Back in the 40s and 50s, the luxury of having indoor plumbing was truly a thing to celebrate — and not unlike today, people enjoyed their toilet humor. Today’s awesome example: This vintage toilet seat artfully painted with primping french poodles and humorous messages for the ladies and the gents. There’s even a name, Dear John Hollywood, with a copyright — maybe there are more of these out there, manufactured in some volume? Oui Oui Madame!

This toilet seat was undoubtably created for use in a vintage pink bathroom — one with an owner who didn’t take life too seriously — and one in which the throne is what makes it so wonderful.
Update: Mega thanks to reader Erik for spotting this link to an advertisement for Dear John toilet seat decals from a 1954 issue of Popular Science magazine on the blog Modern Mechanix. Looks like there were more of these folks — keep your eyes peeled!
