Even In Japan, They Think Japanese Toilets Are Amazing

One thing about working at "Wait, Wait" you may not know: The Sagal hates bathroom stories. The delightful Tony Shalhoub interview and the odd U-turn it took, for instance, were almost too much for Peter to take. Because his discomfort is our delight, at story meetings we like to submit as many bathroom-related stories as we can.

I think I'll bring up the above experiment — in which a Japanese TV show finally answers the question "what if a bidet was powered by a firehose" — at today's meeting. Two things I'd like to address: is there a reason the firemen needed to have their uniforms on, and what role does the Moose Man play?
