We all had a good laugh at the Australian teen who dropped his new iPhone on live TV, but that’s nothing compared to the ignominy of having lost it to the commode. Such an accident confirms the dirty truth we try not to think about: that everyone surfs the Web while shitting.

Damn! My iphone 6 just flushed in the toilet bowl :?

iPhone 6 more slippery than iPhone 5. Beware when texting or tweeting on the toilet seat.

Other people seem to be dropping old phones in the toilet on purpose, just so they’ll have an excuse to shell out a few hundred bucks for a newer model.
