Yesterday was “World Toilet Day.” If it hadn’t been for Fox News, I wouldn’t have known anything about it. How could I have been so inattentive to current events? Hopefully I didn’t miss a Toilet Day Parade.

I researched this matter on Wikipedia (inquiring minds want to know). I learned a group of fifteen people organized the World Toilet Organization (WTO), and conducted a Toilet Summit in 2001. A toilet summit?? That must be a site (or “sight” - either way works) to behold. The WTO designed November 19th each year as “Toilet Day.” Maybe they made this decision while sitting on the summit. I have an urge to continue writing, but prudence tells me to end this blog now.

But before some uptight blog respondent takes me to task for frivolity on a serious subject, please let me add I’m well aware lack of proper toilet facilities exposes millions of good people throughout the world to deadly diseases - and that’s not funny at all. In our affluence we really do take too much for granted.
