In spite of protests from many sectors alleging elitism, Proctor & Gamble, makers of Charmin toilet paper, have announced that they will go forth with a plan to open a series of not so public restrooms catering to the toileting needs of the wealthy.
Dubbed Le Restroom Exotique, the facilities will have only the finest amenities, from luxurious toilet paper that is 10% silk, to gold plated faucets on the sinks. Access is for members only. Entry is gained by swiping your membership card in a recognition device on the door.
Gordon Gecko, professor of marketing and chairperson of the Business Ethics Initiative at Benedict Arnold University's Jeff Skilling School of Business Administration, says that he is bullish on the idea. "I really think Proctor and Gamble are onto something significant here. I see upscale restrooms one day replacing the country club and golf course as the venue for social climbers and upwardly mobile types."
According to Proctor and Gamble, the restrooms will open in select cities in the United States and Europe later this year. Membership will be by invitation only.
