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.
