It's only funny to big people :P

The suggestions that I can make is to let him play with the toilet. I know that sounds kind of weird, but that's what I did with my 2.5 yr old. I'd let him go and flush the toilet just for fun. Either empty or I'd let him throw a square or two of TP in and let him watch it flush. Show him it's not scary.
And NEVER tell a kid that the toilet eats the poo XP Just makes them think OMG! It could eat me too!!!!

Just remember that while it may be funny to us (I admit it, I LOL'd at Shannins post XD) it's a real fear for the kidlet. So be sympathetic and encouraging :)
Good luck :)

Sorry this wont help but I thought it was funny. We were at a restaurant and the toilet auto flushed just when Tarah was bending down to pull up her underwear. Her face was so close to it, it scared the crap out of her. Not literally but still was funny. I know Mean mommy. lol
