    Pot head.

  2. Phyllis says:

    Potty training gone so, so wrong!

  3. Yuri says:

    why it’s saluting?

  4. Jacqueline says:

    This just reinforces my belief that you’re completely great.

  5. Taylin says:

    I was a strange child what can I say. I honestly have no memory as to why I decided to stick my head in the toilet but apparently it seemed like a good idea! And yes my head is still in tact, only the seat suffered the blow from the shears.

  6. sadmanh says:

    too much curiosity isn’t good kid !! Lol

  7. j-lu says:

    I did this when I was 16 in my ’86 Dodge Charger’s steering wheel, which is less excusable and not so cute. Wish someone had taken a pic but I just honked and honked with my chin until I squeezed out. Amazing how hot your ears feel when they’re locked in something!

      WOW !!! Did you have someone tell you when to turn or slow down.

    • 80sgirl says:

      HAHAHA*SnOrK*HAHAHA!! THAT “behind the awkward” story was so funny it didn’t even need a visual…hahahaha!! -Um, why did you stick your head through the steering wheel? (One of those “teenagers-are-just-grown-toddlers” things?)

  8. Susie says:

    And of course Dad had to take a picture…

  9. Goofball says:

    Maybe he needed a hair cut…and when somebody in his family suggested a Bowl Cut…The first thing that came to his mind was…A Toilet Bowl Cut !!!

  10. Erin says:

    I would ask why you stuck your head in the potty, but I have a toddler, so I no longer ask such questions.

    Ah, childhood, the days of “it seemed like a good idea at the time…”

  11. Johnny Fritz says:

    what’s with kids sticking their heads in their potties?

  12. Brett says:

    Am I the only one creeped out by the kid’s freakishly large pupils? I can’t look at this picture for long without fearing for the safety of my soul.

  13. CTBRK says:

    Taylin is thinking, “Oh CRAP!!” :- )

  14. carol says:

    The kid isn’t freaking out, and I don’t see any tears. Mom is remaining calm. Great job, Mom! I wonder if the person taking the photo is cracking up!

  15. Andi from NC says:

    Clearly this mom knows how to diffuse a situation. I would think a little person would be screaming their head off, but this one’s all, “Good grief, I just wanted to see how it worked and look what happened. Momma, can get a little assitance over here?”

  16. Suzy says:

    It’s not a seat which actually attaches to the toilet, it just sits on top of the regular toilet seat. So the child didn’t necessarily put their face in the toilet, though most kids wouldn’t have a problem with doing that anway!

  17. Jacobi says:

    It kind of looks like a halo!

  18. Brian says:

    It is nice to see that someone grabbed a camera instead of helping out. Geez!

  19. JerseyPam says:

    How did you end up facing the back of the toilet??! I’m imagining a back bend dip or a dive off the tank.

  20. Fiona says:

    What were you trying to find in the toilet??!!!

  21. sallyomalley says:

    Did the family in the pictures below you cut it off? If so, do you still have a head?

  22. debby says:

    My son did that when he was 3! Got the “Cushy Tushie” off with a litttle help from olive oil :-)

  23. scruffy says:

    Jeese. My wife always tells me to get my mind out of the toilet. But I never actually saw anyone actually put their whole head in one.

  24. CarrieM says:

    Thank goodness the seat wasn’t bolted to the toilet at the time.

  25. Matt says:

    He should ask a member of the family below to help him out.

  26. Gonzo says:

    Is it just me, or does that seat belong to a training toilet? And if so, wouldn’t he have gotten nastiness on his head sticking it in there (since they’re so shallow)?

  27. SeƱor Loco says:

    This also happened to me when I was about five years old. However, instead of using gardening shears, my parents hired a witch doctor to have my head shrunken.

  28. Elizabeth says:

    I love how he’s still thinking about what happened, and how to get out of it. That toddler delayed-reaction look.

  29. Rick says:

    What had to be cut off? The seat, or the head?
