05/10/2004: The good folks at "The People's Pharmacy" (a syndicated newspaper column)....
apparently tackled the burning question of what (if any) infections you can contract from a toilet seat (the short answer: none, in all probability).
Of course, that reminds me of the old joke about the woman who brought her virginal daughter to the doctor, only to learn (after the test results came back) that the daughter had contracted gonorrhea. The mother, believing it impossible that her daughter wasn't as pure as the driven snow, anxiously asked the doctor, "Well, she could get it on a toilet seat, couldn't she?" Responded the doctor absentmindedly, "She could, but it'd be damned uncomfortable."
