World Toilet Day November 19,2020

The sad part is more than a billion people are not in a position to afford a decent toilet.

The saddest part is, even if the toilet is available, modern humans are unaware of the toilet etiquettes.

The worst part is the attitude of some special creatures belonging to the homosapiens. These specimens are aware of the Toilet rules but insist on breaking the rules and are at home while using public toilets.

“Some come to sit and think, others just to sit and stink”.  unknown

“Gentlemen: Your aim will help. Stand closer. It’s shorter than you think. Ladies: Please remain seated for the entire performance”  unknown

World Toilet Day is celebrated on 19th November.

    1. Yeah I know it as I was preparing the article.
      And then I felt the length of the article gets lengthened with many more facts and somewhere I have to put a stop.
      Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet rather he developed the ballcock.
      Sir John Harington gave the idea of Flushable toilet in 1596.
      Thank you so much 😀😀😀
