A rare 12th-century triple toilet seat will be going on display at a London museum later this year…

No doubt made by Thomas Crapper and Sons.

Looks like the ones we used in basic training.

I think the Germanic tribes had those, called them the poopenhousensquatin, but I could be wrong.

Useful when you've gone beyond doing number one and number two.

Thank you, I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.

The 'rare' part really only applies to the fact it is 12th Century. Plenty of multi-user seats in museums and collections all over the place, from at least the Romans thru the early 20th Century in the US and other places.

Bet there were still arguments back then about whether the leaves should go over or under on the roll… :-p

I spent some time in a barracks that had those.

No doubt used by Thomas Crapper and Sons… simultaneously.
