Million Dollar Monday

Did you know that the average person spends 11,862 hours in the bathroom, or one year four months and five days, in a lifetime? That’s according to Roto-Rooter who has launched their “Pimped Out John Sweepstakes.” They’re starting this contest because the “crapper” as they say, has not really been revolutionized since a flushable toilet was invented back in 1898.

For some, the bathroom is the only quiet place in the house, the only place you can get away from it all.  Why not make it a more enjoyable place to be? You can always read, you may even take your laptop along for the ride, but Roto-Rooter has a better idea. They’ve  put together an ultimate bathroom with just about anything you’d ever want, and you have a chance to win it all!  It includes the following improvements:

  • Philips 20 inch LCD TV and Star Wars DVD
  • Xbox 360 gaming system
  • Philips DVD player
  • Gateway EMachine laptop computer with fully articulated robot arm
  • iPod with stereo docking station equipped with toilet paper dispenser
  • Roto-Rooter “emergency” button
  • TiVo recorder
  • Avanti refrigerator with beer tap, stocked with drinks and snacks
  • Magazine rack and subscriptions to Sports Illustrated, ESPN and GQ
  • Bike pedal exerciser
  • Cup warmer/cooler

The contest runs until April 2, 2007, and the winner will be crowned on National Plumber’s Day (yes, there’s such a thing) , April 25, 2007. The motive behind the Pimped-Out John? Well, Roto-Rooter’s vice president of marketing says, “We hope that with the ‘Pimped out John,’ young people especially, will have a good laugh and think of Roto-Rooter when they need high quality plumbing and drain service.” 

Winning this pimped out bathroom may require some work.  I don’t know about you, but my bathroom certainly isn’t wired for all of this! So, with that said, click here to enter in on the fun… go on.. you know you want to :)
