My guest blogger tonight is Laird… who had to take over when he came home to find me rolling on the floor laughing. He writes:
There are those who pooh-pooh the German turlet but to those faint patients I can only quote the court physician from that most excellent film, The Madness of King George:
"There is nothing so eloquent as the stool".
And by cracky, the Germans have found their Cicero, nay, their Demosthenes in that porcelain display case they call the toilet, at least according to the bloggers at This Magazine.
Literary points to anyone who can sniff out the assonance in this posting… Laird’s quite proud of it.
