This Sinking Titanic Plug Is Just a Tad Distasteful

By Sam Gibbs on at

Relatives of survivors and those killed on the Titanic are up in arms over a simple bathtub plug. The plug bit, of course, is fine; it’s just the rest of it which is just a bit in poor taste. The plug’s chain attaches to a floating rubber Titanic model at an angle, which ends up pulling the nose of the ship down depicting the Titanic as it’s sinking. A “hilarious bathroom accessory” apparently.

I’m all for taking the piss out of almost anything, especially myself; that’s what makes us British. But even I think this is just a tad disrespectful, as the Amazon listing hints at. Maybe just don’t sell this on the 100th year anniversary of Titanic’s tragic sinking, eh? [Orange, Amazon]
