I was driving back to the airport in Arkansas and had to take a picture of all this "hay".
Anyway, the first time I saw these "rotating" toilet seat covers was in Louisville , Kentucky in about 1996. I was in a restaurant with some friends and we had a few adult beverages.
I was laughing so hard when I came back from the bathroom I could hardly speak because I had never seen a toilet seat cover that rotated when you pushed a button. I still laugh now.
I had not seen one since until the bathroom at the Northwest Arkansas Airport. Seeing the cover brought it all back to me and I am still laughing. Hmmm...maybe you should not ask a former microbiologist about toilet seat covers since the dirtiest place in the bathroom is probably the door handle on the way out and not the toilet seat.
Only in the south???? If anyone in the north has seen these, please let me know where. ;)
