Caustic Ingestion: Acid

Toilet bowl cleaners in the United States tend to be acidic in nature so I chose the ‘Ty-D-Bol Man’ as our victim for this Caustic Ingestion flashcard.

The Ty-D-Bol Man was a little guy in a motor boat that would drive around in your toilet and keep it clean. As a kid I always hoped to see him when I lifted my toilet lid, but never did. As it turns out, Tidy Bowl man was also an inspiration for Dave Chappelle who immortalised East Coas Rapper Redman in the NSFW “Redman’s Potty Fresh” skit.
