On the Subject of Bathrooms
There is today an article in the DT, (right at the bottom) on bathrooms in pictorial format.
Apart from noting the appalling vulgarity of most of them and their suitability only for oligarchs, nabobs and third world dictators, not forgetting British politicians and wankers, sorry bankers; on further examination I noted some rather disturbing details.
It must be that the above categories of creatures, not being truly mortal, do not defecate! In many of the pictures there is no provision made for bog paper! Or do they have slaves on standby to wipe their arses?
Equally after they have showered or bathed there appears to be no provision for a towel, do they shake dry like a dog? Do the peasant come and lick them dry? Not only is there no provision for a towel but no storage for clean ones either.
Another consideration, is no one in their households either old or disabled? Not a grab bar in sight, what do they do with these sad remnants of humanity? Bang them on the head, so as not to disturb the decor?
The final horror of it all is that many of these pinnacles of bad taste have been created within Georgian houses according to the realtors! Can you imagine butchering a Georgian house to produce this anathema to good taste?
A final comforting thought, most of these excrescences are created with no curtains and no opaque glass, one can only hope that the new owners are picked off by snipers, they deserve to be!
Sorry no linky thing.
