I'm sure quite a few people know this already, but the word CRAP has its origins in a man named Thomas Crapper (1836-1910). Some people mistakenly believe that Crapper invented the flushing toilet, but that isn't true. Nevertheless, his company, Thomas Crapper & Co., was so successful in making the toilet popular that his name came to be the slang for...well you know. *Extra: W.C., which can be found on the bathroom doors of some countries, stands for "Water Closet."
