Of course, penis-crush injuries from falling toilet seats are no laughing matter. No, no, no.
Nor will I laugh at the suggestion – apparently made in earnest – that certain toilet seats should be banned from households with younger boys.
I think it’s important that we don’t get distracted by cholera in Zimbabwe, teenage pregnancy, obesity, heart disease, the hundreds of millions who lack clean water and sanitation, malaria, AIDS and all the other flim-flam. We need more people to concentrate on the REALLY serious issues.
Like falling toilet seats.
