Johnny Henry of Laurel, Mississippi has invented a vibrating toilet seat that is designed to 'stimulate' us. He said that the vibrating seat will make us feel good while we are doing our business. Oy!

Henry might have created a cause for a long line at the men's washroom.

“I believe in thinking out of the box,” Henry said. “I wanted to create something that is a little unusual. “This invention is designed to stimulate,” he said. “It's to make you feel good while you are there.”

Implications - Pieces like the Vibrating Toilet Seat by Johnny Henry serve as proof that the demands of a niche demographic are unpredictable and often odd, but still need to be met.
