It took 2 of us to move this out of the bathroom for this shot.:-)

I can think of better ways to support public education, which is what the Texas Lottery is supposedly doing with all those impossible-odds investments people are making.

Now, this IS a great shot! I absolutely love the idea and message...very creative,Walter, I love it! I can't believe you went through the trouble of taking the entire toilet from home just to get this picture. I suppose it was sitting in the garage? I had a hard time installing one in my bathroom so I will never ever remove it unless I have to replace it for some reason. I think your shot wins this challenge hands down!!!

That's a great way of protesting a lottery, Walter. Suits the advertisement perfectly well. I also hate seeing people seduced by such easy tricks and thus the idea of consuming without producing being supported.
Congrats!

Good work, Walter. Did you remember to replace the wax donut ring before you put the toilet back in the bathroom?

That's a fantastic idea and a well executed photo Walter! People seem to think that's a full sized toilet though, if it is, those are the largest $20 bills I have ever seen!

Thanks, all, for the very nice comments. It was fun setting up for this shot and challenge (thanks Cal and Selvin).

You are, of course, correct GoCubs. It is actually a battery-operated gag gift. Push the plunger and you hear a realistic flushing sound. A light bulb went off in my head when I saw the lottery sign and remembered the toilet.

Hope that doesn't disqualify me, since it's not the real thing. I'll only go so far to create a shot you know.

Walter, you are starting to add some real fun to this forum. I knew immediately it was not a real biffy! The handle is too large.

Expect a PM from me tomorrow. No, you're not in trouble. I have a proposition for you.
