This image provided by the King County Washington Sheriff's department shows Deputy C. Neely as she peers into the bowl of the giant toilet that she recovered Wednesday Oct. 17, 2007. The giant toilet was on the side of the roadway covered with a tarp. When the deputy realized what she found she blurted out, "Holy crap, it's a giant toilet!". Sheriff's Sgt. John Urquhart said the toilet facsimile was built by five friends in Colorado Springs, Colo., and was brought to Seattle late last month for a race. It was stolen out of the back of a truck, which was also stolen. Urquhart says the truck has not been found. Photo/King County Washington Sheriff's Department
