Surprise, Bristol Palin: A few Alaskans enjoy bidets, too

Don’t tell Bristol Palin, but there appears to be a bidet or two or more in Alaska. There is even, heaven forbid, a bidet in that outpost called Fairbanks and in Cantwell. Yes, Cantwell, the widespot along the George Parks Highway between Fairbanks and Anchorage.

Bristol Palin’s new reality show — “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” — debuted on Lifetime this week and Palin, as the Palins do, was out there telling America all about Alaska and its shortage of “funny fountains” as some hicks from the sticks might take a bidet to be.

What exactly is a bidet, you ask? It’s essentially a fountain that bathes the genitals and anal region after using the restroom. Bidets have enjoyed much more popularity in other countries and cultures than they ever did in the U.S., and were considered more sanitary than using paper to clean oneself.

Turns out Bristol Palin was surprised by the prevalence of bidets in Los Angeles.

“… ‘There’s a ton of bidets in this (Los Angeles) house, and I don’t think there’s one bidet in all of Alaska,'” she said in the show’s premier. The line was picked up by an ABC News blogger.

As to the younger Palin’s claim “I don’t think,” there can be little argument, but obviously none of the show’s producers thought it worthwhile to do a quick Google search on Alaska properties for sale that include undercarriage-rinsing bidets.

    Well I have to say my relatives who live in Italy all have them. I really like them. I wish I could afford to put one in my little house because I live in the country and its good to wash your private parts and your feet. You feel pretty refreshed.

      You can get bidet attachments for the toilet that are not expensive. They are not the traditional standalone bidets of course but they work. One source (Amazon) has some well rated inexpensive ones.

    Bristol Palin – white trash from Wasilla, AK!!! That family is horribly under educated and without class! Feel sorry for that little boy being raised within that group.

    Sarah on the ´08 campaign trail: ¨Thereś a ton of underwear in the Lower 48, and I don´t think thereś one pair of underwear in all of Alaska.¨

    I think the Princess of Makes-Crap-Up-Istan would benefit from a thorough power hosing of both ends from a turbo bidet (do they make those?) to cure her cranial-rectal inversion.

    The Chateau in Spenard had a bidet, and that was nearly 20 years ago. Maybe Moon’s House did, not sure.

      Bwaaahaaaa…
      I made my boyfriend take me to The Chateau…he pulled a card out of his pocket and lied about it. Except that, at the time, I didn’t know what it was…Ha!
      Jim Sifsof told me it was an after-hours club! Liar!

    For the record, I grew up in a house in Wasiila, Alaska that had a bidet.. Circa 1970’s

      Good for you, you really think she thought there were NO bidets in Alaska? Good Lord people… She’s not that dumb! She made a little comparison, is it honestly necessary to pick some tiny little comment out of what she said and make a HUGE ass deal about it?

        She’s not that dumb? Evidence would suggest otherwise.

        That’s okay if you have never heard of a bidet, Sarah. Don’t worry – neither did Donald Trump.
        No problem. ‘Cause you’re different. And special. And more qualified than anyone, ever. No, really.

    I fear the production had to tell Bristol and Willow the bidets were not stupid fountains so low only small children could drink from them.

    Sarcasam aside, Bristol is blatantly lacking culture to declare no bidets in AK.

    Bristol is dumber than a bidet. Bidets have a specific purpose. Bristol’s purpose is scamming idiots who are as dumb or dumber than her.

    I don’t know what kind of cheesy house Bristol, Willow and Tripp stayed in– bidet indeed! For easily the last ten years, the latest and greatest toilet equipment has come from Japan. One version is called a Washlet. It’s an electronic toilet which can also serve as a bidet. Special features include a choice of spray: gentle, pulsating, hot or cold, direction of spray, hot air drying after spraying, heated toilet seat, and deodorizing. The toilet seat can automatically open and close. Bidets are so yesterday. Get with it Bristol!
