When Squatting, Turn That Frown Upside Down!

Longtime readers of this blog (hi Mom!) know that November 19th is World Toilet Day. But did you know that World WATER Day is March 22nd? Me either. Like World Toilet Day, the idea behind World Water Day is to spotlight the fact that over a billion people on the planet don't have plumbing.
The protesters above are trying to dramatize this by sharing a toilet. But is it really necessary for that lady to grimace like that? When on a toilet, one should always have an agreeable smile. (This offsets the disagreeable act taking place below!)

A toilet protest without toilets is the Big Squat. For this, people squat at noon on World Toilet Day. It's neat! And there's a whole page of people squatting all over the world over here. (Best of all, some of the squatters are even smiling!)
