IV’s 8,127,002 Patent Is Amusing

Is there another issued patent with the word “poo” in it? Right on page 1 of the ‘002 Patent you’ll see:

“Buchanan, Matt: “Twitter Toilet Tweets Your Poo”; Gizmodo.com; Bearing a data of May 18, 2009; Printed on Jul. 1, 2009; pp. 1-2; located at http://gizmodo.com/5259381/twitter-toilet-tweets-your-poo”

Nice to see that IV, its patent prosecution attorney, and the USPTO have a sense of humor.

For more “poo” and “toilet” references see the ‘002 Patent at this link:
