1. I saw a port-a-potty one time that said "Super Bowl Portable Toilets"
I saw that driving on I-25 outside of Denver as it was being towed around on a truck. Good thing I wasn't behind the wheel because I cracked up for a good few minutes.

3. Especially considering that it may have been accidental

8. "We're number one in the number two business"
That's a tagline on the trucks of a port-a-potty company I see driving around locally.
