This is what there is to write about when a lockout drags on as long as the current one has. A Toronto Maple Leafs fan, presumably one who misses spending tremendous amounts of money on watching his team finish outside the playoffs on an annual basis, just purchased a toilet for $5300. "What kind of toilet must this be?" you're probably wondering. Is it a magical toilet that transports you to a Narnia-like place where the Leafs have won the Cup since 1967? Does it have a bidet?

"They thought I had money to burn, and surely there was something that I could have better spent my money on," he said.

Yes, your friends were probably right that there was something better you could have spent your money on. Like a child's college fund. Or a down payment on a new car. Or tickets to the Leafs when the NHL starts up again. Or charity. Or ANYTHING ELSE.

Your friends are wise, sir. Listen to them.
