World Toilet Day 2010

Today is World Toilet Day.  This is actually a serious thing, with an awareness raising campaign called The Big Squat and everything.  I found out about World Toilet Day too late to set-up a Big Squat of my own, but I can blog about it.

First, yeah - a serious thing - what with thousands of children dying daily from poor sanitation.  There's a cholera outbreak in Haiti right now.  Poor sanitation affects the weakest of us most - children, the elderly, the disenfranchised, girls and women in patriarchal societies.  There's a Donate link at worldtoilet.org, but if that's too cheeky an organization for you, just google "sanitation aid" or "sanitation ngo" for places to dump your spare change.

Secondly, okay - that's the moral part out of the way.  This blog isn't about making the world a better place or easing suffering or any feel-good shit.  It's about juvenile humour and whatever catches my easily captured attentio...oooohhh SHINY!

Uh - yeah, one of the issues about sanitation is that it's a taboo topic in a lot of places.  People don't talk about it out of embarassment or societal pressure or wevs.  Well that's one area where I can be of help.  I don't get embarassed easily and have difficulty understanding societal pressure.  So I'm going to use the rest of this post space to - as Willow Palin would put it - talk shit.

By the light, of the silvery POOP.
And of course, PENIS.

If you played with Photoshop instead of Excel there'd be an illustration for this post.
