Let's talk about toilet humor. That thing we all used to laugh at in middle school, but left behind in favor of edgy sarcasm and cynical remarks about society. *Adjusts fedora* Anyways, I'm covering for our good friend TUT (Isn't he great? Much cool. Such badass. Wow. Metal. Very awesome.), since he's a bit busy on a clandestine operation of top prioriTAY. You won't see much of him this week, so I'll be here to replace him as the purveyor of fine lame jokes. Anyways, onto potty-related stuff.
Ever been to a public restroom? No? Well, they're these facilities open for public use, usually containing a lavatory and all the relevant utilities and services. I know, it's a pretty innovative concept, huh? They may save lives, or be the place where they're taken . . . or even where they're made, depending on how prudent one is. But I digress . . . They're interesting places. I'd say it's one of the few locations where raw, human essence can be encountered. Whether it be because of their intended purpose or because of how little respect we have towards public facilities, public restrooms have the darndest things. The topic of today was conceived when, upon stopping at a rest area and heeding nature's call, I encountered a curious display of our identity as a culture . . . On the urinal, a star of David was carved. No biggie. People carve and write stuff on the stall walls all the time. But what made these glyphs special, was that they were crossed out, and replaced by a swastika. Ah, the easy joke. Tasteless, concise, and full of enough playful spite to elicit a chuckle from even the most jaded of souls. But what made it even more special, was the fact that it too was crossed out, and replaced by a cross. When you think about it, public restrooms are like Youtube comment sections. I'm not the first to make the comparison, and I won't be the last. And just like those chain comments on Youtube, this stall was riddled with a similar phenomenon. Climaxing in having a dollar sign replacing the cross. Yupp. There we have it, ladies and gentlemen.
So, my question to you today is, what are your memorable public restroom experiences?
