ultimate ablution (sorry, I couldn’t help myself). Their “Auto-Wiping DIY Ablution System” (a bidet by any other name) attaches to an existing toilet and blasts your backside with warm water after you’ve done your business. Wait, wouldn’t you still need to use TP to dry yourself off, Mr. Embarrassing Wetspot?

I guess they mean the installation is DIY (“suitable for any style stools”), but it still made me do a snickering double take. This is one piece of “lifestyle technology” I think I’ll…ah…pass.
