World toilet day: November 19th
Rocky notes that some of his most popular posts involve “toilet humor.” Mindful of the risks of “straining too hard,” but desirous of maintaining the “flow” on this subject, Rocky notes that November 19th is World Toilet Day.
Although Trophy Wife serves on the boards of numerous charities, she refuses to become an officer of the World Toilet Organization. Her apathy towards this venerable, yet disrespected charity, is typical amongst philanthropists.
Fifty years ago, no one discussed Breast Cancer in polite company. According to the World Toilet Organization, toilet problems face the same taboo today.
Rocky urges his readers to visit the World Toilet Organization website (http://worldtoilet.org/ ) and learn about their work, including the World Toilet College, where they help train people to “help themselves and others.”
The website includes a quote from Jimmy Carter, identified as “Ex-President” (not to be confused with “ex-Lax”):
“Now instead of my being famous for negotiating peace, I’m famous for being the Number One latrine builder.”
November 19th is World Toilet Day. Consider a donation. Or even better, volunteer and “dive- in,” head-first!
