Curse This City: Toilet Stalls

I'm busy in the toilet stall of a local coffee house. It's covered with the usual sort of graffiti and faux-intellectual comments as any public restroom.

Then I see this nugget of wisdom: "ENVIRONMENTALISM IS THE FINAL REFUGE OF A SCOUNDREL."

Which doesn't make much sense, of course, but it certainly provokes thought.

And then I read this: "Anglo Canada is IRRELEVANT," which is quite a silly thing to write next to a Vancouver 2010 sticker.

This leads me to believe that toilet stall inscriptions are the product of one of two things. Either:

1) all reason and logic are suspended while the body relieves itself, or

2) the average public restroom user is a moron.

I'm inclined towards the latter. Public restrooms are nasty, gnarly places that only weak in thought will consider using unless absolutely necessary. And that would explain this nugget of wisdom:

"Sitting in my pau-pau tree, will they make mango mush out of me?"

Bottom Line: toilet stalls make for great morning reading.

I think this is your best post yet.

PS there is some *seriously* good bathroom material at Bennys if one should dare to venture there.
