"A WTO conference has begun in Beijing." No, not that WTO. This WTO. Love that logo...

They missed a perfect opportunity. I want to see the second expo held in Flushing, NY.

Participants are bowled over by the exhibits... the whole thing is going so well that the organizers are nothing short of flushed with pride.

Was it wrong of me to snicker when John was quoted in the article?

And it's a good thing, too, clevershark. If the expo had tanked, public opinion would have plunged.

There is even a link to the 1. Dry Toilet Conference report (pdf).
According to the cover picture of the report they don't seem to take themselves too seriously.

Puns....

You know, America is really behind the times in terms of toilets. I mean, sure, they get the job done, but where are my heated seats, my music, my "powerful deodorizer"? And this is the greatest country in the world? Pitiful, I tell you.

I don't know, deafmute. When I lived in Japan, I eventually came to appreciate the heated toilet seat during cold winter nights, but it was just alarming the first time I sat down. I couldn't shake the feeling of "Someone else has been here before." It was like Shoeburyness to the nth degree.

They should have titled it "Who Gives A Shit 2004".
