ALMOST every adult is still a little bit afraid the toilet monster might be real, it has been confirmed.
The Institute for Studies found that 93 percent of adults feel a moment of anticipation that the monster will rise from the lavatory and drag them down into its underworld kingdom.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “While all of our subjects had different ideas about what the toilet monster looks like, and what he’ll do to you once he gets you, everybody agreed that the monster presents an immediate danger to their lives.”
Tom Booker, a participant in the study, said: “He only appears at night, and flushing wakes him.
“You have until the toilet stops flushing to be safely back in bed, or you’re toast. You have to run as fast as you can, which is even harder when the floor is lava.
“Forget about washing your hands. There is no time.”
