Unsure if Diseases Are Passed from Toilet Seats? Then Always Stand When Going to the Bathroom

Abigail from Hogwild, CA writes to The Satirical Post's health advisor Gregor Wolfowitz.

“Salutations Gregor. Can I really get a disease from sitting on a toilet seat?"

That depends, Abigail. If you’re asking about literal toilet seats, the answer is, your chances are extremely low. Most diseases cannot survive long on the surface of a seat. However, as a self-diagnosed intuitive, I’m keenly aware you asked that question in the metaphorical sense. In which case, the answer is, human toilet seats are real, highly contagious, and you shouldn’t sit on them no matter how much you’re getting paid. So just to be safe, teach your kids (if you have any) to always stand at a forty five degree angle over the seat when going to the bathroom.
