There are at least a dozen apps that can help you find your next read when you’re on the go, and now there’s a site that can help you find a story while you’re on the porcelain throne.

This is a fun idea, but is it really going to see much use?

I mean, a dedicated reader will either have a book, ereader, smartphone, or another reading device when they’re going in to the restroom anyway (unless they’re the sanitary types that leave the gadgets outside). Any reading device will have a cornucopia of reading material (and possibly also other distractions like Twitter and Facebook), so there’s not much use for a site like PoopFiction.
