#109: Violent Prude Shocked By Toilets

The other day my bath drain blocked. That’s when I realized that bath tissues are not really to be used in the bath.

Bath tissues are for toilets. Who knew?

Okay, I’m not really stupid enough to use bath tissues in the bath, tempting as the name sounds. Yet, some days I simply cannot resist arguing with people who direct me to a place called the restroom or the bathroom when I actually asked for directions to their toilet.

I mean, really! Their restrooms never have cozy couches or comfy chairs and their bathrooms have no baths.

It seems to me that the more graphically violent our movies and television shows become, the more prudish we become in voicing what is more natural to the body.

Blood and guts and gore are acceptable in public, but please don’t shock us by asking for the toilet if the scenes make you sick.

Welcome to my side of the nonsense divide.
