About Edited by Erin Barrett


In 1903, W.C. Privy published "The Original Bathroom Companion," making him the foreflusher of bathroom reading as we know it. Composed of jokes, stories, sayings, facts, and other quick-read articles, the "Companion" made a big splash in the smallest room of the house. In his honor, Americans began calling the bathroom a "privy," while British fans adopted the term "W.C."
Thanks to a dissolute Privy descendant, Jack Mingo and Erin Barrett have obtained the rights to Privy's legacy and have created a modern new edition of the bathroom companion. Particularly well-suited for this task, Barrett and Mingo have written two dozen entertaining books including "Just Curious, Jeeves," "Doctors Killed George Washington," "Dracula Was a Lawyer," "Al Capone Was a Golfer," "The Whole Pop Catalogue," and "How the Cadillac Got Its Fins." Barrett and Mingo's column of fun facts can be read daily in the "Minneapolis Star-Tribune."
