Cool

That toilet may be one of the low-flow so-called "water saver" toilets, or you may have a plastic toy, toothbrush, curler, etc., hung up in the built-in trap of the toilet.
Try feeding a plumber's auger snake into the trap and crank away. If that doesn't open it up, you may have to pull the toilet and try to dislodge it from underneath, if that is the problem.
Go to "Repair/Fix-It" above and to http://www.bhglive.com/homeimp/ and look in the Plumbing sections under Toilets for illustrated how-to info.
Good Luck!
