World Toilet Day

Believe it or not, I take pains to avoid gratuitous scatology. (Is there any other kind?) But since the World Toilet Organization has declared November 19th to be World Toilet Day, the recent news below seems especially timely.

SUWON, South Korea - Sim Jae-duck has made his political career as South Korea's Mr. Toilet by beautifying public restrooms. Now he's got a home befitting his title: a toilet-shaped domicile complete with the latest in lavatory luxury.


'Mr. Toilet' -- now there's a distinct sobriquet for you.

And HowStuffWorks explains what would happen if everyone in the US flushed at the same time. Go ahead; you know you've always wondered about that.
