It's not exactly a Willie Wonka golden ticket, but a golden toilet is a good substitute.

Explaining to the ladies of The View on Friday about her February visit to tape her Oscar special, Barbara Walters provided a memorable detail about a particular pit stop – at the home of Miley Cyrus.

"The day that we got there, the toilet in their house overflowed," said Walters, as even The Huffington Post is documenting.

And, said Walters, "When one overflowed, the whole plumbing system went wrong in the house, and all the toilets overflowed."

Still unsure as to the identity of the faulty-flushing culprit – Walters admits to bringing a rather large crew – the Cyrus family had a sense of humor about the backup, and sent a golden toilet bowl to their guest.

Above the figurine, there is an inscription: "So you'll always remember the Cyrus family."

Cyrus's mom, Tish Cyrus, even joked to Walters, "We don't really mind the fact that you ruined our carpets."
