Poop on World Toilet Day!

l 100+ pointsm 1+ points - Newb

Today is World Toilet Day. How damned lame is that?

Yeah, I know three-quarters of the world squats over a shallow trench outside their thatch-roofed huts or on the bare wet ground in a rice patty; and I know they wipe their asses with banana leaves, corn cobs, or a handful of dirt, if at all. And yeah, I realize all those high-minded eggheads at the World Toilet Summit over in Beijing are trying to elevate the developing world out of its Stone Age state of plumbing. But ask yourself: "What's so relevant about World Toilet Day anyway?"

Absolutely nothing!

Now, World Poop Day, on the other hand, is a day of real unification -- especially as envisioned by Dave Praeger, creator and editor of this august site.

While humanity teeters on the very brink of annihilation, divided by race, religion, and politics, with violence and horror threatening to overwhelm any progress toward universal peace and liberty, what single human feature unites us all? Poop! And even though Poop For Peace Day was April 16, 2004, do not despair -- for it is never too late to poop for peace.

The philosophy of this PoopReport is that the act of pooping acknowledges our shared humanity, and consummates our unity with all other living creatures. As humans, whether black, white, red, yellow, or brown, we all must relieve our bowels of their burden. Conservative, liberal, socialist, royalist, revolutionary, pacifist, or war hawk, we are all united in the struggle against the tyranny of the bowel. Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Pagan, Wiccan, or whatever, we all must offer our sacrifice at the altar of Grump.

So, to acknowledge World Toilet Day, PoopReport suggests that instead of contemplating the toilet as "a tool of social change," go take a good old-fashioned shit! Yeah, think of Bush, Blair, bin Laden, Sharon, Saddam, and the Pope. Think about the fact that twelve or so hours after they nosh, there

Ok, nobody has posted any thing in two years. I will be a good sport and make the first contribution.

I made my contribution this morning. Ironically, it was the first turd that my new toilet had trouble getting down, and it wasn't all that big. I guess I better keep my poop chopper just in case.

Somebody should design a toilet with some sort of a mechanical poo chopper. But then, some of us would probably miss clogging up toilets.

This is very well written for two years ago. Nice one!

H1, don't get rid of your turd chopper just yet. No toilet can flush everything. I would definitely keep mine handy. What's weird, though, is that mine clogs when there is a big pile of butt paste that can't decide which part is going down first. No chopper can help me there.

Yeah DF. My toilet is supposed to have a "guaranteed one time flush".

I should know better, I jammed up a turbo flush toilet one time, and to jam up one of those toilets is a real achievement.

It is amazing how not only different cultures have different opinions about poop, but also how different the toilets are. You have the Dutch shelf toilet, then there is the traditional Western toilet, The "squatters" in Asia, Italy has its own version of the toilet, some cultures use jars, then there is the Ramans, Egyptians, ..... on down the line.

There are toilets that use foam to flush, some Swiss toilets encase the poop (I don't know how).

In honor of World Toilet Day, GottaMan and I have slated the destruction of what must be one of the ugliest toilets in Orange County. Why would someone make a BROWN toilet?!?
