    After a mention by famed radio show host Howard Stern, online searches for the <a href="http://www.squattypotty.com">Squatty Potty</a> have spiked — a whopping 8,096 percent, said Lauren Whitehouse, Yahoo! web trend expert.

    The feet-elevating concept was created in May 2010, when Robert Edwards’ mother was struggling with serious colon issues. Her doctors recommended she elevate her feet while at the toilet for relief.

    Edwards and his mother’s husband sought a way to help her to raise her feet at the toilet without a bunch of clutter in the bathroom. They invented a sleek, fitted platform that stores under the toilet.

    After researching colon alignment, interviewing doctors and nurses, visiting with pelvic floor specialists and talking with natural health experts, the Squatty Potty was born.

    Edwards said in a news release the piece repositions your body into the natural defecation posture, which is squatting. The alignment it provides allows for smooth bowel elimination and prevents excessive straining.

    The touted benefits include avoidance of constipation and less of a risk factor for colon disease, urinary difficulty and infections.

    Whitehouse said some of the interest might stem from the Paleo diet community running holiday giveaways to spread Squatty Potty cheer. The health benefits of the Paleo diet are also touted by the Squatty Potty founders.

    A recent segment on the Howard Stern Show featured the Squatty Potty. Whitehouse suspects this is a driving factor behind it being searched for by men 67 percent of the time in major cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Dallas.

    The idea of proper posture during the relief process isn't a novel concept. Some cultures use toilets, or holes in the ground, that encourage this positioning, in contrast to the popular western-style toilets used in the U.S.










    :facepalm:
    Scripps Media?
    Beth Shows were on a Scripps channel??

    Howard made an on air plea today to his friends in the media to write amazing things about him.

    My father in laws got a bad back and bought a taller handicap toilet. The tallness really fucks up your shit so I could see how this stool thing would work.

    Another friendly article which makes it seem like Howard is setting trends - too bad the power of the Stern show can't be harnessed to generate more viewers for AGT and Beth's amazing shows.

    Maybe us former fans are losing it and Queen Stern is actually relevant.. I'm mean how do you explain this and the party by a company he sued for 300 million and E.T. covering that abortion of a Christmas card story and Wiggy's cunt ex prostitute wife's positive press? I'm starting too lose my will to fight....

    Jay Thomas had the Squatty Potty guy on about 2 weeks before Stern did. I bought one of them for a friend of mine who is always complaining about being constipated. She loves the thing. So, I bought it because of Jay Thomas, not Howard.

    One of our local talk show hosts (Dr. Dahlia on 720AM) was talking about it for a while - and now stopped talking about it. I figured it turned out to be some kind of hoax, but who knows.

    Wiggy likes it because it makes expelling those hard to reach Gerbils so much easier.

    It comes in one piece. It is bullshit that he said it had to be put together.
