The Big Squat

Are you ready to do The Big Squat?

Assume the position, bitches …



November 19 is World Toilet Day.

The World Toilet Organization asks you to squat for one minute today to acknowledge the need for proper sanitation worldwide.

Participating in the Big Squat is simple. Simply squat for one minute in a highly visible location, and then have a plan to explain to anyone who notices WHY you're all squatting.

Squatting is actually a very healthy bathroom stance, but it's also a symbol of the problems in the developing world, where a lack of sanitation forces people to squat in fields, on train tracks, or in other open places. Open defecation is actually one of the worst problems facing the developing world.


Looks like our friend Piggy’s already got a head start! …


Click to enlarge to see that the sign says "There are more toilets further on"

Please do not leave the public facilities pebbledashed, as Piggy has done.

As for the rest of you…

Ready. Set. SQUAT!

  3. You are on your own with that MJ.

    I did encounter a homeless woman squatting on a public street in San Francisco with her sweatpants down her ankles. That, more than horrified me.

    Outragious!

  5. That man is going to need a bigger diaper! Him and everyone else with pebbledash issues.


    Perhaps if people in the developing world ate less, they'd squat less...

  6. Try as I might, I just couldn't help but click on the pebbledash link. I had a horrifying feeling it'd be an actual image and that I'd vomit while eating my breakfast. You can imagine my relief when it turned out to be only a decription.

    Happy squatting!

  8. Somehow I get the feeling that man won't be getting up from his squat without assistance....

    I'm just thankful he's not naked.

    That would do squat for me...

  12. Saw a guy take a squat out on the corner in front of The Village Inn, right across the street from Yeagers. Yes I did. Right out on Northwest Avenue there. I used to think it was a comment on the quality of food served at the Village. Now I believe it was a protest against Yeagers 'cooling off period' gun sales policy.

  13. BOXER: squat this:
    FIRSTY


    No need to be rude.

    KAPI: Ha! You don't know squat!

    But I know his brother, Squirt.

    As do you.

    XL: I think I'll celebrate Tranny Appreciation Day again instead.

    Are you wearing your false eyelashes?

    DONN: I can assure you that I will be doing diddly-squat for world toilet day...

    We were counting on you to represent Canada.

    Welcome to America.

    See Ms. Nations’ comment.

    BEAST: Cant I just donate a toilet roll or something ??

    Did you steal it from Café C?

    EROS: That man is going to need a bigger diaper! Him and everyone else with pebbledash issues.

    How about a pair of Giant Underpants?

    Not every link here on Infomaniac is a cake link, you know.

    IVD: P.S. I'm not dead. Well, no more so than usual.

    But which of your four personalities is speaking?

    PONITA: Somehow I get the feeling that man won't be getting up from his squat without assistance....

    I knew I should have gone with his all-nude pic.

    GEOFF: What a great idea. I'm straining to get out there and show the world.

    It’s a movement you can really get behind.

    SAVANNAH: like ponita, i'm just glad he wasn't naked! thank you for the public service notice.

    See comment to Ponita, then.

    MAGO: Schitt - it's a problem.

    A problem that sounds the same in German.

    KAZ: No - it's raining.

    Do it from the comfort of your own home, then!

    Honestly, the excuses we have to deal with around here.

    MICHAEL RIVERS: I think I might pass on this social cause. Maybe next year!

    I don’t suppose it would go over well at one of your 52 restaurants over the main course.

    You might have to save it for dessert.

    I believe this act of his is covered in your First Amendment, is it not?

  14. There shalt be no squatting. I think I read that in the bible.

    Cunts.

    See my comment to CyberPoof.

    But was it before or after all the begetting?

    MUTLEY: I dont think its actually world toilet day. I think you made that up in order to show photos of fat ugly men...

    It’s my revenge for you sending me the TINNED version of Fray Bentos pies.

    What the hell is going on with your blog?

    Last time I checked, it was in Latin!

    And there was a ghastly pair of pink house slippers at the doorstep.
