Amen, Futura Girl. I'm sure PJ is one of the good ones, though. Besides, public toidies are usually well lit!

Ummm...just so you guys know, PurpleJade had the disgusted look still on her face AFTER she came out of the bathroom. I wasn't actually there as it happened.

Maybe a few remakes of the old sign usually found at arts & crafts fairs needs to be made by some of the carvers for our tiki bathrooms:

"If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatie"


How did this post evolve from childhood superstitions to this?

The first post mentions a superstition of someone not wanting to sit on a toilet.

I too am on a rampage agoainst the seat tinklers.. the motto that I made up was...
"IF EVERYONE SAT DOWN... NO ONE WOULD HAVE TO STAND UP!"

(Because the number one excuse that seat tinklers use for getting their tinkle on the seat is "I didn't want to sit in the tinkle on the seat!")

I wish they would just lift the seat. But then, that would mean they'd have to touch it. I guess that puts us back where we started...

I usually DO lift the seat...with my foot. Not only does that eliminate the possibility of an accidental tinkle-touch, it also lowers the potty height making it easier for tiny types like me to hover over.

And you can also see if a toilet snake is lurking under the rim.

Ta da...back on topic.

P.S. Scigirl~
I NEVER wore shoes as a kid here in N.O. and I never got those hookworms that allegedly migrate to your brain and eat it. I did however kill off a few brain cells whilst wearing shoes later in life.

OMG! This post is hilarious! Not breathing when I went by a cemetary made it really hard for me when I was going through my Goth stage. I think I have overcome that fear, but I still gross out when I see a toilet spattered in pee! God I hate that! Living in house full of men, I have issues with toilet seats. The awnser to every question ever asked is "Babywipes" gotta love 'em.

Well - for what it's worth, here's my brain-eating worm story... Well, thankfully, not MINE, but a story....

The publishing company I work for has an author who does a lot of photojournalism overseas, especially in Asia. She was in Thailand, and was sampling some of the local delicacies (seafood, I think, and not monkey-brain soup ala Indiana Jones). Anyway - a couple of months later, she starts getting these intolerable headaches...

She goes to her stateside doctor, and gets x-rayed. They find that a worm has implanted itself in the base of her skull, and was feeding off of the blood vessels that go to her brain! The worm apparently came from whatever she had eaten in Thailand!

Ughhh... ughhh.. ughhh....

This also reminds me of the old earwig-goes-in-one-ear-and-bores-its-way-to-the-other-side-while-laying-eggs story.... I still get a squeam-attack whenever I see one of those little buggers.

UGHHHHH!!!

Frenchy, you're story reminds me of an Urban Legend that made its way around email a few years ago.

WARNING -- The following story should not be read by anyone who is easily offended, faint of heart, or who has close emotional ties to crustaceans.


I warned you .......

The Night Gallery with Rod Serling had an episode with Leonard Nimoy about an earwig...scary stuff!

Whoo... Man. Glad I'm not a seafood-eater. "Never eat anything that carries its' house around with it," as they say...

"tinkle-touch" strikes me as a good insult.
I don't really know how one would use it, but the phrase makes me laugh!

Damnit Pop!
There goes my thought of having an early dinner at Seafood Broiler!

Ugggh! That was one gross story.
