U.N. to celebrate ‘World Toilet Day’

U.N. to celebrate ‘World Toilet Day’

ToiletThe Weekly Standard shared the news today that the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to mark “World Toilet Day.” The day will be celebrated on November 19.

Where to begin? How about by noting that U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was unavailable for comment? Too easy?

What about this one? Emperor Kim Jong-un said he would honor the occasion by descending from his throne and walking among the common people of North Korea.

The U.N. itself acknowledged in its press release that “amusement and laughter” were sure to follow the announcement.

The purpose of the day is not to commemorate advances in indoor plumbing but to raise awareness about “open defecation,” a practice so common that 1.1 billion people worldwide do follow the lead of bears and squat in the woods.

The president could do his part to cut down on the amount of compost, if that would help. All he has to is agree to stop talking for a few days.
