Back in the 30’s my family lived on a farm in Jersey County, Illinois. Every bed had a chamber pot under it - the colloquial name for which was “Thunder Mug”, for obvious reasons.
My Grandfather had had a stroke, and was basically wheelchair ridden. Grandmother had a chair with a hole in the seat, and a little platform just beneath, where the Thunder Mug resided. Grandfather had to use this on a 24 hour basis, as the outhouse was some 50 yards away from the house, and inaccessible via wheelchair. Such was life in the olden times.
During WWI it was considered the height of humor to purchase a chamber pot with a picture of Kaiser Wilhelm on the bottom.
