Joe the Plumber's Got Nothing on This Guy

There have been moments over the years where our collective chest has swelled with pride over the accomplishments of fellow Silver Springers, such as when Dominique Dawes won an Olympic Gold Medal, when Goldie Hawn won an Oscar or when John Walker Lindh gained worldwide fame as the "American Taliban". Now, one Silver Spring man has trumped all the accomplishments of those that came before him.

I am of course referring to Brett Hill of Best-Hill Services, the visionary creator of the Toilet Cycle:



Did the Teutuls have enough ingenuity to create a rolling bathroom on American Chopper? I think not.

I will definitely call this guy next time I need a plumber, but if the doesn't roll up in the Toilet Cycle, I'm sending him home. (Unlike the aforementioned Joe the Plumber, I presume Mr. Hill actually has a plumbing license.)

The story has even gone national - it was featured recently on both the Today Show and Countdown With Keith Olberman. (The Olberman segment can be viewed here - it starts at 0:41.) Amazingly, neither report managed to pluralize "Silver Spring".



If you want to catch a glimpse of Toilet Cycle in person, it will be gracing our fine streets next month as (the best) part of the Silver Spring Thanksgiving Parade.

Now, if only I can get a toilet installed right in front of my computer, life would be complete.

Maybe Joe the Plumber can hook me up on the cheap. Without the plumbing license, I figure I can pay him cash under the table.

Cash under the table? That will certainly cut down on his income taxes!

Yeah, I figure a guy pulling $250K as an unlicensed plumber could use a break.

This gives whole new meaning to the phrase "dropping the kids off at the pool."

It is a well cooked story to fill the hungry belly of zealots. It is an art to make a hill out of a mole. thanks.

It's an innovative and creative idea but we should remove the toilet and put a comfortable cushion instead, and use the tricycle for physically handicapped. I think that would serve the real purpose.

It is really an inspiring post about some of the great silver springers. It is very exciting to know about Brett Hill of Best Hill Services, creator of the toilet cycle.

A very small bath that was in need of attention! I showed you how it has evolved. The color palette that once was bold and heavy it is now light and airy. plumbing Gauteng
