Hat tip to Bronnie, who found this unappealing little item. She writes, “I happened to be on AOL while taking a study break in the wee hours of Friday morning and happened to notice this little advertising tidbit. I really hope they aren’t those stools.”

Not to get all scatological, but it does remind me of a local business I saw years ago called the SoftMove Corporation. Although Gopher at the time suggested it sounded like they made laxatives, it was actually something to do with computers.
