We Brits love our toilet humour, hence the headline 'I've Got To Go...Very Quickly' on a story in The Sun that plumber Colin Furte, from Stamford in Lincolnshire, has built what could be the world's fastest toilet which has a 140cc engine under the seat.  Colin said: "It's scary to drive. I get wet when I go over a bump."

Toilet racing is just another crazy sport in the UK where contestants add a motor to a toilet and see who has the fastest one.  You might hear someone say, "I need to go..." and it doesn't necessarily mean they want to leave; they simply didn't add "...to the toilet".
