Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Dear God above, the horror!!

    Communing with nature, contemplating the universe and instead of crispy medicated bog paper keenly awaiting the suspect pleasures of a pulsating massage spray followed by the warmth from a power dryer. Instead of which the crapper bursts into flame beneath you.

    Japan's leading toilet manufacturer Toto is offering free repairs to 180,000 toilets after some of them caught fire.

    There have been three incidents of the electric bidet accessory in Toto's Z series catching fire.

    "Fortunately nobody was using the toilets when the fire broke out and there were no injuries," a company spokesman said.

    "The fire would have been just under your buttocks," she added.

    Toto is a pioneer of high-tech toilets with built-in bidets, which are popular in Japan.

    The Z series features a pulsating massage spray, a power dryer, a "tornado wash" flush, and a lid that opens and closes automatically.

    It is not sold outside Japan


    Must be part of the batch designed for Japanese game shows.
