“Potty Humor” by Linda Martin Andersen
Yesterday, I found three examples of Potty Humor.
- Riding down the highway I travel often, I noticed a young long leaf pine. It reminded me of toilet bowl bristles and I giggled. “A toilet bowl brush for a giant toilet,” I thought.
- Almost immediately after that, I stopped for a traffic light behind a septic tank truck for portable toilets. It’s motto: We’re #1 in the #2 business. Another good laugh.
- My third discovery: A blog post by John Holton. Read here:
I also recently wrote about the “magic of threes.” https://lindamartinandersen.wordpress.com/2016/01/25/just-jot-it-january-25-prestidigitation/
Who would have thought “the magic of threes” would lead to three examples of potty humor in one day? Do you look for examples of threes? I like to see what things stand out to me as I go about my day. Yesterday, it was potty humor. Tell about one of your humorous discoveries.
- Do you enjoy reading “potty humor?” Tell about a book, comic strip, cartoon, etc. you found funny.
- Is potty humor only for kids? Why or why not?
- Do you have a funny family story you can share about potty humor?
- What is #2 business? Does your family use this term?
- Write a riddle or joke about potty humor. My attempt…
Riddle #1: What do long leaf pines and toilet brushes have in common?
Riddle #2: What is the best room to read potty humor if you’re on a diet?
Answer: The kitchen. The jokes will kill your appetite.
