A person does not expect to go toilet shopping.
Yet here I am, shopping for a toilet. I do not want to shop for a toilet, but it seems unavoidable if, in fact, I am going to have a new toilet. There is nothing wrong with my old toilet, but if you're going to spend a lot of money in order to upgrade your bathroom, you might as well do it right and not put a 40-year-old crapper in a brand new bathroom.
In today's toilet market, having a powerful flush mechanism is important, at least according to promotional material.
"Will flush a bucket of golf balls!"
I am concerned about this metaphor. I am concerned about the likening of fecal deposits to what the kid behind the counter hands you at a driving range.
I will never flush the toilet again without thinking of a bucket of golf balls. Life is not fair.
