A Staffordshire company called StandardToilet has designed a toilet with a seat that tilts downward, making it painful to sit on for more than a few minutes.
From StandardToilet's website:
It is estimated that in the United Kingdom alone, extended employee breaks costs industry and commerce an estimated £4 billion per annum. Moreover, medical studies have suggested that using the traditional WC can cause swollen haemorrhoids and weakening of pelvic muscles.
Our unique Patent Application, applicable UK and worldwide, offers the ability to increase business efficiency and profits through reductions in social media usage.
I hope this is a consciousness-raising joke about institutional cruelty.
