"Flush of the Year" Contest Lets Area Residents Rate the City's Best -- and Worst -- Toilets

MizPee (, a free mobile service that helps people on the go find the nearest available restroom no matter when nature calls, kicks off its month-long "Flush of the Year" contest today. Area residents can cast their votes for the best and worst restrooms in Minneapolis by adding and rating their most memorable flushes at The contest runs until midnight August 31, 2008.

The award-winning MizPee service, developed by Yojo Mobile (, lets people on the go enter their location on their mobile browser to retrieve a list of nearby toilets and details of their conditions and amenities.

Users who have visited specific restrooms and experienced conditions first-hand can enter their reviews on the website.

The restroom with the most positive ratings at the close of the contest will be honored with an award to display at their facility or on their website -- and bragging rites among area establishments.
