What the deuce?

Yes, you see it correctly. The world's first toilet paper dispenser and iPod dock all "rolled" into one. I was going to make all kinds of silly puns about this being the "shittiest" mp3 player I've seen yet, but I'll just let this story explain it. (I'll be over here laughing my fool head off. Even the photo comes from Splash News. Ooooh, it's just too much. Make it stop. It hurts.)

The state-of-the-art device - called an iCarta - makes it easier for people to listen to beats while using the bathroom.

It is designed, according to the US manufacturers, to "enhance your experience in the smallest room".

The gadget, which costs around $99, or £54, merges an iPod docking station with a loo roll dispenser.

After music lovers have downloaded songs from the internet on their iPod, they can place it in a socket in the top of the dispenser.

Then while sitting on the toilet, using the shower or luxuriating in a bubble bath, they can listen to their favourite tunes.

So, what songs would you want to play on the commode? What would you go out and download for use in the water closet? Any certain styles of music come to mind? (You wouldn't think heavy metal would be a good choice. Not the kind of place you want to start thrashing around and banging your head...)
