(Bonus) Haiku #78

Some bathroom jollies?
What else are we to make of
a world plumbing day?

Potty talk, my friend? Smile.
Hope your day is great. And hope you have no plumbing problems.

Another fine haiku. When did we feel the need to name every month, week, and day. Everyone wants equal time! We should lobby for having at least one day of the year that is named for nothing. But then, I guess it would eventually be thought of as World Just a Day Day.

My son, who is living in little village in west Africa, would probably be willing to whoop it up a bit.

He's lived without any plumbing--his water is carried up from a stream--for the past year and a half.

I'm enjoying your haikus. This is so weird - I have just finished three. (Haikus I mean, not bathroom jollies.) It was for a Keri Smith 'challenge' and I had to remind myself of the rules for haikus first. But I haven't visited your blog for a year or so, and here I arrive, to find ... haikus! Synchronicity or what?

Bagman... I LOVE it "World just a Day" Day.

world plumbing day. My pathetic brain went to people celebrating walking around with plungers on their heads.

I think I had better go take a nap and see whether I can relocate my brain. Dave, you are most seriously twisted.

One of my favorite things about you!

there really is such a day?
and what sort of plumbing do they wish to honour? Human plumbing or the place where you employ t?

I don't know what it is about bathroom humor that makes me laugh.

World is going down the tubes.

I was going to make a crack about that. Oops! I just did!

This is a perfect haiku, with a very light mood

Half price plumbing perhaps?

Wise words, about slightly unpleasant things we have in life.

Apologies for missing out on a previous post. Now corrected.

Techno Babe
Potty in both senses of the word?

Bagman and Butler
Amen, I'm for a nothing day!

Dan
I guess that's the sort of set-up the day is really about. All power to him. Thanks for bringing us back to reality.


Anairan
Welcome back. Really good to have you. We do our humble best. The web is built on synchronicity, I've decided.

Jeanette
Good, 'coz I don't deny being twisted!

Friko
There is. No human I'd have thought! Plumbing the depths, perhaps?

Ronda
I think we're all that way.

Madam DeFarge
Yup. Still, the tubes should be properly plumbed, don't you think?

Karen
A crack? Souely not?

ELAINE
Thanks for the compliments.

Dorraine
Or BOGOF?

Mariana
Better than slightly unpleasant words about the wiser things, eh?

Tongue Trip
