[STEVE MARTIN VOICE FROM “THE JERK”] My new toilet seat is here! My new toilet seat is here! [/STEVE MARTIN]
Update: So, the new toilet seat is not as revelatory as I’d hoped. Yes, it is sufficiently odd looking to bear looking at twice and saying “hmm, strange toilet seat”. But there’s nothing beyond that. I expect it may get beaten up rather quickly — its construction is only fair, there is a design flaw (when you sit on it, there’s a pad that juts into the top of your back if you lean back; I removed this pad but that also involved removing a screw from it, so it is not held together as uniformly as it was meant to be — comfort comes first over durability). So, kudos to Ikea for designing a new toilet seat but this is clearly a first draft.
