Bathroom Humor, Part Deux

Don't be grossed out, but I used my camera phone to take this picture inside a porta-potty at one of the pit stops [at her 3-day walk]. The people who ran the pit stops were awesome. They were very supportive and worked tirelessly to help us on our way. Many of them had posted signs on the outside and inside of porta-potties, some with jokes and many with inspirational quotes.

I read this one, and couldn't figure out what the hell it meant. I stared at it for at least 2 minutes, trying to make sense of the quote, before I realized that Leonardo da Vinci's name was misspelled. I just found the correct quote online: "The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art." What a difference a letter makes!

MAGGIE explained that very well, and so I have nothing more to say in this post except that the phrase "the human foo" conjures up some hellaciously gross pictures in my mind...and I hope, dear readers, that if you're reading this, it's not over your lunch break. :)

Thanks so much to MAGGIE for finding this very entertaining picture!

Ahh Bathroom Humour...funny how that quote was left inside a port-a-potty. I'm sure that besides 'FOO', plenty of other masterpeices and works of art were left in said port-a-potty hahah

When I was a little kid, I definitely thought my foo was a piece of art...

Who brings a camera into the bathroom anyway? Freak...

Ummm... in a completely unrelated note, do NOT look at photo #8 of 10 in the folder entitled "Pat" on my facebook profile...

@ Number 2 & Evula: Andy Warhol said that art is what you can get away with...howEVER, I don't think I wanna see anyone trying to get away with this sort of art! :)

@ Pat: You bet your ass I looked at that photo--and saw, coincidentally, your ass...well, part of it, anyway...and a VERY pained expression on your face. (Do I even want to know what was going on in that picture, haha?)

Now that you've bet my ass, and also SEEN my ass... was it a good bet?

As for the story behind the picture... basically, the toilets in Korea are quite often nothing more than a hole in the ground. So I decided they were great... for me to poop on!

It was an absolutely ass-tacular bet! :) By the way, Korean toilets sound totally scary.
