Mark my words, when a society has to resort to the lavatory for its humour, the writing is on the wall - Alan Bennet
We've all met people who are supposedly incredibly intelligent but don't know which way to sit on a lavatory - Stephen Fry
[First - please note that the first word of the title to my previous post should read Welcome NOT Welocme. (You knew that didn't you). ]
This item in the paper made me laugh out loud and spill my yogurt:
There's no escape from the Health & Safety Gestapo. On Tayside, the NHS has just issued guidelines on how to use the bathroom.
A four-page leaflet, entitled **Good Defecation Dynamics, has just been published in Dundee.
You couldn't make it up. It gives advice on the safest way to sit on the toilet. 'Do not slump down but keep a normal curve in your back. Make sure your feet are well supported.'
You get the gist.
So this is what Gordon means when he talks about 'Investment' in public services. Coming soon from the NHS - Sucking Eggs: A Guide for Grandmothers.
**This is the bit where the yogurt got spilled.
