Um, ok

Via Busymom:

Today is World Toilet Day. What is World Toilet Day, you ask?

The purpose of this day is to have people in all countries to take action, to increase awareness of toilet user's right to a better toilet environment, and to demand for it from the toilet owners. As such, it is also the toilet user's duty to contribute towards its maintenance, cleanliness and hygiene.

The irony is, I am cleaning the toilet right now as I read this. I shit you not (no pun intended, ok, maybe intended a little bit). I put the cleaning stuff in and am waiting the obligatory 10 minutes before flushing. Only 10 minutes is probably turning into 20.

It also happens to be National Ammo Day (U.S. only). What is National Ammo Day, you ask?

The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!

There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that's 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!

7.5 billion rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Well, thats nice, but it is the however many billion rounds that are the hands of non-law-abiding citizens I am worried about.

HI,

I'm a firm believer in keeping the weapons to a minimum. In fact, I believe that instead of creating more weapons of mass destruction, we should try and get more use out of the ones we already have. (just kidding) but it sounded cute when I typed it. I must be a loser since I have nothing to do on a Saturday night except watch my infant baby and type on the computer.

I do not need any!
I have some black bullets (liquorice flavoured) and I'd rather suck them slowly than get them into my belly from the outside!
Bullets breed bullets.

lol, scruffy american, I got nothing to do 'cept the 'puter. And watch the cat. Well, four cats, but three ain't mine, just they gang togther and out vote me.

Liquorice flavoured black bullets - oh boy, I gave my (Greek) boss an Allsort, he thought I was trying to poison him (now there's an idea)

And to be honest, I thought this was a wind-up, but, "The 2005 World Toilet Summit, which will take place in Belfast's Waterfront"... well, where else?

As for National Ammo Day, whether you're pro or anti gun, this must be "National let's get those dumb b***ard gun owners to shell (ouch!) out some bucks and give it to us' day. OK, I'm anti-gun, and if gun owners are dumb enough to fall for this, jeez... how dumb are those guys?

Staying at home on a Saturday doesn't make you a loser. Especially with a baby to watch over. My partying days are over, myself. I'm quite content staying at home and playing with all my toys.

I love me some licorice! Wait, I spelled it wrong, but so what. Everyone thinks I'm satan because I like it. But obviously there are people out there who like it because it gets made.

4 cats is one too many. My husband would say any cats is one too many. Too bad he has to live with three.

I am not fond of guns, I don't like them myself, and I think it is way too easy to get a gun in America. But why does anyone need so much ammo at one time?

Toilets are important, so why shouldn't they get their own day?
