Hey, Asswipe! Sadly, there's a dearth of literature on toilet hygiene. Here in Portugal, being a clean-living people, after wasting a forest of bunched-up paper, we thoroughly wash our arses/asses in a bidet after - pardon my French - taking a dump.

I wonder whether this is a universal tradition. Pray tell. Ugh!

School installs unisex toilets The headmaster claims not to have seen Ally McBeal. I have to wonder, though. But let's face it: it's going to be horrific.
