Toilet humor? Well, a few years back, Johnny Carson (yes, I'm that old) had to sue to persuade a Porta-Potty outfit not to use Heeere's Johnny! as their business name.

I'm thinking there may be considerable resistance from the Catholic community if anyone were to try and start a Porta-Potty business called Vati-Can!

More creatively, I would opt for Obamas original campaign slogan as the ultimate, the YesWe-Can!

He should have sued like Chubby did ... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21471967

Hey wait a minute! I looked at the link RD.... "Rock'n'roll singer Chubby Checker is suing HP over an app that used his name as a euphemism for penis size. The Chubby Checker app that appeared on websites for Palm OS devices claimed to guess the intimate measurement based on shoe size. Lawyers acting for the singer are seeking $500 million in compensation, saying the app has done irreparable damage to his reputation."

I don't understand, if the size of ones manhood corresponds to ones shoe size....

Wouldn't that have enhanced his reputation?

You have to admit, that mans got a lot of sole!.... I think if he wanted a job as the spokesperson for Viagra he'd be a real shoe in!

No resistance.

As long as it's clean and  uses wholly water (no impure elements).

I think you may be over anal-ylzing it.

You're right: overanalysis can lead to paralysis.

To me the end result of a can-do attitude is positively candid.

A rather shortlived species of gay dinosaur.... Tyrannosoreass Rex!


Terrance, the fella who was re-tiling our kitchen wall was good at his job, but rather short sighted. "Pterry,dactile is cracked." I told him.

Terrance replied: "Look, Dino - er, I mean Don_1, sorry, but birds like us need to stick together...and not accuse each other of being a craock o' tile!"

I can't recall the last time I did any running, but I've been jogging my memory.

Toilet humour?



Should we eliminate (pun intended) toilet humor?

Or do we need to have a birthday potty celebration?:)

Please, let's not go there, I just couldn't bear it! I'm against any dia-log here, freedom of speech is protected by an important document called....
....the Constipation of the United States of America

Did you hear about the fight at a local Laundromat?

A washing machine beat the crap out of a diaper.
