The Military-Industrial Complex and My Bathroom
I found the answer: Mamie Eisenhower. She unleashed a veritable plethora of pink bathrooms in the 50's. I escaped lightly; it could have been the pepto-bismal pink shade, or extended to the tile. (Mamie had pink *cotton balls* in her bathroom.)
Don't let the Save the Pink Bathroom people know, but I am going to considerable expense to rip this monstrosity apart. If anyone wants a pink toilet for nefarious purposes, let me know (you pick up). Preference will be given to plans involving explosives.
