Waterbuck. On one of the drives, Piet (a new guy) told a story about how they got this white ring. Seems that while on the Ark, Noah was not happy that one of the animals was using his toilet and not being able to catch anyone, he painted the seat white. The Waterbuck didn't know this and sat down. Hence the white circle. You can go to the WE blog and hear the complete story by Piet. Just click on the vids of the new people.
