The Flush Heard Round the World (9/5/06)

Pity the poor toilet. Is there a more abused fixture in the modern home or office? Consider the unnamed substances dumped into it, yet it performs its duty without complaint, day in and day out. And if it should fail, do we take into consideration the invaluable work it does? No, we heap complaint and vituperation on it. Does no one seek relief for the humble commode? Yes! Fortunately for all of us, the World Toilet Organization meets regularly to discuss the latest developments in toilet science and technology; to keep the "comfort" in "comfort station." Of course, even the WTO has its critics, but the organization remains steadfast in its advocacy for the billions of toilets around the world. So, the next time you use the toilet (and you will), take a moment to thank those who are dedicated to providing you with the best evacuation experience.
