An innovative English lawyer with an aversion to getting poo on his hands has traded in his crappy job with Osborne Clarke Lawyers for, well, another crappy job, reports RollonFriday.

Corporate lawyer Jon Rathbone has invented a potty - known as a 'pourty' - which has taken the baby industry by storm, and Rathbone is literally turning sh*t into money as the dollars start rolling in thanks to his clever invention.

Now Folklaw doesn't profess to know a great deal about the mechanics of an ordinary potty, but understands that Rathbone's invention is useful in that one doesn't have to manually remove any baby-sized parcels from the bowl.

Instead, a clever little pouring duct lets parents pour the unwanted matter straight into the toilet bowl, letting it slide away - hand's free - into watery oblivion.

A quick rinse of the potty and it's ready for use again, with no long term psychological effects for parents.

The invention is now being sold in one of Britain's biggest supermarket chains, along with 60 private retailers, and is set to go global as sales sky rocket.

No sh*t.
