“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.”

“Potty Humor” by Linda Martin Andersen

Yesterday, I found three examples of Potty Humor.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Writing Prompts:

  1. Do you enjoy reading “potty humor?”  Tell about a book, comic strip, cartoon, etc. you found funny.
  2. Is potty humor only for kids?  Why or why not?
  3. Do you have a funny family story you can share about potty humor?
  4. What is #2 business?  Does your family use this term?
  5. Write a riddle or joke about potty humor.  My attempt…

Riddle #1:  What do long leaf pines and toilet brushes have in common? 

Answer:  Bristles.

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.
